Many Thanks

Hello!  Been a while… but I’ve been a busy bee making this sweet card using Buckets of Love from There She Goes Clear stamps.  The sentiment is from the Clearly Sentimental stamp set.  Isn’t it pretty?  And wouldn’t the bees just love that bucket of flowers?  Speaking of bees I have a carpenter bee making its home in my deck.  Yes – in my deck!  Little pest bored a hole into one of the wood planks that makes up the deck.  Grouch grouch grouch.

But enough about the bees and onto the flowers. ;)  I stamped the bucket and the flowers (stamped twice for layering) and colored them with Copic markers.  I added a bit of glitter and Glossy Accents to the hearts after trimming and layering the images.  The layout is the June SFYTT from i{heart}2stamp.com and the delicious designer papers are from the Stella Rose – Hazel 6x6 pad of paper.  I’ve used so much paper from this set that I might actually use the whole pad.  What a shocker?!

I tied some pretty May Arts ribbon around the card and attached a tag with jute.  I purchased the striped twill ribbon from my friend Corinna’s shop: RibbonCarousel.com.  I, ahem, may have ordered a few other ribbons while I was at it. ;)
