May Release Countdown Teasers Day 1: Peaceful Plushies

27 April, 2020 6 comments Leave a comment

The countdown teasers kick off today and we would like to start by introducing our Guest Designer for May.

There are no adequate words to convey how utterly delighted we are to have the incredible Keeway Tsao guest designing this month.  Keeway is, in our humble opinion, simply the best there is in terms of talent and creativity.  She is also a lovely lady and we are over the moon, if not slightly astounded, to have her join us for the May countdown teasers.

There are six new stamp sets coming on the 1st of May and today we're introducing a stamp set called Peaceful Plushies.
