  4. That is such a cool stamp, I wish there was something similar of Norway! It's a stamp fit for so many occasions, miss you, wish you were here, any patriotic theme or occasion, travel,... you name it! The colors do look great together, a combo I've never used myself before!

  19. Great job with this color combo! I took one look and instantly thought 'definitely a challenge'....but you nailed it! And how about your perfectly stamped USA image? Not any easy task stamping an image as large as this...but you nailed this task as well! Love the bits of bling and the wee heart :)
