Happy 4th BEE Day Honey Bee!

Hello Crafters! 

Welcome to day two of the Happy 4th BEE Day Blog Hop! We are celebrating 4 years of the amazing Honey Bee Stamps. I am so blessed to be able to work for this wonderful company but even more blessed for the friendships I have made because of it.

Do you know how cute this release is? 
It's so cute it made me paint cats. CATS. 
I'm firmly in the dog camp and even I couldn't resist these kitties! 

I stamped my images down on Canson watercolor paper using Amalgum Whisper ink for a no line coloring look. I used my Daniel Smith watercolors and just took my time painting along. 


The kitties were inspired by my friends cats which is who I will be sending this card too. I mean if I ever make it to my mailbox ha. 

You know the deal by now. Video is to come :) 


You can check out Ilda's card here. 
Thanks for stopping by! 

Your next stop on the hope is my sweet and endlessly talented friend Vera Yates who I know has something fantastic in store for you!

  31. So glad everything with the hearing of Peanuts is oké. I saw him play Lacrosse on Instagram and hope that he will love it although it's sometimes hard.
    Great that Eric is organizing your craftroom, when he is finished can you send him over to me? LOL.
    Hope your ants and spiders are gone now, why are they like your house so much?
    I love your card, I am also a dog person but these kitty's are so adorable.
    Thank you so much for sharing and your update on the stories, have a wonderful Easter weekend and Happy Fourth Beeday to Honey Bee!

  34. I started watching your YouTube videos a couple of months ago and now I am an addict. I just love watching you color and listening to your stories. I have learned a ton about color and shading from watching. I was always so intimidated with the thought of learning to to color, and now I have an obsession to learn. I bought some alcohol markers and some watercolors and I have started to play.

    This card is beautiful and one of the reasons that I now want to learn to color. Please keep sharing, I always get a smile while listening to your stories and I am never disappointed with your cards.
    Thanks for sharing!
