Carved stamps!

 I have been a stamp lover for a long time, I don`t know what it
is but I have to have every design I see in the stores and it can be 
quite an expensive obsession!  

So a few years a go I decided to make my own and it`s 
been a slow journey and I keep learning and finding things about it, 
it`s a hard job and takes a lot of precision and care but it`s worth it!

I have been practicing for a long time now and my collection keeps growing!
I will never have enough I think!  Here are a few with elements I love...

Hours of fun play with them, can you tell?

This bellow are my first stamps to be offered for sale in my Etsy shop, I hope, dream 
and wish they sell well, I think they are pretty good and cute! Please wish me luck!!!

This little guy bellow  is so cute I can`t stand it!  
Don`t you think he`s adorable!

This flower has two sides, I like making a different design in both sides and I love
the frame! It really feels good when you create something original doesn`t it?

I am having a give away over my facebook page, two prints of my original paintings
will be given this next June 6th and you are invited to join and write a comment here
so I can count you in the draw!  Please like my page while you are there, I need all
the love I can get and you will be appreciated and loved back! ;D
