Wonderous Wreath - Fall

Absolutely loving this stamp bundle.  I never would have thought this would turn out to be one of my favorite stamp sets, but when I started seeing the possibilities this has become one of my favorites.  I hope this stays around for a very long time.

Wonderous Wreath

This is one of the most versatile stamp and framelit sets.  At first glance, you would only think Christmas.  On closer examination you would realize as I have, there are so many different ways to use this set.  I have been looking around on Interest and I have found some wonderful samples. I will be posting cards made with this set over the next couple of days.
