  1. Went and placed my order at Unity, needed some more of your stamps! I am in love with this stamp set and can't wait for it to be in my hands and inked. I love my gardens and always add antiques everywhere.When winter comes we have to store all the supplies. I love that you created these tags...thanks for sharing with us.

  2. I love your new stamps! I live in Phoenix, AZ and it's hard to keep an abundant garden here. So, I create flowers in my art journal and always try to add some vintage charm to the page. Thanks so much for sharing this with us!

    1. Carmen ...thank for you kind words. Oh, and I love you cacti. We don't have those!!!

  3. Love those new stamps! I just love them because it has just the perfect balance between nature and vintage (I think). Oh, and I love birds and butterflies.... ;)

  4. Loving these new stamps! such wonderful details on each one. Like a story!

  5. The new stamps are beautiful! One of my favorite things to do is gardening. I love it when everything is in full bloom.
    Shared :-)

  6. I love my garden and nature because of nature. I so love the sounds, the smell and seeing all the amazing things out there, bugs, birds, flowers, and even weeds. Some flowers on weeds are just so pretty and I leave an area au natural just to see them :-)

  7. Beautiful new stamps! I have a large perennial flower garden that includes over 80 different daylilies. I love my garden because of all the beautiful colors and it is my place to think and enjoy the birds, butterflies and the peacefulness!

  8. These stamps are so cute. They could be used in so many different projects.

  9. Ahh Susan.. these are awesome new stamps.. I can see them on bookmarks and atcs.. and painted papers.. super cool!!! I like OTHER PEOPLE's garden!! lol In all honesty.. if a flower grows in my yard.. it must be wild.. or some GNOMEY planting gang put some seeds out while I was sleeping!! So the ONLY time I enjoy a garden is when I admire someone elses.. or I create one in my own artwork.. :) I could live in a concrete jungle.. but as long as I have something to write, color, or even paint.. I will always have flowers and butterflies.. :)

  10. I might have to fight my mom over the birdcage one.. no really.. I WOULD fight her!!.. (just kidding) and those glasses are too cute!!

  11. Very nice stamps I like the flowers

  12. Totally LOVE the bird cage - am smitten with them all! Great release - off to check out the DT's work :)

  13. Gardening brings me and my husband so much pleasure and us time. We work together from planting the veggie garden, designing and maintaining our many flowers gardens to canning the harvest. I love creating garden junk and mosaics to decorate my gardens. Without gardens I would lose so many special treasures and times in my life. Your syams remind me of the feeling you can only get from playing in the sort or creating, I love them!

  14. I really like the details in your new stamps! I love gardening and nature simply because of the colorful and never-ending inspiration of LIFE! I marvel at the fact that we need plants just as much as they need us :) I also love admiring other people's gardens. Someday, I'd love to have my own maze garden! Now how cool would that be?!

  15. I like tags... & having stamps just for tags... Gotta love it!

  16. I love my garden because I can choose which beautiful flowers to grow. My garden is a reflection of what I love and beauty I wish to express. I really really live yournew stamps and hope I can win them so I can incorporate garden beauty into my art;) thanks so much xoxo
