journal page

here is a journal page made using one of my rubber stamps, called daisyhead sold through  the sentiment is so applicable to my life right now.  growing up i took so  many things for granted and never really stopped to truly revel in the wonder of my life.  i am truly abundant in so many ways and taking time to give gratitude is always one of my many blessings in a day.  today i am truly appreciative of all the moments i am given in my life.  i hope you find time to live each moment as a gift.

blog hop for stampotique

Welcome! You should have popped on over here from Gez's blog, but if you started out here, please check the list below and get in on the hop.
Have you been following Stampotique's blog hops the last few days?
Didn't you just LOVE all the new stamp designs?!  They are incredible in my honest opinion.

Today Stampotique is sharing the last artist - me.  I'm a newer artist who is making rubber stamps for all those journalers and mixed media artists out there. I'm also one of Stampotique's newest design team members. Are you ready to see some of my new images?  Each artist below has shown you their artwork which showcases one of my new images.

The image above is one of my new stamps.  I love that bird in her pocket.  I hope you love it, too.
Hop along with some of the design team today to see some of  new images.  Come back and let us know what some of your favorites are.  Stick with us until tomorrow and one of you might be rewarded with some goodies.

You'll want to start off your hop over at Kaz'sblog.

Thanks for stopping by to visit us today and you'll want to stop back by tomorrow for the design team blog hop with all the new releases.
