Gina K. Designs - Illustrators Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to Karen's Creative Mess. :) 
And Day 2 of Gina K. Designs Illustrator Blog Hop! 
Today we are featuring two wonderful stamp sets,
The Illustrators are Beth Silakia & Claire Brennan
Beth has created such a fun set named after her daughter.
This time she has Karen Dolphin stamp set,
and it has some sweet ocean creatures in it along with so great greetings! 
Then Claire Brennan has made this Beautiful Lily Set.
It is a easy set to line up for triple stamping and the line art 
can be stamped with the others or stand alone! 
Claire's - Lovely Lilies is a fantastic set that can be used in so many different ways!
