  2. Love this card, I bet your hubby did too! Were you SunshineHoneyBee on Shuttercal?? I remember you often posted photos of your cards. -beckyk927

    1. Yes, I was "Sunshine HoneyBee" on Shuttercal. Shuttercal went down and before it was to come back up the announcement was made that they would only allow paying/donate members to post & continue and since I was not a paying/donate member I'm not allow to post anymore on Shuttercal. I miss Shuttercal but not wanting to pay/donate when it was free to begin with. Have a Bee-utiful evng!
