DT StampARTic: Tea Lindström

StampARTic has visited Tea Lindström in Sweden,
a (hold on) 12 year old stamp designer!!!!!
I was amazed when I first heard about her.
She has generously sent us all one stamp each to play with,
and I am still stunned by her talent!
12 year old... !!!!

I got this adorable little cat, playing with a butterfly.
I have a little daughter that has lots of girlfriends, and this image is perfect on birthday cards for them.
