The Beeez Kneez Blog Hop

Good morning everyone! I'm still moving a little slow, but I had to participate in this blog hop. My friend, Amy, the Caffinated Cropper, has started her own kit business. The first kit, the Beeez Kneez, is nearly sold out and I can see why! There are so many goodies in this kit, from stamps all the way down to hat pins.

If you've come from Debby's blog, you're in the right place. If you get lost on the hop, go back to the Caffinated Cropper for a full list of participants. Don't forget to leave some love at each stop - you could win a mini Beeez Kneez kit of your very own!

There are only 2 things on my card that did not come from the Beeez Kneez. I used some Frosted Lace Stickles on the bee's wings and the sentiment came from Unity - because I needed to make this a thank you card for my grandmother, whose favourite colour is green. There was no way I wasn't using this kit for her! The centre of the sunflower has Cinnamon Stickles and those came with the kit! I popped up the little bee for some added dimension, but it doesn't show well in the photo.
Challenges this card is for:
All Things Unity - ATU02 green (perfect for this kit!)
NinaB's blogiversary sketch
Cute Card Thursday Challenge 105 - dimensions
Crafty Ann's Challenge #11 - card for someone special
EtsyInspired #81 - Ponder & Stitch (this one for green and flowers)

Next on your trip today is sweet Ashley, who is not only a good friend, but a member of the Caffinated Cropper Design Team!
