Thanks for the Journey

Over the last three months I've had the privilege to work with ABC Design Team...and I've loved every minute.  Julie and the rest of the design team are so sweet and wonderful and have made me feel welcomed.  So I wanted to make my last project a thank you to all of the team. 

Of course you know how much I love Crafty of course I'm going to use their products for my last post.  The Dahlia stamp is currently sold out in the store...because it's so beautiful, but I'm sure Julie can get you one if you contact her. The flower was heat embossed and then colored with Distress Ink...but the real bling comes in with Ranger's Stickles (Gold) that was outlined around the tag and also added for highlights to the flower. 

Thanks for checking out my work for the last few months for ABC and I hope you'll keep up with ABC Blog in the future.

See you next week!

Bees are so Elegant

I just adore bees!  They are so elegant and just one of those wonders of nature. Heartfelts new Bella Rose Collection has this exquist bee stamp and man is it going to get a ton of use in my workshop.  The lovely Spellbinders die is also from Heartfelt and the two together just make a great pair.  Love them!!!
