I've gone square!

Yep... I've gone square! This is my first square card. I found some Bazzill square envelopes for a really good price, so I just had to get them and give a try at some square cards. Well it was just perfect timing, because my square Spellbinders Nestibilites Die Cutters came in today as well! Fate! I first colored my little bee hive from Rubbernecker Stamps with my copic markers, then went to put it with some patterned paper. Well that blue ended up being a little bold against the green. So I added some matching blue card stock to the stack on the card to help tie it in. I used my Fiskars Corner Squeeze punch! Man I love that thing! And once again I "stitched" the edges with my gel pen. I know I do that a lot, I don't know why it just doesn't feel finished with out it. OHHHH and what do you think of the honey??? I took my Tim Holtz Ranger alcohol ink and some diamond glaze and mixed it, then drizzled it out of the hive! It really looks like honey in person.
Well I have to cut it short today - My local Scrapbook store (see the link to the left for Scrapbook Corral) is having a "garage sale". And I have rented a table, so I need to get my stuff together. Then we are having a crop til the wee hours. Can you say Fun? Oh I hope I make some money! There is suppose to be two stamping people set up and bringing lots of stamps to sell! Wish me luck!
