A sketch, today's FS, and a thank you

Happy Sunday, everyone! I have to show you something my oldest daughter (aka "Peanut") drew up for me last night. She made me a picture of my screen name on SCS. How cool is that?? A bee....lounging on a peanut! I love the little smile on his face....kinda ornery, LOL!

Thank you, "Peanut." I LOVE it and I know you worked really hard on it. Your drawing talent amazes me! Mwah!

Did you know my SCS screen name is a combination of the nicknames I have for my daughters? Peanut is what I used to call my oldest daughter when she was little. She's 19 now so I haven't called her that in a while, but she'll always be my Peanut...no matter how old she gets. Bee is what I call my youngest daughter because her very first Halloween costume was a bumble bee. She's been my "Bee" ever since....maybe it's because she's always "buzzing" around too (3 years old).

Today's featured stamper on SCS is my friend Michelle (sf9erfan)! How totally exciting! Congratulations, Michelle!!!!!!!! Here's her card that I chose to CASE. I kept the same layout, floral theme, and ran my ribbon across the top of the card. I just used different stamps, satin ribbon, changed the colors, and added some crystals.

Recipe ~
Stamps: Papertrey Ink Garden of Life and Paper Tray, SU Hugs & Wishes
Paper: Papertrey White, PTI Berry Sorbet
Ink: Berry Sorbet, Old Olive
Accessories: Berry Sorbet Satin Ribbon, Swarovski Crystals


I also wanted to give a quick shout out to my friend, Silke (sparklegirl), who gave me an award on her blog yesterday!! That was an incredibly nice surprise. Thank you, Silke! I'll be sure to post a picture of the award in a few days or so. I have to put some thought into who I want to pass the award onto.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!!

What a fantastic drawing by your dd! I used to call my 11 yo peanut too....she is not such a peanut anymore. Your dd is very talented..you should have that made into a stamp for the back of your cards!
