Carnations anyone

As far back as I can remember Carnations have been my favourite flower. My birthday is in January, carnations are January's flower, is there a connection, I don't know, lol! My absolute favourite colour of carnations is deep red, which is also the colour of a garnet, January's stone. Hmmm I think I see a pattern here. This is one of the last posts as designer for Clear Dollar Stamps, my term is ending... "sniff". So I saved the best for almost last!
