M is for..

You might think that I've chosen "Mother" as my word of the fortnight for the .Craft Barn Alphabet Blog challenge, but that would be wrong.  No, those worthy challenge-setters have decreed that the "M" word must begin with letters from the range MA-to ME.  So I've chosen "Maternal".  (I can be sneaky too!)

I love the image on this stamp.  It takes me back to the time when my boys (now grown up) were babies.  I don't often get the chance to use it, so I wasn't going to miss this opportunity.  Because it's so intricate, I didn't do much more than just stamp it in Wild Plum Archival ink, and I'm making no apology for the fact.  Sometimes the trick is knowing when to stop.

This is so beautiful the image brings to me the love I have for my little baby boy Ben that I lost a few years ago. I think of myself holding him just like in this image telling him how much I love him.
Thank you so much for sharing this it truly is stunning, are you able to tell me what the stamp is called and who it is by?
