Make a Wish

Hi Everyone,
I recently came across these gorgeous stamps from Tiddly Inks.
It is the 'Wryn and Friends' collection. The Wryn character is based on the things Christy's only daughter says and does. She is a delightful mix of a tomboy and princess with her.
When I saw these images, of course I just had to have them.
