Bee Costume


This is going to be a really quick post, as we are going to RHS Wisley today to see the Butterflies in the glasshouse, as H has an inset day. Tomorrow after some time of waiting, i'm having an MRI scan done on my right knee to finally find out what's going on, yipee.

When i first saw the Penny Black At Allsorts colour challenge bingo for this month, i thought there is no way i can do that, then last weekend, it came to me, yes i could do it and why had i not thought about it before, as the middle row of 'Yellow, Black and White' - to me refers to only 1 PB stamp and that is the one i'm using today, it's just so perfect for the job.  Now the reason i didn't make this card earlier in the week was because i had to order some wide black lace. The papers are the reliable 'Doodlebug' and in fact the yellow one is aptly named 'Bumblebee' !!

PS - you asked about the papers on my card. I'm sorry but I don't know. It was a sheet I have had for a very,very long time and there is no name on it.

Jules said...

Hi Sam

What a great card.

I love that Penny Black image.

Your colour combo certainly made for a "bee"autiful finished card (sorry I just "had" too). LOL!!!

I hope your scan went OK and that you don't have to wait too long for the results.

Have a good Sunday.

Love Jules xx
