Sally's go to stamp


Good morning, it's time for our mid month inspirational post where the DT are offered a challenge, this time it's Sally who starts off our new DT's theme of  'My go to stamp', I am really looking forward to seeing what each of the team come up with in the next few months.

So I will hand you over to Sally....................

My Go to stamp had to feature a tree, but which one?! After much thought I went for this one by Inkylicious.

 I have used it for Birthdays, Christmas, Father's day and sympathy cards. It is such a versatile stamp.




Thanks Sally, it's one of my favourites as well.
