Black and white floral and FREE STAMPS

Isn't this card cute? I really love this black on white polkadot paper. I've had it for years, I bought like 10 sheets. I'm down to just the smallest scraps now. It's by Making Memories, has some weird red and pink flowers on the other side. The card is super simple. Just some Papertrey flowers peeking in and a sentiment, bit of ribbon and a border punch. Easy goes to Peasy. You know what else is Easy Goes to Peasy? Winning free stamps from me. Over the next month or so I'm going to be randomly giving away some stamps and sets. I did a clean out of my stamp room. Some stuff I sold. Some I'm going to just give away. Roniece got a pile last night.

Today I'm giving away this cute little Stampin' Up! set. (not the just perfect alpha, I thought I was doing that then realized Roniece took it last night! opps!) The little quote stamp on this says, "The greatest gift is a portion of thyself. -Ralph Waldo Emerson" There is a super cool silhouette flower, a negative image bird and a butterfly attacking a flower. There is almost no evidence of use on these stamps. I think I used them once. They might be from hostess rewards? I'm not sure. Anyhow one of the commentors on this post will be getting this in the mail. Anywhere in the world. I'll pick the winner sometime tomorrow.

What a pretty set of stamps! I just started stamping a few months ago and I love seeing some of the beautiful retired sets and the great cards made with them. I'm really enjoying The Shack and I'm just starting to find the blogs and other fantastic resources. Thanks for the inspiration.

These stamps are lovely - thank you so much for the chance to win them!

I adore the card too - I struggle to use black and white and not make it look dreary - and you have just shown me how. Thank you

That is the CUTEST stamp set. I don't recall seeing it before!! I'm not posting to win (my vote goes to Karen 'cause she's a newbie!!!) but I haven't stalked you in a while & didn't want you to think I'd forgotten you. Love you!!!

Your cards are great, but a stamp with an Emerson quote on it...C'mon, that's like eating icing from the container when no one is around. :o)
