Amy’s Inkin Krew Occasions Catalog/Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today I am participating in my FIRST ever blog hop with Amy’s  Inkin Krew. Today our challenge was using something from the NEW Occasions or Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  I  could not resist the darling bee from Dragonfly Dreams and inked him up for my share today.

    The bees look like they are getting ready to fly off the paper. Like I could reach into the computer and touch them!

    Oh my goodness! I love this – those bees are wonderful and I love the addition of the candy dots. Perfectly done, Kristi!! 🙂

    Congratulations on nailing your FIRST blog hop with Amy’s Inkin Crew. It’s a great card–you brought those bees to life.

    This is so, so pretty! I love everything about it. And that bow is perfectly tied – so impressed (I consider bows my nemesis).
