Bee Mine



Hello everyone!! I hope you are enjoying your Monday!! Mom had an eye appointment this morning at 8:00AM...yikes!!! Crawling out of bed at 6:30 was kinda hard especially after all the Super Bowl excitement last night!!! Yeaaaaaa!! I was so excited the Steelers won....what an exciting ending!! I loved the comercials, too......Anyway.....

I made this card yesterday afternoon using Taylor's Cupcake #53 sketch, the Our Creative Corner challenge to use 2 or more hearts on a card, and Sharon's Stamp Simple challenge to make a card that focuses on love. The adorable images from Little Paper Shop's Just Bee-cause stamp set were stamped with Ranger Distress Black Soot Ink onto So Saffron cs, cutout, and attached with dimensionals. The bee's wings were colored with a copic and the bee hive was sponged with So Saffron ink.


I used my trusty old Mothermark faux cloud template to create the clouds and the branch is from the new SU Bird on a Branch set. I added the chipboard pink sparklie hearts to qualify for the OCC challenge and bee love qualifies for Sharon's challenge.

The paper is Basic Grey's Urban Prairie and the ribbon and bee brads came from my stash.

Thanks for visiting today.....have a wonderful day!!!

What a totally darling card!!! I LOVE how fun it is, that you incorporated so MANY challenges into it, and that you shared about the clouds -- Mothermark clouds? I surely missed that somewhere along the line - I'll have to check into it!! Thanks so much for playing!!!
