Happy Winter Sampler
The very first stamp set I purchased many, many, many years ago was "Happy Winter." Funny thing is, it's still my favorite stamp set of all time! I love the snowman, I love the simple tree and the delicate snowflakes, and the greeting is perfect. This little stamp set has significant meaning to me because it all started here! I pulled this old stamp set out the other day and felt the urge to make a winter sampler with it. Here's what I came up with. Hope you like it! I will post the recipe soon, but I'm off in a mad dash to the Home for the Holidays Gift Market at the Merrell Center here in Katy, Texas today through Sunday where I have a booth to offer my little Happy Winter sampler for sale. All I could make were 30 samplers and I hope my little snowmen find good homes!
Okay - the dust has settled, so here's the recipe!
