Hello everyone!   I am excited to share with you what I created
using this wonderful Holiday stamp I  received in the mail!
I couldn't take  my eyes off it and just had to ink it up and create this card for you!
I used a beautiful clear stamp called Poinsettias by Penny Johnson (Stampavie).
I absolutely love this stamp.   The fact that it is clear makes perfect
positioning a breeze!     I am looking forward to using this stamp
for many Holiday projects!
