Welcome Back - BBTB2-Lyrical Letters Challenge

Welcome to the BBTB2 Challenge, our hostess today is the talented Karen Pinsonat and she picked one of my favorite cuts, the hummingbird from "Lyrical Letters" cart.  There is nothing like a break to get that mojo rolling.  Please check out the designs from my team members at BBTB2 you will be inspired.
For my background paper I chose to cut a square 5 1/2" X 5 1/2" from the patterned paper (Bonus) on the Imagine "Nursery Tails", I used two card stocks for my backing.  The flower and the hummingbird were cut with Lyrical Letters and the coloring was done with Copics.  I then cut the bee charm from a Sizzix die onto "Shrinky Dinks" material and colored with Prisma Color markers and shrunk in my toaster oven. I hung it from my polka dotted ribbon.  I also added a little glitter to the sun.  Happy Monday and hope you all have a fantastic week. Hugs, Sandi

Sandi--Super idea to print that Imagine paper scene. It's nice to see it printed up because I haven't done that yet with my Imagine. I don't know how you managed to cut that hummingbird so teeny tiny and make it look so good. Love the dangling bee charm. Great design, as always!!!

Hey Jeri, thanks for bringing that up cause the success of the card lay totally in my being able to get the hummer tiny, and I have said this so many times but will repeat, I am so totally amazed with the precision and accuracy of the Imagine, sometimes I tell myself it is just my imagination LOL but not it is truly the way the I cuts. Thanks everyone for comments. Hugs

Such a cute little scene Sandi. Love that little Bee charm too, I almost didn't see him up there! After I did my cards I was looking at the Lori's garden cart and there was a Hummingbird on it and I could have used my Imagine, that I always seem to "forget" that I have, lol!
