Sweet Sunday Hello

I had so much fun with last week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, that I decided to give it a go again this week. Lately, I have been so inspired by all of the bright, new In-Colors and can't seem to stop using them! I did, however, try to lay off the "sparkle" a wee bit on this card (after my last couple of creations) . Some glitter DID find it's way onto the center of the flower on the tiny bee's wings, oops! How did THAT happen? Haha! I love that tiny bee, though. He's so stinkin' cute!! :)
I do have a question for all of you fellow stampers out there. Have you ever acquired a new and exciting product to your stamp/paper crafting "inventory" and had absolutely no idea of when you actually purchased the item? OK...maybe its just me. Maybe I have been doing too much shopping over the past 3 years. In my search for the perfect stamp to use for this sketch, I decided on the (retired) "It's a Stretch" set. When I pulled this one out to use, I seriously had NO RECOLLECTION of adding this stamp to my collection. Yet here it sits in my stamp studio, on my shelves, never inked up until TODAY. Hmmmmm...*insert "Twilight Zone" theme song here*'s just strange. Maybe it's some kind of sign that I should stop buying stamping supplies?! Eeek, that would be a SCARY thought! ;)
