Feeling Sentimental

* If you are looking for the My Pink Stamper blog hop, click here.*

  The Betty Bee's Buzz HoneyBees are taking flight!  We are a group of bee-u-tiful friends invited by Betty to share our love of paper crafting and paper trends at Betty Bee's Buzz.  Even though our friendships will endure, Betty Bee's Buzz challenge blog is closing.  Today marks the HoneyBee's final buzz celebrating our fun together.


  I created this aperture card because it was Betty who taught me how to create an aperture on my Cricut Expression.  (Aperture tutorial here.)


My bee hive was completely inspired by this card by former HoneyBee, Court.  As soon as I saw her card, I wanted to own the Cricut Sentimentals cartridge...guess who bought it for me?  Yeah, Court's a Sweetie Bee.

My patterned paper and stamp are on sale at ShopPumpkinSpice.

Supplies:
Cricut cartridge:  Sentimentals cut image, layer, and shadow @ 5" (hive); bee cut @ 3"
Cuttlebug embossing folder:  D'Vine Swirls by Provo Craft (hive) and Morroccan Screen by Provo Craft (bee)
paper:  Echo Park Country Drive "Bee's Knees" double-sided 12x12; ACMoore black and yellow card stock;  Stampin' Up! whisper white
sentiment:  Punny-licious by My Pink Stamper
ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
other:  Glossy Accents; ribbon from my stash
