Bee Happy

After my little diversion to Christmas time on yesterday's post, it's time ti get back in to Spring today and what better way to do it than with some lovely Bees from Stamps by Judith?

You've just gotta love these little fellas...they are so simple, yet so effective. I know I've said it before but I find it so amazing that an artist can draw a circle , put to well placed dots on it, and create a charming little face with such character. I know that if I was to do  that I would just end up with something resembling a bowling ball!

As you can see, I have kept it really simple for this card. After all, when you're making a bunch of thank you cards you need to be able to knock 'em out quick!

I have coloured the bees very simply with my Spectrum Noirs and added stickler glitter to their wings for a bit of sparkle. The greeting is from my 'staple' greeting stamp set which I always keep close to's from Personal Impressions.

Finally I have done a bot of doodling to create a frame with a fine black marker pen.

Here's another similar card that I made using just one bee this time (sorry about the rubbish picture!)
So - on to today's challenges which are:

Stamptacular Sunday = Spring Fever
Sister Act - Anything Goes
Card Crafters Circle - Bugs
My Time to Craft - Clean and Simple
Pink Gem - Animals
Allsorts - Spring has Sprung

Well it looks like Spring is still in town where I live today and the sun is making an appearance, so I'm off now to make the most of it while it lasts!

Have a lovely Sunday everyone.
