Sneak Peek #2 - Charlie Frolic

I love this whole line of "Charlie" stamps. This little set is called "Charlie Frolic". It is a set of 5 stamps...for a whopping $4.99! You get the horse image, along with a star (great for backgrounds), and three sayings (Giddy-up for you!, Happy Girthday!, Get well soon).

In particular, the thing I love about this Charlie image is his versatality. If you leave him on all four he's happily galloping along...if you set him up on his hind feet he's kicking up his heels and having fun!

Also shown in this sample is an image called "Hoofin It". It is a set of 1 for $4.99. This is a long thin image that CAN be used flat on a block OR you can buy the Rollograph wheel from the Clear Dollar Stamps site and wrap it around the wheel and roll it out. That's what I did. The great thing about these wheels is that you don't have to use stamps specifically made for the wheel. You can take any of your smaller Clear Dollar Stamps (or other acrylics I'm sure...but I haven't tried that) and place them on the wheel close together and roll them out!

Ok...let me share the sample...then I'll post the details...
