Spring Sampler

Today's card was one found on Pinterest.  You can see the original card here.  And of course I changed it a little bit.  I used More Mustard (another color retiring!) and I sponged it a lot.  I believe the original card was made using Daffodil Delight.  

This was a fun card to make but some "Bee" wording may have been more fun on it.  I suppose I could have done something on the computer but I never think of those things until I'm all done with the card and I'm seeing it on the computer screen as I'm writing up the post.  At this point it's too late to do much about it other than starting all over and most of the time that is not an option.

I did get to finally play with the honeycomb embossing folder.  I am still not sure why I bought it.  I think it was because I saw a card made with it and the "combs" were filled in with small hexagons.  I wasn't fond of the idea of cutting all of those little hexagons out but I did hear through the grapevine that Archiver's has a punch that is that exact size!!!  I may have to check that one out if I want to get more use out of my folder!

I had made this card over a week ago and it got lost in the pile of papers on my worktable.  I had forgotten about it until I was straightening up stuff.  I'm such a messy stamper!  I hate having to stop stamping to clean up my mess so I just move things over a bit and continue on.  Then when it's time to clean it all up I whine!!! LOL  I need someone to pickup after me!  LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

sometimes if you shim the folder it cuts the paper.
