Bee Costume

Hi,

Well i made it to Birmingham and back in one piece just (well via a services where we had to call out the RAC, but that's another story) !!! - the trip was great, it would have been brilliant but i gained a runny nose, sore throat and blocked sinuses on Friday evening !!!, so most of the time i didn't know what planet i was on !!

I went with a list of 15 items and only managed to find 6 of them !!!  I told myself before i went i was not going to buy anymore PB stamps and i came home with 4 wooden ones (well they were 4 for the price of 3) and a transparent sentiment set that were reduced.

Right onto todays Card and Challenges :

Crafty Catz - where Challenge No: 57 is 'Spots and Stripes'

Taylored Expressions - Sketch Challenge No: 133

Just Cute Bears and Friends - where Challenge No: 39 is 'Black, White and 1 Other Colour' - I went for yellow

Fairy Fun Friday - where Challenge No: 39 is 'Make Your Own Flowers'

Crazy Challenge - where Challenge No: 40 is 'Things With Wings'




Image - Penny Black - 'Bee Costume'
Distressed Image and Flowers with - Tim Holtz - 'Scattered Straw'
Papers - Doodlebug - 'Beetle Black Boutique Assortment'
Punched Edge - Martha Stewart - 'Doily Lace' - I have a love / hate relationship with this punch as 90% of the time, it will not go through bazzill card, but it did today - shock horror !!
Punched Flowers - Stampin Up
Gems - Doodlebug
Ribbon from stash

Thanks for looking, Luv Sam x
