The May Release is Coming

don't you just love that charm
 This is my favorite time of the month. when Paper Pretties shows off the new stamp sets.  Today's set is "Handy Man".   When you're finished here you have to pop over to Paper Pretties to see what the rest of the design team members have made with this set.  

I know you need more masculine stamps.  I'm betting that you've got at least 25 girly stamps for every masculine stamp you've got.  So put this set on your shopping list.  This is a must have.  Did you just ask "Why"  Well I'll tell you.  First of all there are three fabulous images, the tool box, a bar-b-que and a lawn mower.  Secondly, there's lots of sentiments that can be used for birthdays, Father's Day (not that far away, hint, hint) or little love notes.  Thirdly, the images are cute and fun, and you'll like working with them as much as the men in your life will love receiving the treasure you make with them. 

don't forget the inside

Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties "Handy Man"
