TCM Preview: Lovely Birds


Hi there!

It's preview week for the new The Craft's Meow stamp sets soon to be released on July 1st!  I had such a fun time preparing for this release - just wait until you see what the entire team has been creating with these fun stamp sets!  You're going to be so inspired!!

The first stamp set we're showcasing is illustrated by Nina Brackett and is called Lovely Birds.  My husband and daughter LOVE watching and identifying the birds in our backyard.  It's pretty cute how Ashley knows most species of birds and if we aren't sure of their names, we'll look in our bird book or search online to see and she always remembers their names and usually has an interesting little tidbit about them.  I was thinking of the cardinal family that we have in our backyard when I created this card ...

Ink: Versafine black; Distress
