Don't be! These are some of my favorite stencils to play with. They are great for adding an accent of color - especially when used with a large background stamp.
Stop in Tuesday between 12 & 2, and let Angela show you how much fun these are. You'll be amazed by how quick and easy and - even more importantly - versatile - these stencils are to use!!!!
