Honey Bee Spring Release Blog Hop



Hi everyone and welcome to day 1 of Honey Bee Spring Release Blog hop. We're so happy to have you joining up. You should arrive here from the talented May Park and in case you missed any link, the hop starts HERE.

Honey Bee released quite a few sets with this release, but as you may know, yours truly love animals, so, it would be no surprise that I chose to play with what I consider the cutest fella in the bunch, Pinky The Pig.




I stamped, colored and die cut the image and you know what I love about the dies? It actually cut the hooves, so you can lift it up and insert the cake (or cupcake or pinwheel, just depend on the theme of your card). I love it, because often I have to cut the slit myself when working with animal images.




For the background I used one of the stencil from Hexi Patterns Background Stencil. Once I finished inking it with various ink colors, I adhere the piggy with pop dots and stamp the sentiment (from Hey, Pumpkin set). And, of course, I have to sprinkle some confetti. The one I used is the Surprise Confetti mix.

GIVEAWAY
Now, no hop is complete without a giveaway, right? Honey Bee is giving away two $50 gift certificate and 4 of the Bee Organized Prize Pack. Simply leave a comment on each blog and winners will be announced on this page of the HBS blog on May 5th. 

From here please hop on over to Wanda Guess and to make it easy, below is a complete list of the hop participants for day 1. Thank you all for stopping by here and may your day be a wonderful one.

Oh, drat! I used to collect pigs, and had to give it up when they took over my house. This is seriously tempting me to start up again!! He is just adorable, and I love your subtle background.

Is it terrible that this little pig reminds me of one of my nieces? I mean it in the nicest way: she's the most adorable redhead with chubby cheeks, and her eyes crinkle when she smiles like on this stamp. Anyway, I love your coloring, and I love how Honey Bee thinks out its dies so there are things like the cut around the hooves so the pig can hold something. Thanks for sharing!
