Feeling a little Witchy???

Are you starting to think about fall? How about all the cute little Halloween stamps? Well, I sure am!! This week I have had five adorable witch images submitted to me for stamps. Each one unique in its own way, and all of them equally sweet. So I am going to share a little sneak peek. I can't show you the whole image YET! Oh no, that would be too easy. I want to wait until I have a few cards made, and the stamps on there way.

I expect to have my Halloween Stamps in stock in about 3 weeks. One can never be too witchy, right? So watch for them to be set up for preorder in the next week or two. HERE. So without further ado here is your peek.

Please see last post for information on applying for The Pixie Cottage Design Team.
