Bees and Cutie Pies... w/MFT!

Good Tuesday to you :) 
It is freeeeeezing! and wiiiindy!!! 
I am hiding on the couch with a warm blanket and my Copics with a few images to color until I have to pick up my boys from the bus stop later - and I will be taking the car there, lol! It is waaay too cold to be walking anywhere... which reminds me, I should make a stop at the mailbox too ;) 

Today, I decided to join in on My Favorite Things latest sketch
and January Guest Designer Contest!!! 

For the sketch challenge {MFTWSC52} I decided to finally ink up one of my favorite Bee stamps, Just Bee Yourself by Claire Keay... I had a bit of fun paper piecing too using my new to me 6x6 pad from my sister, My Mind's Eye Jack/Jill Quite Contrary - to which I just learned is retired! Eeek! 
and then did some Copic coloring over the DP too :) I really wanted to make sure she looked like a bumble-y bee! 

Here's the sketch and Die-namics that I used: 

My next card is for this month's MFT Guest Designer Contest... 
the theme was to do some Paper Piecing!!! My favorite!!! 

I just had to use this sweet Pure Innocence little girl, 
She makes the perfect Valentine, especially with those little pigtails :) 
I used my most fave 6x6 pad right now, My Mind's Eye Love Me and 
a few of MFT's Die-namics, Flower/Leaf Trio and Open Scallop Edge.
And of course I went a bit crazy with my Paper Pen again ;)
Love this stuff for pearls!!!
and don't look to closely! because if you do, you can see that in the left hand corner I smudged a bit because I always forget that this is wet stuff that needs to dry before taking pics, lol! 

I had so much fun trying to stay warm while creating these lovelies!
I hope you like them too!!!

Good luck to all who are playing along :) 
and thanks for stopping by today!!!
