Paper and Ink Imaginings

What the Flock Flamingo Card

I was gifted some new stamps & dies for my birthday (Offspring3 looks out for me – she feeds my crafting habit!), and these flamingos were in the group.

This sentiment made me giggle. I do remember hearing, “let’s get the flock out of here” around the house, maybe in my teens. My Dad is a fan of a play on words.
