I’ve made myself a new rubber stamp for a new home card I wanted to make for my friend. I thought I’d make a batch of them. I might have to have a rethink about the writing for future batches as I’m not entirely happy with it on any of them, but I do like the top part of the design.

I decided to get back on the horse and have another go with the friendly plastic (I bought a stash of it so I kinda had to!)
