Relax! A Katkin Krafts Kat Kard

Greetings! I was swamped with social-family-peopley stuff for almost an entire week, so I'm late with my weekly post for Topflight Stamps. Luckily, the lovely Cornelia switched days with me which relieved the pressure. Whew!

This week the Topflight Stamps is showcasing Katkin Krafts' wonderful stamps.  Being me, I had to get the Just Chillin' Clear Photopolymer Stamp Set because it features a zen boho cat, some gorgeous flowers, and a really great sentiment (which I didn't use).
