Honey Bee Cheerful Love Blog Hop


The Honey Bee Stamps Cheerful Love Release is now available in the store!  To celebrate the new release, we are having a two day blog hop called Cheerful Love.  So please hop along with us both days to be inspired!

Be sure to visit each blog and leave a comment to be entered to win!!  Honey Bee Stamps will be giving away two $50 gift cards to the Honey Bee Stamps store, one from each day.  The winners will be posted on Honey Bee's blog Tuesday, February 27th.  The complete list of the hop for Day 1 is below.

I'm so happy to be joining in on the Honey Bee Stamps new release blog hop!

Did you know that platypuses (yep, that's the plural) are only found in freshwater areas throughout the island of Tasmania and the eastern and southeastern coast of Australia?  Here's another interesting fact:  males have a spur on the back of their hind feet that are venomous! (source: Live Science).

Well, let me introduce you to Penny!  No venom here, only sweet and adorable cuteness!!!


This cute girl is relaxing in the sparkling, swirling waters with her yummy beverage!  I colored her with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  After heat embossing the beautiful Ocean Borders background stamp with white embossing powder, I colored it using three Spectrum Noir sparkle pens in Teacup, Topaz Blue, and Clear.



Penny is popped up onto an action wobbler!  Check out her action!  So much fun!


I sure hope you've enjoyed meeting adorable Penny!  Thank you so very much for hopping with us today!  Don't forget to leave a comment on each blog to increase your chances at one of the Honey Bee Stamps gift card!

This is my favorite “Penny” so far! Great job on the coloring of her and also having her bounding out of the frame really adds the 3D effect. Great job on this!

Loving a very wobbly Penny, I never knew those facts you gave us. She's adorable & you've coloured her & the background so beautifully, this card really catches your eye. Thank you for showing us your wobbly work.
