Sometime the third time really is the charm

Sometimes things just keep going wrong.  The first time I colored this stamp I managed to pick up dried ink bits (red) from my marker when I turned the oval over to put adhesive on it.  (I’ve been meaning to clean my markers, but I just haven’t gotten around to it  ).  The second time I somehow ended up with ink on the Bottom of my stamp positioner.  The image was all colored, and then I decided that I wanted to add the sentiment on the same oval.  BIG black smears over the finished piece.    The third time I managed not to get any stray bits of color where I didn’t want them.  Sigh of relief!   I used a Unity stamp and the current sketch from Friday Sketch Challenge.
