OK so today I am so tired from working all week and then I get out in the yard for 2hrs last night working on the walkway to the pool and helping dh get ready to build my pool deck and get overheated. I kept saying "OK I need to stop" but kept right on working. Not a smart move:( When I did get inside I was red as a beet and so nauseated. Jessie made me lie down with a cool cloth on my head and glass of water. My mind must have gotten fried because this morning when I read the title of the IC Kleenex all I could see was that bee from the Nasonex ad and hear his voice (ooh how I just love that accent) so this may be stretching it a bit but I have had this set for ever and soooo wanted to use it. The colors on the box under Holiday Penguins were part of my inspiration as well so if it is allowed this is for today's INSPIRATION CHALLENGE - Kleenex. For my layout I am using today's SKETCH SATURDAY # 48. I love this layout, so fun to work with. I cut out then embossed my image layer and matt using nesties circles and scallop circles then stamped the bee hive in black brilliance and colored it with copics. I stamped the chicken wire background (bc it is as close as I could get to honey comb) in black on white then chaulked it. I used my Fiskars scallop with holes border punch. The popped up bee was stamped in black, colored with copics and cut out. I did all 3 of the bees from this set and since you only see 1 of them you are correct if you are thinking I must have not cut the other 2 out. Gess I love cutting but that one was so much of a pain and my carpal tunnel started acting up so I stopped with the 1. He is MIGHTY BEE, and he can make all the honey anyone could want. LOL. Have a great weekend.
