Happy Monday, peeps! It is a gorgeous morning, no rain in sight and my grass is a foot high, so I guess I know what I'll be doing later today! For my card today, I am squeaking in the City Crafter Challenge of "Honey, I'm Home" (use bees), as well as the Match the Sketch:
I have LOTS of bee stamps, because I just love bees and what they do for the garden! The sets I used here are from Darcie's Heart and Home, along with some miscellaneous papers floating around on my desk:
I did some random collage-style stamping on the honeycomb background paper:
then I stamped the beehive on some pale yellow DSP , fussy-cut it out and added some shading (and some ink blotches from a messy Hello Honey inkpad 🙁🙁):
then stamped and colored in the frame and sentiment, fussy-cut it and popped it up:
I also added some sequins and a diecut border embellishment, then finished the inside:
I mounted it on a Crumb Cake base and it's all ready for someone's "Bee-day"
I also wanted to share with you a little favor my sweet friend Linda made for her stamp club girls; it's a little beach bag filled with an umbrella and some other goodies:
It is so sweet!! Thanks Linda, and thank you for popping in today! Be sure to stop back tomorrow for a new Retro Rubber challenge!!
