B-Line Designs - Gettin' Shabby!

I ADORE B-Line Designs stamps.  They are some of the most wonderful vintage stamps I have ever seen!  Unfortunately they do not have an online store, so you have to find somewhere that sells them online, or get your local store to order them.  I think she attends stamp shows as well.  The only online store I"m aware of that sells them is  If you know of somewhere, let me know.  My local store is 50 min. away so ordering more from them would be a little out of my way.  Luckily I have a stash of them.  A stamp store in Jacksonville, FL carries them so when we lived there I purchased a few.

The dog / sentiment above and bears / sentiment below are available on page 5 of their "Pick Me Up" catalog (just in case you want to get them ordered in)

You can view all of their catalogs at their web site HERE.  They are a little slow to download, but worth the wait.

Altered Photo Frame

Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps April New Release Celebration!  I"m so excited to be the guest designer this month for Sweet N Sassy and I had so much fun playing with 2 of the new release sets!!  Today I"m sharing an altered acrylic frame using "Bee Happy Rhubarb".  The images from the set that I used are Rhubarb, the sentiment and the little bee's.  The flowers, sun and border were hand drawn.  And the little cutie in the photo is my son 22 years ago.  Boy how time flies.  If I could just kiss those little chubby cheeks one more time ....  I know there will many more inspirational projects during the hop, so take a minute to hop around and then join in the party over at SCS.

Here's the full list of Design Divas (and our special April Guest) sharing their creativity with you today.  Just click on the name to go to their blogs:
