Bee Mine...Valentine!

Hello everyone! Just a quick post today. I’m getting in just under the wire for this week’s CASology Challenge. Our Cue Card is ‘Bubbly’, so I decided to use speech bubbles for my card, and since I used this sweet little bumble bee, I think I’ll add this to my collection for the Caring Hearts Card Drive


I finally broke out my Tim Holtz Honeycomb stencil, which I won in Barb Engler’s challenge...thanks, Barb! I stamped the Lawn Fawn ‘Bee Mine’ sentiment and bee, and with selective inking, I added the word 'Valentine’ from Hero Arts ‘Celebrate Everyday’ set. 

Well, that’s it for me ~ I hope everyone is having a fun and crafty weekend! 
Barb
