The Fabulous Phrases Stamp Set and Flourish Thinlits Dies (ops I used the Paisley Framelits Die by mistake - but love how it turned out) are a huge investment that will pay off in the long run. This set contains both outside and inside saying. How often do you wish you had a greeting to stamp inside your card. This stamp set has 15 different greetings, plus a great filigree, flower and leaf.
A few weeks ago we visited one of my parent's best friends. They are both in the early to mid 90's. As we visited I was amazed at how well they were doing they seemed the fountain of youth. The question also popped into my head how much longer will I have them. My parents are both gone, spending time with their longtime friends makes me feel just a little bit closer to them.
It seems our lives that were once filled with weddings and baby showers are more often filled with funeral's of elderly family and friends. I am grateful to have this stamp set for all the occasions New Baby, Wedding, Sympathy, Thank You or even to send "Just a Note".
You will find this is one of those stamp sets you reach for every time you stamp!
