I've Been a Busy Bee

Coffee of the Day - Irish Creme

Today's sentiment sure does apply to me! I have been quite the busy bee behind the scenes - crafting my little heart out, working on lots of projects to share! :) a few are fairly extensive, so they are taking a bit of time, but they sure are fun! I hope you are doing something in your life that makes your heart sing, sing, sing! afterall, that is what life should be all about, don't ya think?! :)

a new challenge begins today over on the Bugaboo challenge and inspiration blog, with the theme being the fun 'Anything Goes.' pop on by to see what the designers have created! I am having such a good time as a Guest Designer with them. everyone is so kind!

my card uses the precious new Bugaboo Bee 3 image along with a sentiment from the Bees - Busy Bee set. I seem to mix and match quite often from the Bugaboo images! ;) btw - I hope you are getting the Friday Freebies that are so kindly given away every week. I've been collecting these cuties for a long time now. it's one of the reasons I have a nice selection of Bugaboo images on my compy!

**the watermark I've been given by Bugaboo is the little lady in the car. 
it is NOT part of the card.**

papers on my card are from the Basic Grey Urban Prairie collection, flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, seam binding (distressed) and and natural cotton ribbon snippets are from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and buttons are from my vintage stash. coffee cozy was painted with several shades of acrylic paint. wings and antenna on bee were painted with shimmerz. little ticket under sentiment is a found treasure, as is twine tying bow on button. there I go re-purposing stuff again!

enjoy your weekend! thanks so much for stopping by! :)
