Stamp Review Crew: Thoughtful Branches










The Stamp Review Crew is featuring Thoughtful Branches today. It's perfect for a blog hop because the possibilities with that set are endless! You could easily play all day with this bundle of images and thinlits.  I kept it simple using just basic leaves and some dots.....which I actually think are meant to to cover one of the tree images.  I am looking forward to this hop myself to see what amazing things the team has created!  

If you have just come from Debra's wonderful site you are on track and ready to move on to see what amazing project my friend Mike Funke has made for you!











I used the sketch at Cas(e) this Sketch as the basis for my design.


Best Fishes.....PP305







Miss Emma was excited to welcome a new member to the family......her very own Beta fish named Blaze!  Unfortunately Blaze went belly up a few days after he arrived.  Emma insisted he go to the vet since he wasn't looking well.....for sure!  So Blaze got scooped out and Emma's dad headed back to the fish shop to "see the vet".......and to see if Blaze had a twin. I am happy to report that Blaze did indeed have a twin and "Blaze" is now back to swimming happily in his little tank........after receiving "medicine from the vet."  So how old do you think she will be when she figures out what really happened to Blaze?!??!





My super talented friend Nance has a great sketch for us at the Paper Players!  I used fish from Seaside Shore, a sentiment from Jar of Love and By the Shore DSP for my fishy scene.....I am thinking it will make a cute anniversary card!

Baby Bee.......FMS 246





These cute bees and their hive are actually from a set called Shooting Star. I stenciled the background using Scattered Straw Distress Ink and then colored the hive and bees with Zig Markers.  By masking off part of the sentiment  I can use this card to welcome a new little bee!



Rita's sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches is bee-utiful!
