So excited to be mixing #write31days with #fiveminutefreewrites because that's all I have time for these days...

The #fmfparty prompt today is NEW:

Sometimes when you get stagnant in creating, it's time for something new! A new technique, a new product, or simply new stamps. A while ago, a friend of mine was moving and cleaning out her stamping supplies. She gifted me with a large box of stamp sets that she was cleaning out!! I went on a stamping rampage when I got that box. The new stamps gave me a rush of of new ideas and I couldn't wait to create... and I made time to create.  

It's been a while since I went through that box. I know there are still plenty of stamps that I haven't even touched. Maybe it's time for me to gift someone else with some new enthusiasm for stamping by sharing with them!

This summer, I bought myself a new set of stamps! It was a huge splurge for me, but I had a plan already in mind. I knew that I wanted to create cards for actual snail mail and I wanted it to be encouraging. So I bought a set of Scripture stamps and then I created and created and created.

Here are just a few of what I came up with (I actually made over 30 in a week's time)

The question is this: What colors would you use with these Scripture stamps? Wanna special order a set? Stop by my shop!

My word prompt came from Kate Motaung who is doing 31 days of 5 minute free writes this month!  Five minutes of writing is about all I can squeeze in these days, but it's better than no writing!!

Thanks for taking the time to read and comment as I get moving again in writing and creating... (it might just benefit you at the end of our time this month)
