Cozy Cottage Host Reward Stamp Set

One of the new host reward stamp sets in the 2018 Occasions catalogue is "Cozy Cottage". Oh my gosh,these stamps are beautiful. I think I am extra partial to the "Cozy Cottage" stamp set because it reminds me of the couple of times I'd visited England. I fell in love with the English countryside; the quaint little towns and villages, and the charm and history everywhere you went.

And let's not forget the grass-thatched cottages (be still my heart...). I have always been drawn to the old fashioned English gardens and country homes and can imagine myself enjoying a cup of tea amongst the foxglove, hollyhocks and the fragant old roses. One of my favourite places in England is Dunster Village (Somerset), which is where I took the above photo. I also fell in love with New Forest - it's not uncommon to see cottages similar to the images in our new stamp set in both these areas. As you can probably tell, I had many lovely memories floating through my head as I created this card:

  1. Love watching you fill in the Cozy Cottage. The moment I saw that it was coming out in this catty as a Host gift, I knew I HAD to have it.
    I will use my water pencils when I colour them or my markers.
    I especially love that you popped up the cottage itself.
    Absolutely Beautiful card!

  2. Thanks for the video - loved watching!
