Hi everyone, here is your Monday inspiration over at Frosted Designs where our new challenge is to use punches. What do you mean it's not Monday? sshhhh....don't tell on me, I am posting this a day early, you really weren't suppose to notice!  I do hope you go over and see what the other lovely ladies on my DT have come up with, the creativity astounds me sometimes!

OK, so coloring on the canvas was a wee bit of a learning curve. When it's wet my gelatos had to wait for it to dry and then went back in with my pens to try and straighten out the coloring a bit. They color much better with markers. I added some glitter to the wings.
I admit I don't have many punches. I never invested in them especially after getting my Cricut machine, but I have a waterfall punch and used it here on the bottom of my card.

So get punching!

I seem to "bee" working a theme here :) 
I think it's bee-cause I've been out in the garden working lately!

Very cute! How clever to use a bee hive for this sketch. Great theme, great colors, and a great sentiment. I like how the sentiment is broken up. So glad that you joined us at Inkspirational!
