I took the rod, commandeered one of his carpentry pencils (it fit perfectly) and put through the middle of the rod, then took some ink and liberally applied to the spacer.
I then rolled over a piece of 8 1/2"X11" paper, scanned it in and made a block for my A2 card. I love the grid it created. I then created a new stamp with my "Mint" stamp maker for the word block on the right. Added some elements and a fun unexpected card. You just never know what will inspire. Happy Hump Day, hugs
