Buzzzzzzzz

Good morning to you all! A big welcome to my newest follower Tracy!  I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend so far.  I was saying to my husband last night that even though we are retired there is still something special about weekends, I guess its just years of looking forward to them and enjoying them when you are working that get ingrained in you and you can't shake it off!

Today I have a card that I made for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge which is Spring but when I have looked at the challenge I think they want something with a rabbit or chick on it so I am not going to enter it! I'll try and make another one lol.  Anyway here it is:


The stamps and sentiment are from Penny Black.  I have embossed the pearl card with a Tim Holtz honeycomb embossing folder.  The ribbon, button, twine and card candi are from my stash. The image has been coloured with Copics and I cut the bees out and put them on foam squares for some dimension. The flower is a Joy Craft die.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Crafty Ribbons - Anything Goes with Ribbon
Moving Along with the Times - Birds and the Bees
Paper Pretties - Terrific Texture
Creative Card Crew - Ribbon
Loves Rubber Stamps - Anything Goes
Artistic Inspirations - Things with Wings

Well enjoy your day and for those of you celebrating have a good Mother's Day tomorrow.  Thank you so much for looking, I love your visits!! Take care xx
