Whew, okay here's how I was inspired:



This year I decided to ink up the Reverse Confetti Honey Bear set.  Oh he's so cute with his friend the bee.  I have them nestled onto a Tag Me.  The clouds have been cut from craft foam.


I've had that hex embossing folder in my stash for a while.  It's perfect in the Sunshine cardstock.  The sentiment is from The Buzz stamp set, love the mixed fonts.


I can't wait to see how the other's were inspired!  You can find the complete hop listing on Milka's blog!  A big shout out to Milka for the invite and the coordination of this awesome event!

Now hop over to Barbara Sproatmeyer's blog!
