  4. Hi Melissa!
    I wanted to stop by and thank you for sharing your awesome recycled project with us at Word Art Wednesday. I'm always SO grateful to have you play along.

    Also, I wanted to mention to you that Inspired By Stamping has a super cute stamp set that includes your "signature quote" Bee-U-tiful in the set. I thought you might like that. I'm Guest Designing for them this month, and when I saw that stamp set, I thought of you. You can find that site here:
    Thanks again for sharing your art with us, and have a blessed week!
