Sunday's FS102 on Tuesday!

I seem to consistently be a day late and dollar short these days when it comes to keeping up with the goings-on in the blogger world of stampers and over at SCS, so the fact that I just tuned in to see that Lori Craig/stamp_momma was Featured Stamper #102 on Sunday should come as no big surprise. What is a big deal though is this "stamp_momma lady"! Although I've never met her, I can just tell what a warm and wonderful lady she is from visiting her blog and seeing the things she's doing here and there as well as the swell comments she leaves me! Go, see for yourselves what I'm chattin' about: check her out her blog or her SCS gallery and see this wonder!

To play along with the FS challenge, you choose a card from said person's gallery and CASE it with a few changes, whether it be colors, stamps, embellishments, etc.. Well, in this case there were two of Lori's cards that tripped my trigger, so I'll give links to both.

Inspiration card #1
Inspiration card #2

I used the same stamp set as card #2 and the same layout as card #1, using different colors, papers and embellishments. I also stitched a bit of red thread around the perimeter to pull in the red color of the heart in "honey". Ranger Stickles (Diamond) were used in the wings and the heart for a little extra sparkle, cause these two bees are in love and 'cause Lori did that in her card (#1)! The images are watercolored with reinkers and a brush adding sponging on the edges to tone everything down and give it a little shabby love. The trio of heart brads replace the dew drops in Lori's card (#2 in case you're keeping track!).

I had a great time perusing Lori's gallery and I always love to stop by her blog, so if you're looking for a challenge or just some great eye candy and down to earth chatter, be sure to stop by, see her and play along: Featured Stamper 102 Challenge.
