How special you are...


As much as I fell in love with the Sweet Bee set from Impronte d'Autore, when I saw their new Ladybugs set they absolutely stole my heart! Between them and some other fun new stamps, I decided to splurge and treat myself by placing an order. I gotta say I was quite impressed with the shipping time, even though they were coming from Italy, I got them quicker than I do from some US companies. Which meant that when I sat down to get crafty yesterday I had new stamps to play with. Just like the Sweet Bees, I dug back into my older rubber stamps from Impronte and found this sweet Tulip Fairy to join the pair of Ladybugs that I had chosen to ink up. Even though she is called Tulip I thought her floral skirt looked a lot like the Lily of the Valley stamp that is also included in the Ladybugs set, so I colored her up to match. I think they make for a darling trio of friends and it's always satisfying when new stamps breathe new life into older favorites.  :)

Have a great weekend!

I was going to order some stamps from this company as I see the cute cards you make with them, but I can't figure out how much shipping would be- one time it looked like $60. Can you give me an idea of how much shipping is from Impronte d'Autore to the US?
Thanks and always love all of you cards, you work is amazing!
