I did a piece of Polished Stone, then stamped the pansy group all over with Distress Black Soot and clear embossed.

Dawn,
I just found the happy pansies. I don't know how I missed them. They make me very happy. And, they make me sad, because I don't have them! lol

How much would you charge to do a whole wall in my dining room with them? MUWHAHAHAHAHAHA! j/k

I would love that!

Have a blessed weekend, my friend.
He IS Able,
Traci S.
