DELIGHTFUL stamps and cards to introduce them!
I’m INSPIRED and flooded with memories of when I first moved away from home to study at University … a special treat I got myself each week from the local market was a bunch of carnations, sometimes ‘spray’, sometimes ‘sim’, either way they were beautiful and reminded me of my Mum’s and Grandma’s gardens :)
… feel the need to go shopping and BUILD some flowers around these memories!
