Lili of the Valley Easter/Spring Special

Lili of the Valley have a done us crafters a favour and are selling some bunny themed stamps which were previously not in stock just in time for Easter. Such cute little images that can only make you smile and think of spring, talking of spring my Daffodils have been out ages and are still going strong.
I am going to use the Little Claire wavy sheep stamp to make a spring birthday card so take a look at their web site too if you are internet shopping, and of course I will put it on here when it is made.
