Bee Happy!

     Today I have a card I made during the winter months, and never posted.  Today the Challenge # 450, at Little Red Wagon is called To Bee or not to Bee!  Well isn't that just perfect!  It paid off making spring goodies during the doom and gloom months.

     I am going to do my best to remember everything I used.  My card base is Lemon Drop for Gina K. Designs, with a white layer stamped using a SU! background stamp.  My flowers and deckle panels are both from Spellbinders, and my adorable stamp set is from Honey Bee Stamps, called Build A Bee.  I used distress Ink on the flowers, bee, and panels.  I also added a few scattered dots with a Stamps by Judith stubby stamps.  I added burlap ribbon, gold brads, and some Diamond Stickles to the bee's wings.

     Another gorgeous day here in PA.  I am taking it all in, since they are saying temps will be feeling in the 100's by Monday!  Yikes!  Our bodies are not made to do 50 degree drops and climbs like that.
Whatever you do this weekend, please enjoy.

What a sweet card with that honeybee, and I love the background stamp you used for it too! I agree, this weather is a surprise on a daily basis! One day the a/c is on, the next day we're wearing hoodies to stay warm, and the next day it's like today - warm breezes where you want to open the windows and let the fresh air in! I'm confused on a daily basis as to what I should be wearing to accommodate the weather!

Y'all sure can go from hot to cold quick. Sounds like Texas!
Love your sweet card and that bee is adorable! I think he must be smiling because warmer weather has finally hit.

Your card is delightful! The muted tones are fabulous and I just love that wonderful sentiment!

Our weather has been up and down too!

Such a cute card, Mary Anne! I love your creativity! This sweet little bee just makes me smile along with the pretty flowers and I love that tree ring background (I just got that)! One fantastic card that is just perfect for sunshiny days like today! I'm not looking forward to 90's & 100's that is coming next week so I will definitely enjoy the weather today! TFS
