Today is my middle brother’s birthday and for the background, I used this wonderful stamp of an old Almanac page. It shows the actual month and year of his birth. What a serendipitous find that was! The dates below the heading may be too small to see, but the listing for the 4th shows that he was born on a Wednesday . . .
I used one of Tim’s stencils to get the aged/splotchy look for the page. It was the maiden voyage for my new mini ink pads and applicators and I am ever so glad I invested in these wonderful, smaller-sized tools. They are so much easier to use in small spaces . . .
