HOT Firecracker designs Blog hop

Hi all! well I am better enough to actually get a card done. I had thought of what I wanted to do and this card was fun. plus the colors are not something I normally do.



I used my scorpal for the grid. I am still pretty new to this technique and messed up one corner. I wish I would have caught it before gluing my sentiment then I would have just switched sides. I heat set the fence with clear embossing powder and also the plant with clear EP. The bees were all heat set with black EP. I used a paper piercer to make a little pattern to show you where the bees flew. I also used some flower soft as well. The set I used was Sally's garden of weedin

This is a “circular blog hop” where the only beginning is wherever you start!! You will know you are at the end of your blog hop when you’ve come back to the blog you’ve started from! (It’s not a huge circle…so it should be easy to remember where you started.)

The winner will be chosen from a mystery blog hostess that we don’t even know who it will be until the hop is over…so that’s why you’ll want to leave a comment on EVERY blog, so you don’t miss out!

**To find out if you’ve won… you will be contacted by Pamela via e-mail (so be sure to leave it with your comment.) and you can also find out on Pamela’s blog after the blog hop ends on Wed., July 28th at 8:00 PM (EST).**

Now, to continue the circle, you will need to hop on over to Pam and keep going until you’ve come back to where you’ve started! Thanks so much for playing along with us and we hope you have a great time!

Adorable!!

Did you score the background of the card or was it perhaps Cuttlebug embossing folder? I adored the little diamonds and the pathway of the bees. Garden of Weedin made me smile as I just love gardening and have to wonder if Eve had weeds in her garden... giggle!!! Thank you for a wonderful share!!! ~ betsyc
