BBTB2 Bee Challenge and Blog Hop!

Hello everyone! This is my second challenge as part of the DT for BBTB2 and it's also our Blog Hop time!...we were asked to use the Bee from Sentimentals but I don't have that cart yet, so I chose the bee from Create a Critter. I welded the bee hive together on my gypsy to make it into a card. I cut the yellow layer just a little bit smaller so it created a shadow and ran it through the cuttle bug. The bee is just too cute I thought..and super super easy to layer. The bee hive had a smaller heart on the top of it, but I cut it off and added a bigger heart and layered it from the Paisely cart.I stamped the sentiment, added faux stitching, added the cute little prima flowers with the lil yellow button and did some inking. Hope you like it! Now onto the BLOG HOP!...

You can start the hop from the BBTB2 blog HERE or if you came from Enfys blog then you are in the right spot! Here is the blog candy I am giving away..it's a super cute mini album I just finished using Create a Critter..the lucky winner will be drawn on Thursday April 29th, ( I will use Random.org) all you have to do is leave a comment and make sure you are a follower!.....
All of the envelopes and tags were cut from Plantin Schoolbook and each tag is stamped with a cute woodland critter, there is room for journaling and to add pics.. :)
 This was a lot of fun to make and I hope however wins loves it as much as I do!

Ok now you need to hop over to Beth's blog HERE to check out her fun projects!

**Make sure you leave a comment and a way that I can get a hold of you if win! TFL! :)

Karen said...

I could not find your email address but I had a question for you....when you make a mini like this amazing one, do you cut your chipboard with the critter shape at the end? Or is it a rectangle piece of chipboard with two of the critters sandwiched around it? Just starting to make mini's and did not know the correct way to do that?!
Thanks,
Karen

maybe you could email me back at:

Hi-
I posted a comment late last night. Im in California so hopefully I made it before the deadline. But now that Im looking at all the comments, I don't see mine. I'm wondering if there was a glitch.
In my previous post i forgot to write my email add and i wanted to send it now, just in case. Its superchickk1997@yahoo.com
Thanks!!!
Jessica M. Los Angeles, CA

Hi,
I just love this book - I would image you spent a long time creating and making it - I'm not sure if you sell your files but thought it might be worth asking as I would be interested in paying for it.
