Oh No! Don't use the "C" word yet!!!


I know what you're thinking....it's only August. You're right. But I had to tell the story of this stamp. Last year I wanted this stamp like crazy. Checked everywhere..no luck. Tried on ebay....it was going for crazy prices, like $30. So I gave up and thought about it as the one that got away. Fast forward to this summer. I get an email from Delta who either owns or distributes Rubber Stampede telling me that they are going to re-issue the stamp and did I want one. ABSOLUTELY! I do the credit card thing, wait 3 weeks and one day it comes in the mail. I'm in heaven. Had to make a card with it right away.
I also in this same week visited my local Michael's and yes they are putting out Christmas things. Lo and behold, there is MY stamp for $7.99 (same price I paid minus the shipping et al), I could have used a 40% off coupon!!! Oh well, I got my stamp and I'm happy. My daughter said I should have bought a dozen and sold them on ebay!!!!!!!!!!!
