I have been a fan of their digital images . I recently got a stamp set called Brrr! from them which is available at http://stores.ajillianvancedesign.com/. I love how crisp lines are when images are stamped. They are quite thin lines and are lovely to color with markers.

Finally summer is over in midwest. Its now time to work on christmas card.  Yippee ! This is my first post on this year’s christmas cards.

I ve made a few cards with this Brrr set . Its a cute little set with two penguins and its winter accesories.
