Quaint cottage

Hi all! How is everyone? Well today has been super busy, in-between spending time and going out with my family, taking care of personal issues and such....I still was able to sneak in some fun crafting time as well.

You know, I rarely, if ever, go out of my way to buy stamps from a company that I am not familiar with, but every once-in-a-while, I will catch a stamp out of the corner of my eye....and then I immediately fall in love and say, "Ooh, I like it!!"

And this is exactly what happened with these stamps below, they are from Great Impressions, have never used them before, but they have the cutest, nature, gardening, and just quaint little spring time images:

Little cottage and chair

I saw a sample in the LSS and thought I'd make my own rendition of it, using the cottage, the cute little chair you see there, and the sentiment.

Lots and lots of coloring on these images too, which I love, always great for me to practice my coloring!
