Flying By to Say Hi

"If cats could talk, they would lie to you."
                             -------Rob Kopack

Hi, Friends.....

I am back with another MFP Sketch With a Twist challenge card.  This week's twist was Travel and I did my own little twist on that theme, choosing to go with a little bee traveling to the recipient instead of a bon voyage sort of card where the recipient is the one who will be traveling.

I used my Lawn Fawn - Into the Woods set for the tree.  The stamp is not this long, so I overlapped the ends and hid the "seams" with my signs.  :)  The line of hearts is also from this set.

I opened up, for the first time, my TAWS - Speak Easy set that I won awhile back (THANKS, TAWS!!) and did a wee bit of stamp surgery.  The Flying by to Say Hi had been all in one long segment.  I cut it in two for making this card.  I could have masked, but this was easier.  I like easier!!!  :)  The little bee is one I've had for ages.....part of a set, but I have long forgotten which one.

I heat embossed the tree in Clear Bark and the other images in black.  I colored my sweet little bee and traced her flight path with Sakura Gel Pens, including a sparkly one over white for the wings.  :)





Here's the sketch I used from this week's MFP Sketch With a Twist.







Hope you like my card.  I think it turned out really cute....and did you notice I am *still* using my yellow scraps???  :)  Thank you for buzzing by my blog and leaving your sweet as honey comments!! 


 
Oh, and I nearly forgot.........

My Crocus Card (one of my personal favorites) was honored by Eclectic Ellapu (what even is an ellapu???) as a Runner Up in their Spring Challenge.  I am thrilled because I really love this card.  



Eclectic Ellapu has some really fun Runner Up Badges, so it was difficult to choose which one I wanted.  But I finally decided on this one:


Isn't it pretty?  Love it.  THANKS, Eclectic Ellapu!!!

Have a lovely day, everyone!

    1. Thank you, Diane!! You sweet comment is very much appreciated!

      I am curious abt the email you sent me.....I never received it. Did you use my form on the sidebar here? Somebody else told me recently that it didn't work for them. Not sure what is going on. Also, another friend sent me an email from her regular email account and I never received it, either. Weird. Please try resending your note to me. Thanks!!!
