Bee Balm Peek!...

Happy Monday,

I had a fab weekend in Kent at the Create It show and it was so lovely to meet so many old and new friends and members of the blog family!

I promised yesterday that I would be starting to sneak peak my new collection today so I present the Bee Balm collection.  This is all based arround the Bee Balm flower ( a Bergamot but I prefer the Colloquial name Bee Balm!)

This is a deceptively simple card made using g the Bee Balm flower plate die and matching stamp set.  As with the Gerbera Daisy there is a single stamp with all the flowers own it and a matching plate that slots over using the registration marks on the corner of the stamped image.  The stamped bees come form the stamp set wit the flowers.

I simply added the swirl leaves die and some hat pins to finish.

The whole range will launch this Friday at 6pm as the One Day special on Hochanda keep watching this week for more sneak peaks or tune in on Friday or through the day Saturday.
