Adventures In Stamping: Stamping With Mash Plate 38
Our Sunday stamping challenge for the Facebook group, Adventures In Stamping, was to stamp with the theme of something toxic or poisonous. I was at a standstill with what to do. I googled poisonous plants and learned that parts of cherries are poisonous. So I thought that that would at least be a cute mani. While I was digging through my plates searching for the plate with the cherries on it, I found a plate with a spider on it. That brought back vivid memories of the four black widows we have killed in the last few years, and what I beleive to be a hobo spider that was on our porch just a few days ago. My poor husband. I just stood there freaking out. I never had a fear of spiders up until we started killing those black widows. So I figured today would be the best day to use this stamp because I will probablly never use it again.
