The stemcil is 6" x 6". They will be available soon in the Whimsy section of my online catalog. Leave a comment here and you may be chosen the lucky winner of this stamp and stencil set.

I love this card and just have to have the stamp and stencil! I love the focus on honeycombs lately - maybe it will bring focus to the plight of the bees. Their future is our future!
Michael - I have a ton of your stamps and I absolutely love them! This is no exception!

Another wonderful stamp and stencil to add to my Michael Strong collection. Please-- while you are trying to encourage Mother Nature to get with the program-- New Mexico really needs moisture.
