While surfing Pinterest I ran across an adorable card created by Dianne Sisneros. 

Naturally, when you find a project you want to copy up end up changing it a bit.  That's what I did with this one.

I had the perfect reason to buy this stamp, too!  Any day now I will be getting "thee call" that my newest great nephew will be on his way.  I'm on kid duty which means when my niece, Nikki, calls, I'll head over to watch the other two boys.  I refer to them as my little loves. Jack will be 5 and Henry will be 3, both in June.  We know Nikki's having a boy but her and her husband refuse to share his chosen name with us until he's born.  So few things are left a surprise anymore so we're fine with their decision.  In the meantime I'm calling baby #3, 'baby what's his name'.

So, this is baby what's his name's card!

I used a sponge dauber and rubbed Hello Honey ink onto the Honeycomb embossing folder layer.  I layered the color so it went diagonally across the card for interest.

The designer paper is from Sweet Dreams and is cut 2"x4".  I used 7" of the Hello Honey Quilted Cotton Ribbon and 8" of Linen Thread to make the side knot.  

Baby Bumblebee with words

You'll notice that this single image stamp comes with the words included with the image. I wanted them separately so I used my scissors and cut the words off, mounting them on the side of the block. This is a great tip for those 'have to have' stamps where the words are included. 

Baby Bumblebee stamp

I can't wait until baby what's his name arrives. In the meantime, this bumblebee will have to do!
