I really need to win some of these amazing stamps. The florals are just stunning–I don’t think anyone does them better. And now my brain is overflowing with inspiration. I will probably leak most of it (hmmm….do they make depends for brain leaks?) but I am inspired nonetheless. Thank you. I have had a very nice creative break, now it’s back to cleaning the craft room.
