A Treasures thank you

Awhile back, I decided to give Close To My Heart stamps another try ... you see in the past I bought some USED CTMH stamps on Ebay only to discover they were not properly cared for. I ended up throwing a good portion of the stamps away. Lesson learned do not buy USED clear stamps!

The stamp set used for this card is Treasures (D1375) and I really like this one. Unfortunately, at times some of the images included in CTMH stamp sets are too large for a A4 card and fit better on a scrapbook page so the card making buyer must be conscious of this detail. A detail that I was not thinking about when I bought this particular set. Nonetheless, here's the card I made using other images in the set.
