TAMARA'S SKETCH CHALLENGE - AND BACK TO MY ROOTS!

Hey, it's that time again - another fabulous sketch from Tamara!! I swear, I just love doing these, it is pure joy for me to do these - her sketches are just awesome! And, I did go back to my Stampin' Up! roots....can't stray too much! So, here is my take on the sketch! I used one of my favorite stamp sets which is the Stitched Exotics - just adore these stamps! And, the sentiment is from the new Fresh Cuts stamp set, which I use a lot because I LOVE it!! Make sure you all head on over to Tamara's site to check out what the other talented ladies did for this sketch, and, if you try your hand at this one, upload it and provide the link so we can all see!! I will leave you with the recipe - off to do some shopping with my oldest since he has to leave early Saturday morning and head back to Annapolis for his summer cruise....*sniff, sniff*. I will be a blubbering mess I am sure, I already miss him just thinking about it and I know I don't get to see him again until December which will just about do me in! I don't know why people think it is soooo great when their kids move out, I want mine to move back in!!!!! So, off to get him some shoes and other necessities he needs - at least I can still do small things for him, it makes me feel needed! So, until tomorrow!! Smooches!
