My favorite antique stamp

Hello everyone in blogland,

I love to use some of my old stamps on my cards.
It's not that I don't like new stamps (you can tell by my ever growing stash) but once in a while an old stamp just seems to fit!!! Especially one like this where the image looks very vintage.
I remember when I was a girl. I LOVED coloring books and paper dolls. This image looks even older than that, but in a way, it's not and it somehow reminds me of many hours spent oloring pages like this.

As I have mentioned before, I do a challenge with a friend and this time the letter to use is a U !!!
A U????? What do you do with a U????
I thought I wanted to do some kind of a critter, but after researching I just couldn't come up with anything but a UNICORN!!!  I don't happen to like unicorns!!!
So, back to the ho-hum word "UMBRELLA".  I know, not very interesting, but it is a U!!!
AND it just so happens that this is the only umbrella I have in my stash.

So here it is:

Those cheeks are pink.... somehow I couldn't get them to show up as pink!!!
Isn't she a cutie???? I just love her!!!!
I bought the stamp used about 10 yrs ago and have only used it a few times. But she''s still one of my favorites!!!

Here's the challenges I entered:  Bought my stamp used, about 10 yrs ago. Printed paper, texture on "hello" layers of Glossy Accents. Colored pens on girl. patterned paper anything goes relaxation... walking in the rain (my daughter and I have always enjoyed the rain, especially a warm summer rain!!!

So comes the end of my post.
Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed my vintage stamp.

Love & hugs,
