just bee cause

Hi everyone! Are you having a great weekend so far? Squigglefly has a brand new release today that may make your weekend even better! I'm working on a card that uses one of the new releases, but for now I'm sharing a card that I made for Mothermark's Teaparty on Splitcoast Stampers this week. The story is that Bee-anca is a bee that has a bird friend named Bree who is being bullied by a big bee. Bee-anca found out that the bully bee is allergic to daisies, so all the teapotters were asked to bring daisies to the teaparty to make the bully sneeze enough to bring him to his knees so he could no longer bully poor Bree.

I happened to think that Flower Love Bee was the perfect image to use for my teaparty card.

I colored him with Copic markers and chalk and then added a bit of yellow flocking to his body. The background was done with one of the impressabiliites from Spellbinders. I computer generated the sentiment.

Yesterday Ashley came for a short visit. We went out to lunch and then she helped me pick out some new clothes for my new job. After our trip to the mall we came home and played games with Chesney and her husband. It was fun family time and so good to have my family together even for such a short visit.

Today I am planning on getting some meal preparation done, and then maybe hit another store or two for some more work clothes. I also plan on going to the hospital to visit that new grand baby my best friend just welcomed to the world! I hope all of you have a wonderful day, and thanks for looking!

WOW... this looks FABULOUS! I agree, the image is perfect for the teaparty and that background looks amazing! The flocking really adds texture too! I Iove the bright, cheery colors you chose also!

I'm so glad y'all had a fun family night! Nothing like having your baby home for some good quality time together, especially when they help you shop! What fun!
