Thanks, Julee....

....for providing the perfect sketch at Mojo Monday today!
I had a very busy and exhausting weekend working at the Stamp, Scrap, Art Tour Show in Westminster, Maryland.
Before I opened out Make & Table on Sunday morning, I made a quick circuit around the show looking for stitched edge dies.  They really catch my eye when I see people using them on their cards.  I was surprised that none of the regular vendors had them.  Luckily, I found a small set of stitched dies and matching stamps at a new booth of Paper Sweeties products, my only purchase at the show. And Julee's sketch today gave me an excuse to use the tag and bow dies, or Sweet Cuts as they are referred to in the Paper Sweeties store, and stamps. 
Tag and Bow stamps are by Paper Sweeties.
Butterfly stamp is CTMH.
Sentiment is Taylored Expressions.

My tea cup is empty.
It is a beautiful fall day today and my DH's birthday.  I think I'll go see if he'd like to go for a walk.  I hear chain saws running somewhere in the neighborhood, and I'm curious to see who is cutting down what.
