Honey Bee Version 3 - The Final Cut

The last version, well so far anyway is in the same colours as the one that inspired me, I have also used all the bees. I don't know why but as I look at the card I can hear a big chonky bumble bee buzzing around my head lol.

Honey Bee Version 2

The second colour version of this set and still not my favourite but I really wanted to use pinks for this particular person, of course my RV11 and 13 ran out of ink right after I finished one of the flowers so I had to change to the R85, 83, 81 combo. I wonder how many of you would be able to spot which flower is the odd one out....I made the card and I struggled lol

Honey Bee Version 1

When this set was the my monthly hero art kit I wanted it so badly but it sold out too quickly so imagine my surprise when I found it on ebay, of course I had to get it and I couldn't bee-lieve that anyone wanted to part with it but I am so glad they did.

I have made a few different versions of this card and each time I like it so much I want to make more and more.

Butterfly Wings

I cannot tell you how many times I have nearly bought this die, or how many trips to the Crafters Companion store I have made to see it in person. Eventually of course I bought it online and let me tell you it doesn’t disappoint in person.

So far I’ve only made these two cards but I have ideas for many more and that makes me happy

Prima Planner Girl version 1

This really harkens back to one of my older cards, even the papers and dies are the same and that is because my mojo was missing so I decided to look through some of my stamps for inspiration and I came across this set. I made the card on a call with crafty friends and this stamp made them dig out their own prima dolls and make some cards too. 

I felt like I was enabling even though they were only shopping their stash lol.
