Last Swap Card......

Good Morning and Happy Thursday!

Don't you just love it when you're stumped on how to make/create something and when you find the perfect sketch; everything just falls into place?!! That's how I feel about this card & sketch everyone. I was at a total loss when it came to creating my cards for a demo group swap that I participate in.....thank goodness I remembered this blog---Card Sketch A Day---and I was sooo elated when the page opened and there was *my sketch* I instantly knew what I was going to do and set out to get these babies done!!

I used Just Buzzin' By--courtesy of my friend/downline Teresa...thank you!!! I also used my eyelet border & heart to heart punches along with my scalloped edge punch. I wasn't sure which sentiment to use with these cute lil' bees---I know, I'm lazy and wanted to use a punch instead of stamping and cutting out the sentiment that came with the set--so I just used one from the level 2 hostess set A Little Somethin'. I added some glitter to my bees & *looked* for a space to put ribbon---love that stuff and I like to use it on all my cards. This layout didn't *gel* with ribbon though so I reluctantly left it off. I think my card is still cute and I hope the ladies like them also!!

Well, I have some running to do today & I'm going to get my hair done! I've been looking forward to this for quite a while----some me time!!! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!
TTFN,
Hugs,
