This special offer is offered by myself not Stampin'Up! It cannot be combined with any other Special Offer or as part of your Stamper's 10/Virtual hostess commitments. Thank you for understanding xx
Here's a sweet sample I have made for one the swaps I mentioned earlier. It is from the wonderful set Happy Moments and I simply adore this little birdcage stamp.

Isn't it sweet? I kept it very simple and used a stricking clasic combo. Real red Basic Black and Whisper White with a bit of black gingham. Now before you look to close can I just say that this one didn't make it into the swap, I didn't used my SAMJ so my stamped sentiment isn't straight, needless to say I will keep this one for myself LOL.
I have inked the stamp using the markers and I stamped the hanging thread from the Tree Trimmings set. This has to be my fave stamp from the set, LOVE IT>
If you want to see the rest of the sets on offer please go here.
Don't forget to place an order just email me at telemech01@aol.com. Hugs Monica xxx
