If QKR Stampede Stamps aren't exactly what you are looking for, Don't miss out on the sister companies: Eureka Stamps,  Biblical Impressions Rubber Stamps, or the newest addition; Alluring Impressions.

Wings & Willows
Hello, I'm Rebecca from Wings & Willows. I am a happy wife and mama to 3 sweet girls. The hubby and I live in the country along with an assortment of animals. In my small amount of spare time, I love to blog about our life and share some new (and free) stamps that I've created. (As well as fill you in on sales in the shop!) My digital stamps definitely are a reflection of the day-to-day things that go on at home. I've been doodling for the past 30-ish years, so it's great to share my art with friends! In addition to that, I paint fingerprint trees. Just think of them as a fun and unique alternative to guest books. I would love for you to take a peek at my shops. (Or drop a line in my blog! I love to hear from you!) Thanks! Becca  :)

Offering One (1) $15.00 Gift Certificate to the store!

TIME for some Color Inspiration ...

Please join us in Welcoming our Guest Designer this week!!

I live in Wisconsin and am married to a sweet man who is my biggest fan and a great encourager. I’m very blessed. In 1997, I was introduced to rubber stamps and was hooked. I joined a rubber stamp company as a demonstrator in 2004, which ended in 2011 when they went out of business. Since then, I discovered digital images and fell in love once again. So many stamp companies, so little time - LOL!

I keep a long list of birthdays, anniversaries and try to send cards for major holidays too. Plus, I started a card ministry at my church 3 years ago. I send monthly cards to the homebound, a little bit of encouragement to those who may not have a lot of family left. Seems like I’m always making a card for someone.  :D
