So, everyone, how was your Valentine’s Day? Mine was pretty good. Andrew and I managed to eat an entire pizza pie and then we spoke to my friend Carolyn over in Australia through Google Hangouts. It’s kind of neat that you can sit face to face and talk with someone who is 15 hours ahead of you in time. She lives approximately 10,500 miles away from us. Isn’t that crazy to think about?!
The inspiration for today’s post comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. This week’s sketch comes from Jen B…
My card today is nice and simple. The base of the card is Daffodil Delight Card Stock and on top of that is a piece of Basic Black that I cut out with the Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die. I cut another piece of So Saffron out with the same die and used eight of the honeycombs to stamp bees from the Postage Collection Host(ess) Stamp Set in Basic Black. Three of the bees are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the other ones are placed within their cutouts. My greeting is from the Six Sided Sampler Stamp Set, stamped in Basic Black and punched out with the Hexagon Punch. A piece of Linen Thread tied in a bow at the top completes the card. Like I said, nice and simple but fun. As you know, the Hexagon Hive Die is one of my favorites, and I thought it worked really well for this sketch! I also like the subtle difference between the So Saffron and Daffodil Delight, I think it makes the bees stand out a little bit more. And there is my Freshly Made Sketches sketches card for this week’s challenge. I hope you enjoy your Saturday and thanks so much for stopping by!
