I think my stamp store owner must love me. See, I only live three miles away, and in good weather, I can even ride my cute pink scooter there (you know, stamps fit very nicely in the compact storage areas on a scooter!). I saw this stamp, oh, maybe three times in her store, until I went back specifically for it. I have nothing like this in my collection, and for some reason, I love it - had to have it. And I have nothing that I really had in mind for it. THIS is why my stamp store owner loves me. ;)

I usually try to check in with the weekly sketch challenge at SplitCoast Stampers, but I don't always make the time to do it. This week's sketch was so much fun, though, that I had to whip it up! This is a really unusual color combo for me, but I think I like it! My mom is going to cringe when she sees this, though - plain buttons irk her (me too, to be truthful), but I didn't have a lavender thread/DMC floss, so here they sit, bare. C'est la vie!

Check out the sketch if you'd like to try something fun. Be well!

Jennifer, I had to stop in and visit. I saw that you were selected as one of Karen Lockhart's favorite blogs. Congratulations that is great news! You definitely deserve it!

PS. Not sure if you remember, we met at her class at Angela's and were talking about blogs. I finally got mine up and running!

Take care!

Love the stamp Jenn and the coloring is so pretty! That's funny about the buttons. I'm just too darn lazy to string them most of time. I've learned to embrace my naked buttons! :)
