CAS Bee

DSCF3305

I spent waaaaay too long making this simple bee card….wonder why that happens sometimes?  Anyway, I just quit fooling with it and finished it up; it’s for the Kraft Journal clean and simple challenge #173 and well as the CASology cue card #73 of bee:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Bee Sweetest Moments Stampin

I used several different images (email me if you have questions about which ones!), stamped them on Crumb Cake and since I did about four attempts before being satisfied with what I had, I cut it into a smaller panel and mounted it on a Baked Brown Sugar base.  The bee was stamped on white cardstock, colored with Blendabilities and I sparkled up his wings a bit with Dazzling Diamonds glitter:

Have a fabulous day! 

Cassidy decided to “help” me in the flower bed; it does need help, but not necessarily this type!

A trip to the hose was necessary!
