A sweet friendship

I've been busy making some cards for customers who've ordered recently and came across a cool card on The Angel Co.'s Paper Crafting Community by Kelly Rasmussen using the Swirled Spring Life hostess A set.  It inspired this card which is not quite as elaborate but I had fun making it. I used Jewel Tone Chalks to color and a bit of Stardust Clear Gel pen on the bee's antenna.  The chalk gives a very subtle glimmer which just will not show up in my photos.  The text is from the Filled With Joy set of which I just realized that I have 2 of this set so if you're interested it will be for sale shortly.

I used a coordinating Copic marker to color the ribbon. 

We've had wild fires just south of us about 20 - 25 miles and the smoke has been horrible along with the headaches it causes.  Please pray for some rain for us here in southern AZ.  Thanks!

And check out the New Catty Sneak Peek tab just below the banner!!  Seven brand new sets you can order NOW (mid-June shipping or so) from the new Inspiration Book coming out June 27!!  Contact me!!
