Buddha


I just love finding a stamp set that I know I will be able to use to create cards for one of my boys. Andrew loves all things oriental. So, when I saw this set at Michaels I was kinda thrilled. But, to make it an even better day, I had a 40% off coupon, so I just knew this set was meant to be mine.

When I showed Andrew the set, he immediately zeroed in on the Buddha. My friend’s son had a Buddha tat on his stomach and Andrew told me I just had to make a card for him with this stamp.

This card just sort of came together on its own and fell into place. I love when that happens.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with all that your heart desires!
