Before scrolling….take a moment to watch this.
Pretty powerful eh? This is the song I think of every time I see this Stampin Up! Godspeed stamp on cards that come in. And now….I finally own a Godspeed set of my own! I looked for this for ages, but wasn’t willing to pay scalpers prices on ebay; I did get to make a card or two from it years back due to the generosity of my friend Glinda; she was a dear friend and dedicated cardmaker back when we were a weeeee teeny organization. She stamped a few to send me once in a while. And then….she passed away. Not only was I out a friend…I was without my ‘fix’ for this stamp. And one day I got a text from shipper Kris – she had seen Pam post on her FB wall that she had two of these and wanted to sell one. I snapped it up!
Now as much as I love it – I do have an issue with the set. The sentiment and other stamps….well, they’re more appropriate for AnyHero mail. But this image that I love? This is one that a guy would send home, isn’t it? Why would we use it for AnyHero cards….? To tell them they should be writing home? lol. Well…..anyway, there’s my gripe. I used a Miss You sentiment from SRM instead. And am hoping it’s written home on by a hero serving on a far out base, seeing this picture and writing inside, “It’s me, honey. I miss you.”
