A Garden of Zinnias!

I really love the way that Maria has designed the Kitchen Sink Zinnias so that the smaller one is a darker shade of the large zinnia. I promise you it has nothing to do with the way the stamps are inked and everything to do with Maria's amazing talent in designing the image. I love stamping these beautiful blossoms in every color imaginable! Hopefully you will enjoy them, too!

  14. That is a great sentiment... "scatter seeds of kindness everywhere you go." I love it...is that from the seed packet set? I have it...and it's soooo unused!
