Congratulations on the release! I stumbled across your stamps just the other day and love them. I immediately ordered 4 sets. I was browsing around wondering why I couldn't find any blog posts or sample cards for 3 of those sets - now I know it's because you hadn't 'officially' released them yet! I'm not usually so quick to order when I stumble on a site, but I couldn't resist your great designs.
