We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop - Favorite Mini Bundle

BeeBlogHopOpeningIcon

Welcome to We BEE Stamping Team Blog Hop for September.  We are featuring our favorite Bundle from the 2021 Fall/Holiday Mini Catalog.  

Mine is favorite is the Whimsical Tree Bundle which also happens to come in a product suite called Whimsy & Wonder Suite Collection.  I don't know why but there is something that draws me to non-traditional colors for Christmas time and this definitely is that!  Pool Party, Blushing Bride, Misty Moonlight, Mint Macaron and Mossy Meadow are the featured colors of the fabulous designer series paper (Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP).  

So let's take a look at my project which features a little twist!  It is an Easel Card.
