Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “B” element will be featured in their post.10178117_10208292254205571_4929240357548789413_nIf you came from Stephanie-The Quilted Scrapper then you’re on the right track!

Thinking of You Card by Wendy Kessler
Beloved Bouquet Stamp Set (January 2016 SOTM)
Charlotte Paper Packet
Whisper Ink
Lagoon Ink
Quantrefoil Embossing Folder
Glacier Extra Thick Twine

B is for Beloved Bouquet (stamp set): I cannot believe how much I have used this stamp set.  I really only bought it because of the sentiments but I have definitely gotten my use out of the flower as well.  The two-step stamping makes details quick and easy!
