Thanks! Great for Father’s Day card.
Wow, I love them. Perfect for those male cards. I just bought a gray stamp pad, so I’ll be able to ink the edges. You posted this image at the perfect time, we’ll all be ready for Father’s Day. Thank you.

You’re welcome Susan and Bev. I’m happy to know you’ll be able to use these for your Father’s Day cards. Bev, I think your card(s) will be striking with the gray inked edges!
