House Mouse and Real Life Bees

Hi everyone!

A group of friends over on SCS have a weekly challenge. This week's challenge was to use Black, Gray or Silver, Yellow and Crystal Effects if we had it. We also were to create our own catchy sentiment. I don't have CE but I used Shimmerz (Angel's Wings) on my wings and antennaes. While you can't see the shimmer in the photo.... I sure did like how the real life bee wanted to be in this photo. He landed on my lilies as I was photographing this and I was thrilled!

I colored my image with Prisma Pencils and blended with Odor Free Mineral Spirits. The bow was made using the Bow Easy. The sentiment I came up with is on the inside and says "You couldn't BEE sweeter". I added a little bling and done. Just a fast fun one this week. I made this early this morning before I picked up my Grand Kids as I knew once they got here no stamping was going to happen here until next week! LOL! I love having them... we are having a blast!

Thanks for taking a peek!

I like your little bee friend, obviously he wanted to see if he could make friends with the two bunnies masquerading as bees. And I also have to say that being on EST, if you really posted this two hours ago, you are up too late and need your rest! :) Especially if you are going to keep up with the energy those precious little ones add to a house.

Enjoy your grands! I had a little one-on-one time with Ellie yesterday and she so enjoyed not having to share my time with her brother! Have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs and blessings for you!

This is gorgeous Grace!! Love those adorable bees (Can't believe I am saying bees are adorable! LOL! Not in real life.) Your use of black with the yellow makes it pop!

What a great card, Grace! What a sweet way God is saying hello to us with the little visiting bee! Thanks so much for your recent advice and encouragement. I will take it gladly! Hey did you change your website? It looks great! I noticed your daily Bible verse and love it so much that I put one on my blog! TFS!

What cuteness! Just fabulous coloring! And what an awesome little surprise for that bee to land there in your photo, that just made me smile! Before I finished reading, I thought to myself "How long did she have to wait for a bee to land there before taking her photo?" LOL
