How much fun it must be to be able to be the first to design with the new stamps. You are doing such a fantastic job. I love the red, black and white card with the greeting the middle. It is so pretty. The block grettings really make all the cards so special. Also your mug is just adorable. I love the way you used printed paper and put the "whipped cream" in the mug.
