Tuesday Tag Challenge #8 -- Stamp Away!

There's a special inspiration for my challenge tag this week. You can read more about it at the end of this post. But the challenge I am posting is one that calls for you to stamp away! That is, use only stamps and ink. No background papers, embellishments, etc. But the theme can be anything you'd like.
Link back here so I can come and see what you've created!


Now for my inspiration for this tag: I am getting very excited about a special trip I'll be taking in October. I am going on Tim Holtz' stamping cruise to Mexico! I am so excited!!
Another special part of the trip is my bunk mate will be THIS stamper/collector of all things. And we will be traveling with THIS stamper/computer genius and her hubby as well!
