inspired stamps February Favorite Sailor

 This month we are celebrating our Inspired Stamps Favorite Stamp Sets with giveaways, stamp showcases, and lots more fun!  Be sure you check out the inspired stamps blog for all the details!  My choice this week is the His Little Ones Sailor.  I believe he appeals to me because when I was young, I had an older cousin who married a strong and handsome  Navy man (I was the flower girl in their wedding at age 4).  His stories of life on a ship sparked all sorts of images in my young mind and I thought he was just the most amazing man ever!  They celebrated their 40th anniversary a few years back and I was privileged to attend the party and I must say he is still a pretty great guy-he's now a college professor in his "civilian" life.

Anyway, isn't this the cutest little sailor?! He's also super easy to color in:)  Add a bit of color to his tie, shoes and eyes and then add a little shading to his hat and suit and you're done.  I chose to surround him with Stickled stars and a great scripture for anyone serving in harm's way.  This scripture is from another of my fave sets: Strength, it is full of encouraging  scriptures to use for imparting strength to those in need.

Be sure you check out the rest of the teams' blogs and say hello to our new team members Gaby and Anita!

I just found a photo with Sam in it!  I am the cute little girl in the middle:)  The other 2 girls are my sisters and we are at the zoo.  Fun times!
