You don't always have to go in debt...

...to enjoy your stamping craft!
I purchased the stamp, papers and pencils all on sale for this card.


The base card and all the colors  came from a set of textured card stock that I bought at Michael's when they had their 5 card stock packs for $10.00 sale.
The white card stock is linen that I also bought at the sale.
Onto the inside of the blue base card I applied a piece of white and stamped the "Happy Easter" from Unity Stamp Company's "Pretty Easter Find" set which I bought for 40% off, they are always having sales, using my Adirondack slate ink (you could use any grey ink pad for this).
On another piece of white card stock I stamped the image from the Unity Stamp Company's set with the same ink.
I then colored the image with Crayola pencils, bought these with a 50% off coupon at Michael's.
I used my tape runner, bought on sale, to tape the pieces onto the card front...but you could use a glue stick, always on sale at back to school time.
A simple, easy, quick and inexpensive greeting for someone which means more because you made it!
