CASE STUDY 4TH ANNIVERSARY BLOG HOP

Hello crafty friends! CASE Study Challenge Blog is celebrating its fourth birthday & I'm here to help celebrate by creating a special card for their blog hop.

If you arrived from the blog of Kathy Racoosin, you are on the right path. If you are just joining in here you can find the start & hop details HERE.

Since CASE Study challenges are all about finding inspiration from others, we were asked to share something that we create and the inspiration for it. Lately I've been collecting vintage broaches. I just love them & I'm on the look out for one that is in the form of one of my favorite things... a bee. I'm just in love with the little creatures that help spread beauty and life through pollination. One day I'm going to find one! And that my friends is the source of inspiration & you can see my inspiration on Pinterest here, here and here. Aren't they gorgeous?

Here's a card I created that is inspired by those beauties...
This week's prize sponsor's are Poppy Stamps, Pretty Pink Posh, WPlus9, and The Twinery. Please note: commenting on all entries is compulsory for  you to be eligible  for the prizes CASE Study is giving away. The contest is open until midnight on the following Tuesday at 11:59pm.

I hope you have enjoyed the hop & Happy Birthday CASE Study!

How interesting that you're fascinated by vintage brooches, and especially ones featuring bees! I, too, find bees to be amazing - and I hope that environmentalists find ways to ensure that we do what is necessary to keep those essentials of life alive and flourishing. Your card is pure delight, made all the more special as its infused with something you're passionate about. Fabulous and inspiring on many levels!

Hi Windy, what beautiful broaches. I can see why you would want one, especially in the shape of a bee. The way you've integrated the bees and hexagon hive pattern into your card is wonderful. I agree---life is better with bees in it. :)
