You're the Bee's Knees!

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice

It's a touch on the cool side here today. that is okay by me, but I did get up in the middle of the night to keep adding layers to warm me up! Spent yesterday on our annual shopping trip to Grove City, PA to the big outlet mall there. it was my first time out of my house in over 6 weeks. quite the big adventure! of course I am whooooped from the excursion, but it was nice to spend the day school shopping with everyone. I'm supposed to go on the trip to Indiana to take Ryan to school, but we'll see how I've recovered in the next week. oh, the joys of being icky sicky.

Imagine my surprise when I popped by the Inky Antics blog this morning and found another one of my cards shown with several from their wonderful DT. Jackie is featuring the oh, so cute stamp set, 'Bumbly Bees.' the first time I saw these stamps, they made me smile! :)

I used Basic Grey Urban Prairie papers, a great crocheted flower from Prima, little bag from Whisker Graphics, buttons from my stash (one I scuffed up a bit with sandpaper), a doily, and finally an itty bitty clothespin that I lightly inked. stitching is done with the 'Sew Many Stitches' stamp set. I've told you how much I love that stamp set! I'm sorry I don't know the mfg. of the rose. it was part of a blog candy I won. I added some shimmerz paint to the bee's wings for a bit of sparkly shine. black acrylic paint was added to the edges of the main image.

you still have until tonight to link up for a chance to win the cute 'BBQ Time' stamp set. check out the post here for all of the information.
