Spinning A Yarn



I'm lying low for a few days this week, catching up on rest and a few other non-stamping interests and getting ahead on some upcoming projects. I'll be back in a day or two with something new, but in the meantime, here's one from the Fan Club archives. The gallery theme was Chick-Lit, and my inspiration, can you guess, was The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs.

I adore this Penny Black stamp, Spinning a Yarn, which was a gift from my sweet friend, Michelle Rodgers of Stamper's Dream. The image was watercolored with Stampin' Up re-inkers and a water brush.

Thanks for visiting!
