Already saw this on SCS and left a comment, but it is sooooo cute! Thanks for leaving comment on my blog....I needed the encouragement. I ended up ordering 15 stamps from HM last week. Whew! That's a ton, but I love them and have decided to incorporate them into the Sunday School curriculum I'm developing for the 2 and 3 year-olds at our church. I'm really excited about doing this. Hence I ordered the last 5 yesterday as I was putting it all together. I must get in on this challenge, so I'm glad I found you. Great website!
