I hope you had a nice Christmas. Ours was nice. We went to Austin to visit with our daughter who is home from Oman. I bought this Hero Arts background stamp. I used this as one of my shoe box cards. I tried it in red and did not like it. I decided to use this never before seen stamp pad called Spiced Marmalade. I bought it because I saw something done with this pad that I really liked and then forgot about it and now have no idea what that was all about. I do like the way this turned out.
