Stamp Review Crew: Butterfly Gala

The Stamp Review Crew is featuring Butterfly Gala this week.  It is a set with endless possibilities which you probably already know - especially if you have been through this hop!  I am always amazed how we all use the same stamp set and no two creations are ever alike!  So if you have this stamp set I hope we have given you some great ideas!

In the meantime there are no butterflies to be seen around here.  So Emma's great idea was to go tubing at a nearby mountain - the perfect winter day!

The sketch at Fab Friday was the basis of my design today.


Technically I am the last stop in the hop but if you missed Charlet's wonderful work head back there......

If you missed our lead off designer Dawn Tidd make sure you stop by and see her creative designs!

Stamp Set:  Butterfly Gala
Ink: Memento Black, Gorgeous Grape, Grapefruit Grove, Lucky Limeade
Paper: Whisper White, Gorgeous Grape, Grapefruit Grove, Botanical Butterfly DSP

Happy Bee-day!

I love the simple sketch at Cas(e) this Sketch this week and decided to make a Bee My Valentine card......and somehow I ended up with a Happy Bee-day card.  I just couldn't make the hearts and bees work together!  But Happy Valentine's Day anyway!

Since it was a retro sketch I pulled out a retired  hostess set called Pun Intended!

Ready, Set, Snow......FMS375


There is an awful lot of white stuff in the air and on the ground these days so I probably shouldn't ask for more!  As I type this it is night and so quiet outside - the snow is still falling - not a car on the street!  I love that wintry quiet!

Cecile's sketch is fun!  I used the tree and the bunny as my triangular shapes but feelfree to put your own spin on it~!  Join us at Freshly Made Sketches!
