Buzzing Bumble Bee's

Good morning.. :-) have you been over on CCT Challenge blog? oh my gosh.. the Challenge Deb set for this week to follow is so great :-0 something funny and get the blues out :-) iam definitely feeling a little blue because of our weather here. Michigan's winters are soooo long and this year we have a strong cold winter. For my card i choose this cute Alota Rubberstamps image. Believe it or not :-) this image was actually the one how i have found Alota :-) I think this image is just so fun to look at :-) Coloring of the bees is so easy - not many colors are needed to color the images in. If you don't have yet many Copic's you will be fine with just a basic color selection and your Blender pen! If you have not seen all the new Martha Stewart punches yet.. you could click on the picture to see it a bit bigger and take a closer look at the Mini heart scalloped border i used for this card.

Stamps: Alota Rubberstamps, Stampin up for sentiment
DP/CS: Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, Cloud 9 Designs
Embellishments: Prima Flowers i got from my sweet friend Tina (check out her site- she made the other day an AMAZING scene card!!!!) , Making Memories big brads, Hodgepodge Hardware, Stickles, Kiwi Kiss/Vanilla double sided ribbon
Coloring: Copic Sketch


I got this blog award from sweet Danielle :-) thank you so much.. i love butterflies :-)
