We are now in spring here in New Zealand and I cannot wait for the summer flowers to bloom. In the meantime I can dream of summer with this card featuring the stunning Hollyhock Garden collection from Heartfelt Creations. These beautiful stamps are just fabulous to colour in. Great for the colourist!
