This card has two interesting aspects. First, the stamp was a RAK I got last year when I was BOOED on SCS. If you have never BOOED anyone, you really must join the fun. You give Halloween themed gifts to two people, and they each give to two people and so forth. Just Google it. You'll find signs, poems, and lots of ideas. Anyway, I know this stamp is just a dollar stamp or thereabouts, but it stamped beautifully, and I really like the image, I think he's cute. Sometimes you don't have to spend a lot to get a nice stamp.
The other sort of interesting dollar item here is the acrylic frame. I go shopping with my sister when I'm in Denver, and one of the places we frequent is Big Lots. Sometimes you can get some pretty good stuff. She recently got both of us a ton of Basic Gray stuff, and some really pretty flocked metallic Heidi Grace paper. Well, when I'm with my sister, sometimes I buy things I really have no idea how to use. She's really a very bad influence. I think it's pretty obvious which one of us is the good sister. Oh, but I digress. The frame. What the heck? You do know why they were at Big Lots, right? Most people were too smart to buy them, so they went to the great retail failure purgatory that is Big Lots. Fortunately for Big Lots, there are people like my little sister and I who are happy to waste our money on acrylic frames. We do our part. So, Frankenstein, or rather more accurately, the Creature, is under glass here.
