The Pedigree of Honey

It's challenge time again over at Serendipity Stamps and this week we are combining a sketch (see below) with a simple card focused around one of the quotation stamps from Serendipity's amazing selection. It was hard to narrow it down, but I love the one I finally chose. It's called the Pedigree of Honey and it's by Emily Dickinson. I also added a couple images of this cute little buzzer. I mean really, what would a quote about honey be without a bee?

I have had this "Willow Bee" patterned paper from Nikki Sivils for quite a while and what better project to use it on! It worked perfectly.

Serendipity Stamps has some exciting news too. They are celebrating the Grand Opening of their newly designed website and online store and for a limited time, Mary is offering free shipping on any order of $10 or more. You can't beat that!

Be sure and visit Amy, Anya, Lynda and Jenny to see what quote caught their fancy!

The Challenge: Create a card for a teacher or coach

The solution: Take this awesome stamp from Serendipity Stamps and color it with Copic Markers, add some beautiful Cappella patterned paper from Basic Grey, dig out my Nestabilities and Fiskars Threading Water punch, pick the perfect Stampin' Up rub-on and top it off with some buttons tied with twine.

Here's to teachers everywhere who give of themselves everyday to make a difference in children's lives. They have one of the toughest and often thankless jobs out there and they inspired me to love the process of learning, to better myself, to get lost in a book and to shoot for the stars!

Visit Amy, Anya, Lynda and Jenny to view their creations!
