Love Quote Stamps

I'm not sure what I'm thinking when I buy so many "quote" stamps. Beyond appreciating the beautiful words and the fun of finding a matching imaging to go with it...... I find them less then functional as cards when trying to figure out who to give them to. But I love a good quote! Just something short and sweet to make you think or go, "awwww". (But not much good for Birthdays or Get Well - lol!!)

One of my favorite quotes is this beautiful one by Helen Keller. I thought this little Sugar Nellie was a great match for the words.

So, nothing fancy here, just some basic layering, spellbinder nestibilities, a little vellum and of course (as always)... coloured with Copic markers.
