Freshly Made Sketches: Hello

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Jen Mitchell and here’s what I did with it!

FMS Hello

I think this bee is the most fabulously detailed bee that I've ever seen.  He's even daintier than he looks on this card because I added some sparkle on this wings (you might have to click on it to see it). I like the sparkle but it did darken the detail on his dainty wings.

I just got my new Stampin' Up order so be prepared to see more! It's been funny over the years because my Stampin' Up demonstrator and I would meet in my church parking lot when she had my order.  She'd hand a bag out her car window and I'd hand her an envelope of money.  One time her husband was along and commented that it was a darn good thing we were in a church parking lot because it all looked really shady.  Recently we have both moved so this time we met in a grocery store parking lot.  We were quite careful this past weekend (after dark) to get out of our cars, showing off our old lady selves in our comfy sweats and chat for awhile before making the exchange!!

Hope to see you playing along with us this week!
