Isn't that lemon image amazing?! I first saw these incredible stamps in the Impression Obsession booth at CHA and immediately fell in love. While blurfing last week, I visited Julie Koerber's blog (which is gorgeous, by the way -- be sure to check her stuff out) and was reminded that I had some shopping to do. And now, one week later -- behold! This is just one of several lemon images that I *had* to have. I love lemon-flavored anything -- lemon drops, lemon meringue pie, lemon squares, Limoncello, etc. One Mother's Day, Truman even gave me a great cookbook called Luscious Lemon Desserts; yum! And the motto "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade" is definitely one of guiding principles. So me and these lemon stamps? A match made in lemon heaven!
This week, Jen's Sketch For You To Try has a circular focus. You'll find the sketch and samples by Jen and her March Guest Designer, Joanne Basile, on Jen's blog. And be sure to visit Shannan, Susan, and Amy to see their interpretations. My Saturday morning ritual is playing with this sketch first thing in the a.m., posting it here, and then racing to the rest of the gals' blogs to see what they've done. I'd love to see what you do with this sketch, too, so if you have a chance to play with it and upload it to your SCS gallery, be sure to use "SFYTT" as one of your keywords.
Hopefully the ability to leave comments here has been restored or will be shortly. I'm sure it will be soon because Typepad typically has really good customer service. I know thousands of you are chomping at the bit to type all sorts of compliments to me, and heaven knows I'm in the mood to read them.
In the meantime, I've got plenty to do -- next week is going to be a busy one. On Tuesday: The Cat's Pajamas starts a fun new feature I think you're all going to enjoy, I get to share my BIG news (!), and I've got some April Fools' pranks to pull (imagine that...). And on Wednesday, there's the My Favorite Things New Release Cocktail Party. So much stamping goodness in one week; I don't know if I'll be able to stand it!!
