Stamp Off Shooting Star Honeybees

Hey stamping friends.  Susan, Buffy and I
are here right on schedule, for another Stamp Off Challenge.
This week we are doing a sketch challenge.  I think
that is our favorite kind of challenge, although I
don't mean to speak for the other lovely ladies!
This is such a difficult time of the year, because
some spectacular sets will retire, including Shooting
Star on page 91.  I got, and love this set because
a number of the sentiments remind me of my Dad,
who passed in 2012.  He used to call his kids honeybees,
 so it is very sentimental.
"As usual", I used the Urban Underground Specialty
Designer Series Paper, which is now long gone.
It worked perfectly with the honeybee theme,
given it's black and Delightful Dijon color combinations.
Layers were created with the Stitched Shapes Framelits
Dies, and Layering Circles Framelits on page 193 of
the current catalog.   Both sets of Framelits will carry
over to the 2017-18 catalog, due out June 1st.
Now please click on over to see the wonderful
sketch challenge projects offered by Miss Buffy
and Miss Susan!  I love those ladies!
