Freshly Made Sketches #77


Jen has a great sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  I could not resist pulling out the Buzz & Bumble paper pack again.  The bee theme is really growing on me!  I recently added the Bumble Bee Quick Card stamp to my collection.  It is perfect with the Buzz & Bumble papers!  Here is a look at the original sketch-

I am a little late to the washi tape craze!  When Close To My Heart added washi tape to the catalog line up....I finally caved and purchased a roll.  This is my first card using the tape.  I have to admit...I can see why so many of you are fans of washi tape.  The tape goes on so smoothly and you can even re-position with ease!  I am sure more colors will be added to my collection soon!



All supplies by Close To My Heart:
A1135 Quick Cards Bumble Bee
G1054 Buzz & Bumble WOTG Kit
Z2114 Cocoa Ink
Z2123 Goldrush Ink

I was wondering what the "buzz" was about with this tape. I, too, have not used it. It's repositionable? It looks great on this card - I think I need to try it too. Love the new stamp too, I was trying to decide if it was as cute as it is in the catalog - it is way cuter on your card!

I never thought I would like bees so much, but you've convinced me that they are pretty fantastic! I love these colors, the washi, the bit of burlap and that very sweet flower!

I was in love with this the minute I saw it in the DT gallery! Wow, wow, wow! Love that little bit of burlap too. Ah, the washi tape. Trying to hold off but I suspect I won't be able to much longer.
