A New Release from I Brake For Stamps!

Today I wanted to share one of the wonderful new releases with you.  It is called Bird and Blossom Post.  You can find it at the IBFS store as a single stamp, or in the Beloved and Postage Sheet.  They are all beautiful collage stamps! 

I used the Ink, Spray & Smash Technique on Glossy White paper and then stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  The sentiment is from Penguins and More. All stamps are by I Brake For Stamps! Love 'em! You can get 10% off by using this code: SAVE10JUDY

And now for a "Joy." You can read about my 100 Joys here. Today is #15.  This past weekend my husband and daughter traveled to Chicago for the National Unified Auditions for undergraduate B.F.A. programs in theatre. She had two auditions scheduled, and also did a walk-in audition.  She had to have two prepared monologues of different types and also a song prepared to sing a capella. Anyway, they went really well. In fact, she impressed one school so much they accepted her on the spot! She will travel to North Carolina for two more auditions next week, and then we will see what happens! I am proud of her! 

Thanks for stopping by today!
