You Have to Kiss a Lot of Men

Speaking of inspiration. check out this inspiration picture for this month's Paper Garden Projects Fourth (fifth?) Friday challenge. Makes you want to pick up some knitting needles.


You have till midnight (EST) of Friday, May 7, to play along over at Paper Garden Projects. In honor of Mother's Day, the prize is this lovely Rachelle Anne Miller Bundle of Joy stamp – how cute!




To jump-start my design, I found this now-expired sketch over at Sketch Girl (SG15).
