I hope you had a Blessed Thanksgiving Day yesterday.

Today, I'm sharing my last sneak peek for this week with the BEE MINE Suite Collection.

Two weeks ago on my Learning With Friends video I shared the Braiding Technique.  The Braiding Technique is often used for the "fold" part of the card like in the Christmas card at this link.   But today's fun Valentine's Day Card shows an alternative way to use the braiding technique to provide an accent on the front of your card.

Here the braid runs down the center of the Petal Pink Panel.  If you missed the Leaning with Friends video where I demonstrated how to do braiding, you can watch the replay here.

Let me introduce you to Petal Polly.  She's so exciting to be here today that she is flitting all over the place as you can see by the "bee trail" that's she has left in her wake.  She's so happy that she just sparkles everywhere.  She thinks it is her sparkling personality, but don't tell her that I gave her some assistance with a little Wink of Stella!

She also brought several friends with her to send her Valentines's Day wishes of happiness.  Some are flying quietly on the pretty designer series paper, and she found some golden friends in a retired stash of embellishments!  She didn't want to leave them behind so she insisted they be included.

Petal Polly also said she absolutely needed to buzz by on the inside of the card because she wasn't finished telling you how much you mean to her.

She wanted to make sure that you knew you make her heart buzz!

If you would like a tutorial for Petal Polly's card, you can use this link to download a copy.  This tutorial includes instructions for making a braid and the template to use for cutting your cardstock.

In addition to the BEE MINE Suite of Products, Petal Polly used the following current products to make her card.
