We have been driving to the foothills east of the central California suburb where we live, far from the chaos of the cul-de-sac, close to nature. Oak trees and wildflowers grow naturally here. Early fall temperatures have been so pleasant.
Fellowship with family adds to the sweetness of these trips. And a memory I keep is the deer, who stand and and look at me as I pause to admire them . . .
. . . Just like this beautiful stamp set. . . that I was reminded of, and would eventually purchase. It was only a matter of time.
The set includes stamps of three adorable animals, each looking so profoundly peaceful, as well as accent stamps of trees, bushes, and grass.
I have been using the Subtle Embossing folder quite often. It adds interest without detracting from the focal point, which is the realistic images of these beautiful animals.
Memories are sweet, and so is this Nature’s Beauty set, which sends my thoughts to the warm California afternoons of hiking through the brush, and pausing near streams, and just enjoying the day.
For every set purchased, Stampin’ Up! will donate $3 to Mental Health Organizations. I think that is wonderful. And this is the perfect set to promote health and wellness of the mind and heart. Do you agree? Please leave a comment. I really do enjoy hearing your thoughts.
