What's The Buzz?

Friday is finally here and I couldn't be more ready for the weekend. How about you? Wednesday night I was working on a birthday card for a lady I know who loves everything to do with bees. I just finished the card up yesterday morning and was getting it ready to mail when I checked out Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge which happened to be "things with wings"! How fortuitous was that?

My card uses a Squigglefly image called Busy Bee by Bonita Jones. It comes with a sentiment, but I created my own on my computer. I popped the bee up on a homemade wobble spring and it looks so cute! It looks like it's really buzzing about!  I added stickles to the wings and even though the photo doesn't show it well, I colored the sky with chalk.  It's a super quick, but really cute card don't you think?

There's still time to play in Squigglefly's blog challenge - and you've got a good chance to win if you use a Squigglefly image because we haven't had many players this week!
