What's the Buzz... ISSC22!!

Yep... you will hear it again!! YIPEE!! This has been some kind of few weeks for me, phew... time to slow down!!

Kick starting the weekend with the 22nd sketch at I Spy Sketches. This is the sketch challenge where we come looking for YOUR cards for inspiration!! This week the sketch is based on  this card by Julie Mogford (jules_bmp@ SCS). Adorable, right?!?!
Pulled out a set from The Crafts Meow that I got a while back and hadn't seen ink yet. It has bunches of different hexagon stamps along with some adorable bees and sentiments, just sayin'!! Tobi Crawford made this card a while back and it reminded me of this set (and that I hadn't inked it up) so....

Stamped the single outline hexagon onto some strips of Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 paper (bought two of these as I LOVED the papers) and rounded the corners. Stamped those bees onto XPress It Blending cardstock and colored a "titch" with copics. Sentiment is stamped on white and cut out with Verves Embossed Oval die and attached with a SU clip. Card base and Bees are all popped up with foam.

Here's the sketch

It's your turn....have fun and get to Stampin!! Make a card using the sketch- you can take a bit o' liberty and link it up.... we'd LOVE to see what you create!! Make sure and stop by the blog to see what the other Special Agents created-serious creativity and inspiation!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!! Ingredients
