Isn't it Funny that Bears like Honey.....

We will be having the Distress Markers arriving at the Shop soon! YAY!! We have ordered the full stand and also several of the sets! We have been being asked when they are going to arrive and according to the supplier we are hoping for Mid March... And we also have another May Arts Ribbon stand coming too! and lots of NEW Ribbons... we have a few new ones but there are lots more arriving soon so I'll keep you all posted...

Anyway so its Sunday and I have a Challenge for you...
This weeks Pile It On Challenge is 
Make it a fun foldNow I thought I would try a Centre step card can you believe that this is the first ever centre step card I have made.....
I have made the base card black and then added some watermark ink to kraft with a flourish background stamp (hero arts)  the image is Lenny (Stamp Fairy) isn't he just the cutest dressed as a bee... He is Coloured with Distress inks! (looking forward to the Distress markers arriving (insert Grin) I have also added glossy accents to his nose, antenna, feet pads and Honey. the button was white and I have inked and heat embossed it to make it yellow, the Ribbon is NEW and is May Arts.
