bee happy

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I think Mother Nature is loving playing on a see saw with the weather!  Nearly 70 on Monday, 60 yesterday and take a look at the rest of the week

The card I'm sharing today is one that I really like how it turned out, but man it was hard to get a good picture of it so you could see what I see!  I hate when that happens, don't you?  I made this for an online friend who is going to have knee replacement surgery soon.  She also happens to love bees!

The two bees at the top are from a set of three different bees in Bee Set and are by 
Pamela Lehto.  I love them all.  I think they look so happy!  The Bee Happy is by 
Dawn Collins, and it portrays just what I want to say as well as going perfectly with these bees!  

I colored everything with Copic markers and added glitter to the little bee's wings.  I cut the bees out and attached them to some strips of clear acetate so it would make them float and wiggle above the card.  I used wire for their antennae because cutting around antennae is just too hard!

Here's a picture I took of the card laid flat hoping to give you a better look.  

I think she will really like this card, and I hope you do too!  See ya'll tomorrow!

Oh! that weather is a "little" up and down isn't it? The temperatures wouldn't bother me at the moment just would love some sun, instead of rain rain and more rain.

Never mind, your little card is a picca-upper :) if it brought sunshine to me it will bring to your friend also, love that the bees are on acetate, buzzing along :)
