The Bees have it


Well I found the rest of my Mojo this weekend. I had made a bunch of card bases last weekend and this weekend put stamp and ink to them. I decided to use stamps that I have not used in a while or had yet to use. I love these cute little bees they are so versitle. I had to make a card for someone at work. I did not want to create a typical male card so challenged myself to use these cute little guys and come up with a male card. This card so cries for ribbon but as it was for a guy I did not want to use it and used these cute brads instead. No matter what I do I cannot get them to line up in a straight line. I used my SU piercing template to create the holes but still no luck, but I figure that is the beauty of hand made, the imperfections are what make it special. I have noticed a lot of people using copics to shade their images and played with that this weekend. I have a bunch more cards to share, it was a busy weekend.
