Stamp On It–My Time To Mail

stampbuttonsmall_zps706156a0

WOW!!!! It is time for me to show my stamp, but before I do that I would like to thank Madame Samm of Sew We Quilt, who's always there to create exciting hops for all of us to get our creativity on and a big thank you to Thearica from Pig Tales and Quilts who’s cheering us on a keeping us in line.

Now as I was thinking about what kind of stamp I wanted to make I thought about me.

Felicia stamp

This would be a great stamp, don’t you think?  But this is not the stamp I made for the hop.

I was born and raised in the Nation Capital, Washington, D.C., so I wanted to put a little me in the stamp along with a little of D.C.

I found this great turtle with a cup of coffee, that I could not pass by since I am a collator of turtles and if you are new to my blog it is my symbol, my totem, my talisman, THE TURTLE.  I am slow when it come to getting quilting done, and as you know Congress is slow in everything they do.   I embroider my turtle on a pink star fabric the pink reminded me of the cherry blossoms  in the spring and the stars are so patriotic since we are only days away from the 4th of July.  I also drew out the Capital and that is a little quilt.  I think this stamp represent me just fine, don’t you?

Sorry we are having rainy weather, and I have been get home to late to get any good outside pictures.  Now it is time for you to visit the other ladies on this hop, who I know will have some great work of art to show you on stamp making.  Here is the list.

  9. Felicia! You crack me up with a stamp of your lovely face. I need to make one and send it to each of my 3 daughters - that would crack them up. But, seriously, your stamp of Washington DC is wonderful. I like the capitol up in the corner. Congress slow? How about paralyzed! Can you go smack them upside the head and get them to behave? Thanks for sharing today. Debby, just 20 miles from the Capitol!
