To Bee Or Not To Bee Blog Hop

hello!
i'm so excited to be part of the To Bee Or Not To Bee Blog Hop! you should have arrived here from Kathy Curry's blog! if not, no worries, you can always start at the beginning, by clicking here!
bees are SO important to our life, and we wanted to celebrate them!! you can read all about World Bee Day and the reasons bees are amazing, here!
and check out these AMAZING sponsors!!!]

Milka is also giving away a prize: Jane’s Doodles ‘Daisies’ stamp set.

14 prizes will be given away to 14 winners. 


i made a BUNCH of cards for this event!

my first set of cards features the ADORABLE bee image from Pretty Pink Posh's Bee Friends stamp set! 


i colored the bees with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, then fussy cut them out! I used the awesome Lawn Fawn Snow Backdrop Die plate and the Grassy Border die to create the scene! 
I used a striped stencil and some grey mist to create the background! 

my next set of cards also used the bees from the Bee Friends stamp set!



i used some Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink to create a watercolor look, and then some coordinating sequins to add a little bling! :)
my last set of cards feature images from the Newton's Nook Cottage Garden stamp set, as well as the little bee from Lawn Fawn's Let's Play!




i used Distress Oxide inks and did some light ink blending and masking. then i stamped the floral images over the blending! love how clean and pretty that looks!


the sentiment is from Simply Sentimental!
thank you SO much for hanging with me on World Bee Day!

next up on the hop is the INCREDIBLE Sonja Kerkhoffs

Milka will announce winners on her blog onWednesday, May 31st. Winners have to confirm prizes in a week. Unconfirmed prizes will be redrawn. 
enjoy!
