Donna's instructions may be found by following the link, above, to Dave's Memory Box blog, Outside The Box. Check it out ~ she used Distress Markers to color directly on the stamp; a tried and true technique that always looks great.
One of the new saying stamps from Memory Box is the one below. It is a combo stamp, meaning it's two stamps for the price of one (love that!). The little flower is on the side of the wood mount. I can only hope the old saying is true, for if today is the test of it...we'll be blooming like crazy in May!
