Undefined Stamp Carving Kit

I was so excited when Stampin' Up! introduced this product a year ago.....My very first experience with Stamping was with handmade stamps in art Class in high school.....I still have my stamps I made...and the first few years Steven and I were married, I made our Christmas cards with my own linolium stamps!!!!  If you you need a specialty stamp that is not too intricate...this is the way to go!!!

I think these are from our October get together....I am really far behind...need to get these all posted as we are meeting again this weekend, and I haven't done November's yet!!!
