Hopes for Peace and Kindness!

There's something that's so endearing about cherubs that when I saw Stampendous' new release, I knew I had to have them all! The fabulous Holiday Wishes Perfectly Clear™ stamps gave me the perfect sentiment and the Cling Winter Blizzard furnished the perfect background!
