Putting my stamp on it!

 My California Parents are both retired from the US Postal Service, so when I saw the announcement for this hop, I had to jump on board. Then I was thinking-"what in the world have I gotten myself into? I don't know what to make." I started brainstorming and writing all sorts of things down- how do *I* put my stamp on things?  All I ended up with was a couple of pages of words describing me, but nothing was clicking. 

Then I went to my sister's to babysit her kidlets. The kids all came running, excited to see Aunt Bobbie and Miah said "I was hoping it was going to be you. We knew someone was coming to watch us, just not who.  Aunt Bobbie always makes the fun things more fun."  ( isn't he the sweetest thing?) 
Didya hear that click? :)

 here is my "FUN" stamp!

 Aunt Bobbie has nicknames for all the kidlets so I added fabric for each one. Abby is my Ladybug, Azariah is my AzA Rizah Roo, Elijah is my Lijasaurus, Miah is my sunshine, and Emma is my Bean 

 I used Carnival Fabric because carnivals are fun and there are hats and umbrellas on it (a few of my favorite things.) Just for "fun" I used a different stitch for each kidlet's section.
My Currency is 5cents because there are 5 kidlets represented on my stamp. My Country is USA.

yes that is a mentos geyser tube on my desk
I should tell you, I am an Activity Director at a nursing home- it is my job to have fun. If I am not having fun,  I am not doing my job. :) 

Dr Seuss was right!

 For my second stamp, I googled postage stamps and a Love stamp caught my eye- the theme for this stamp is LOVE- unconditional love. the background is the colors of the Wordless Book.  
 My heart was black with sin
until the Savior came in,
His precious blood I know has washed me 
White as snow
And in God's Word I'm told, I'll walk the streets of gold
to grow in Christ each day, I read my Bible and pray.

 My country is Heaven - this world is not my home!  Hebrews 11:16 says But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

My currency is the blood of Jesus- I Corinthians 6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's

My stamp is a FOREVER stamp John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish but have everlasting life. 

 I FMQd the word LOVE but wrote in the rest of the words, I should have used a different pen- I may cut off the edging and redo that part. I appliqued the background to some very stiff interfacing that I bought to make Madame Samm's indoor awning. I traced the edge of a small spool of thread for my "perforations"

 I plan on using my stamp for an object lesson in Kings Kids this year. 

Thank you for stopping by! be sure to check out the others who are joining me today- if you went in order Our fearless leader is next! I am sure she has lots of
in store for you!
Thanks to  Madame Samm and Thearica for another great hop!
