Lilacs are everywhere here in MN. I just got this stamp set and thought what a better way to break in my stamps!! Purple is my favorite color anyway! I wanted to try the explosion card that was part of the SCS tutorial a few weeks ago. I haven't had the chance to adorn the box with white organdy ribbon (yup, that's hidden in the garage somewhere too). Anyway, this set is really easy to use...no stampamajig required to line up the two-step stamps.
