    I absolutely adore the brushstroke stamps, the finished cards look stunning, and all look like they have been painted ‘freehand’, gorgeous watercolours. I love these samples by your DT, they always give me lots of inspiration. I am creating a card at the moment with the So Loved, Good Times and the Frames dies. My next creation will be with the Blossom Branch. I couldn’t create my cards without the inspiration of your superb Design Team. Lots of love from Patricia xx
