Hello crafty friends! Welcome to the 2nd Birthday Bash & SURPRISE Blog Hop! Melissa doesn’t know we’ve planned this…so hopefully it’s a good surprise!

(And before I forget to add this – there’s a Design Team call HERE for Honey Bee!) 

Copic Color a Black-Eyed Susan Garden

I’m a Maryland girl from my youth, despite living out west – so today, since a yellow-and-black card was on deck with the sweet Busy Bees set, I’m creating a garden with my home state flower – the Black Eyed Susan! I’m adapting the stamp lines a little to create the centers, and in the video you’ll see how I created this whole card without masking at all. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The tiny bees I used, I was told, are little freebies – so be sure to read up on the main Honey Bee Stamps bloghop page about the details to get that little set!

And it wouldn’t be a party without favors, right?

Next stop on the hop is Taniesa – go go go!
