Can you believe it?! I got to visit with another amazing stamper this week on my journeys through the United system!! This time, I stopped in Toronto, Canada and got to have lunch with the lovely Jennifer Brum. Now we got to meet before when she was in the DC area and our families went to one of the Air and Space Museums together. Yep….we share both flying and stamping as interests (at least Jen gets brought along on the flying since her boys are huge aviation fans). For all that my flying has been exhausting this week (6 days out in a row), my visit with Jen was a big bright spot!
Now to stamping. The incredibly talented Kim Singdahlsen is our sketch hostess at Freshly Made Sketches this week and she has this fun and unique challenge for us! You are going to have a ball with it!
I was tempted to go with flowers again this week but I decided to stay close to the sketch (mostly because of the time crunch and flying). I chose these prints from the retired Moonlight DSP (using up those scraps!) and punched circles with my 1-3/4″ Circle Punch. I attached them to a piece of regular Whisper White and ran them through the Big Shot with my Decorative Dots Embossing Folder (inlaid embossing). Then I took the panel and cut it out using my Stitched Rectangles die from Simon Says Stamps. The sentiment is cut from Blackberry Bliss card stock using the Greetings Thinlits and I added a button and some Baker’s Twine for a little more detail. Isn’t this fun?! I told you that you would love the sketch!
Well, I am home today (finally) and looking forward to making some things in the craft room this week. I miss it so much when I’m out and about! Now I have something super important to tell you before I let you go. Make sure you are following the FMS site and keeping track of our sketches. You may notice how close we are to a landmark number of sketches. Well, you can be sure we have a big and I mean BIG surprise coming to celebrate. Be ready! We are so excited that we are ready to party now (but we’ll have to wait too!). Look for more details in the upcoming weeks!
Now our lovely team of stampers has their usual great inspiration for you. Make sure you hop over and tell Kim how much you love her sketch and go check out the team projects. Can’t wait to see what you create with this one! Thanks so much for stopping in today. Back soon with more fun!
