Opinions, please - What do you all think? :)

My friend Tammy and I LOVE the Create a Critter Cartridge and bought is as soon as it was released! So in the beginning of April we started saying that it's too bad we don't have many stamps that go with it - so I started making sentiments to print on my computer. Here are some of the early examples...

Fish bowl card - April 9th

Koala card - April 22nd

Panda card - May 2nd

Squirrel card - May 19th

Well, I started doing research on how to make your own stamps and realized the the machinery that you can buy is a little pricey and VERY time-consuming. So for the time being I decided that I would keep designing the stamps and save up to look for other options. Well, a month goes by and I am talking to my husband and expressing how disappointed I am that I haven't been able to start this little venture. We did some research and found a great company that is affordable and I went ahead and sent them the batch to start processing.

Now, here's my question... If the set had stamps that you didn't already have and you liked them would you be interested in purchasing them? They are clear photo polymer material, guaranteed not to yellow and they are made here in the USA. The set I have designed has the sentiments above plus 18 other phrases and three icons. If you are interesting in them I can post the image and set up to sell them either here or on Etsy. Otherwise, I will just try to sell them locally.

I am also working on a 2nd set if this one is well accepted.

Thanks for taking the time to read all of this - I would love to hear your opinions. :)
