Sweet as Honey

We are over the midweek hump... that much closer to the weekend! It's been a busy week so far. I'm completing a lot of unfinished tasks at work - feels great to cross things off the list!
Last night I cooked a delicious dinner of salmon, garlic quinoa with parmesan, and veggies. The salmon was baked in soy sauce, a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg and pepper, and lemon juice. It was not bad.. a little bland. I think next time I'll try a tastier marinade. The quinoa was delicious though! For the recipe, click here. It has to be my favourite quinoa recipe so far!

For today's card, I played along with a colour combo from Dynamic Duos and a fabulous sketch from Paper Players.

When I saw the Dynamic Duos colour combos this week, I thought of honeybees! I recently bought a stamp set from Close to My Heart called "Honeycomb" - I love it! I used hexagons in place of the squares in the sketch and added the sentiment "sweet as honey". A strip of black striped designer paper is punched with the scalloped border. I added So Saffron grosgrain ribbon for the 'dessert option'. To complete the card, I stamped a bee from the "Bugs and Hugs" stamp set, fussy cut it, and popped it up using dimensionals.
Thanks for looking! Make sure to stop by tomorrow for a new KCRR challenge!
