WSC88: happy B-day


that it shall never come again is what makes life so sweet – emily dickinson

Weekend Sketch Challenge time. Jenn handed out a darling sketch last night. I was excited to actually stamp with…wait for it…more than one color of ink pad. Can you believe it? Espresso and Latte ink. 🙂 I know – life on the wild side.

One of the things I miss about doing design team work is chatting regularly with my friend, Julia. She’s just as busy as ever, and I love what she’s been doing with the Rummage Bin line from CHF.  This set is the bees-knees.  The sentiment is one of several from the set Ornamental Beauties, also Rummage Bin.


More subtle  coloring and a little clear glaze accent on the bee bodies.

More beautiful samples if you stop by and see Beate, Charmaine, Jenn and sweet Sharon.
