When I bought this set, I envisioned the wreath acting as a frame to another image, or perhaps a sentiment inside. Yesterday I took time to stamp in the afternoon, which I don't usually do. My morning session was a bust and what I had made didn't turn out post worthy so I was determined to make something that I liked. The idea isn't new but it turned out well. I used two different colors of red rhinestones on the wreath. I sponged River Rock ink on the door panels to define them more. I sponged Garden Green ink over the wreath.

Do you remember Aesop’s fable about the Grasshopper and the Ant? The industrious little ant worked all day, every day preparing for the days ahead of him. He was always prepared and never stressed. The grasshopper was a procrastinator. His motto was ‘Why work today when I can wait until I need it tomorrow.’ I try to be that ant and plan ahead, however, deep down inside, I'm a grasshopper. I keep revealing that about myself as I work on projects, have laundry to do or maybe even a lesson that needs to be prepared and I'm off having fun, procrastinating and putting off until I have to do it.
Today I am a grasshopper.
