Garden Collage

This set is a old but favorite. I love pictorial stamps the make me feel so artistic. When all we have to do is water color and wall - ah!  I know you might be thinking? Again with the in-colors. You are just going to have to put up with it until there all gone. I will be ordering more on my next demo order.(he he) I am off to Ikea today to buy grown up toys...  Ya Ikea!! it's only about 12 mins away...
