Sorry to be so quiet lately. The “day job” has been taking over life a bit. I did have a moment to create a card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge and our fab sketch by the awesome Karren Johnson.
I know it comes as a shock that my first thought for the circle was a flower. But I decided I’d give another idea a go instead. I love this little honey jar from Honey Bee Stamps and they really do have the best little bees (naturally). Using my Copic Markers, I colored up all the elements and then chose some flowers from a different set. Didn’t have too but I just liked the flowers better for what I wanted on this. I love when art styles are complementary and you can mix and match!
I did realize that this Just Beecause set might be retiring so if you love it, I linked below where it is still available. The sweet gingham paper was sitting on my table and I thought it was just right for the panel on the sketch design. And I just love this little sentiment the set. A few punny little “bee” sentiments that are just such fun.
I hope you are having a wonderful week. Come over and join us if you have some crafty time! We’d love to see what you create. Hoping to have a little more time in the craft room this week but we’ll see. All the crazy weather in the system has kept me pretty busy and when I get home I’m zapped. My goal is just some coloring time, which is ALWAYS a good plan. Thanks for stopping in. See you soon!
What a charming stamp – and extra cute in the way you layered it up!!
Super cute card–love the bee theme!!
That honey pot looks fabulous and works perfectly with the gingham strip! Such a gorgeous card. I hope you get more crafty time soon!
Your coloring is wonderful – this is gorgeous!
