Get Inky! Blog Hop -- Hello and Farewell

As a Get Inky! alumni, I've been invited back to hop with the current team.  New members are being introduced today while we former members are saying our farewells.  What a great idea, and I think Thia for not only this chance to hop today, but also the chance to serve on her design team last term.  I adore any chance I have to play with stamps, and she has some fun ones!
Here's the hop line-up, in case you just happened across my blog and you'd like to start at the beginning:

Now, for my project...
When I served on the Get Inky! Stamps design team, the stamp set I used the most was the Buzzing Bees set.  So, it seemed only right to reach for it again for this hop.

I used a cutting file from The Cutting Cafe for the beehive shaped card. I used paper from October Afternoon.  The bees and the sentiment are both from the Get Inky! Buzzing Bees stamp set and are embossed in white. Close To My Heart Saddle ink was used on the edges of the 2 layers of beehive.  And some 3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon in Aqua Splash from the Carribean Splash Bundle finishes off the card.

 Now for the fun part... Leave a comment on each blog along the way and you'll be entered to win:
