New Release Tuesday

He's so handsome with hints of spice,
Funny, charming, and oh so nice.
He's made of dough with a golden tan,
He's the closest thing to a perfect man!

There are all kinds of variations on this sweet poem, but I decided to play Dr. Frankenstein and create my own little monster. . .;) This week's new release at Bugaboo Stamps is Kitchen Ginger, and you can purchase our latest lovin'-from-the-oven collection here!
