PDCC # 178 ~ Bee Well!

LOST...SPRING...if found, please return to Ohio!!! I don't know about the rest of you, but 30 degrees in late April is unacceptable. I want my chirpy little birds and pretty little daffodils to wake up to a warm sunshiny morning! Sorry had to get that out, it's just too cold today. After a chilly walk with Max and a bit of a lazy start I thought I might get to work on a card. I haven't been at the Play Date Cafe in far too long, so I put a card together to play along this week.


I'm not a fan of hot pink, but look at me two cards in a row! Hot pink, shade and lightning yellow are their colors of choice. I decided to go playful and pulled out a few neglected stamps. This sweet little flower stamped in Memento rose bud ink is from Impress. I nestled a couple of buttons between the blooms and topped them off with an embossed yellow panel. Don't know where I got this paper, probably Joann, but it was already embossed. I've seen this cute banner shape in blogland and don't have a die, so I cut my own! The sentiment is by DRS. I am smitten with this bumble bee (Outline Stamps), isn't he cute! I stamped him an extra pair of wings on vellum and attached just the end with a a Quickie glue pen. I really like the movement this created. Hot pink gems, I can handle those, so I sprinkled on a few!

That's it for me today,  I'm off to make a steamy pot of potato soup to warm our bones ~ Lisa

So cute! Love those bright blooms. I am in PA, so I am right with you when it comes to wondering where spring is. So glad you could join us for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge!

No kidding! It's crazy! I am such a wimpy girl too...(having grown up in Florida and living in Hawaii for 9 years) I am ready for some warmer temps.

Now this card is just the sweetest most delightful card ever! It put a big smile on my face, and I have needed those more and more lately! I can only imagine the sweet look on the recipients face when they receive it!

Michelle said...

Lisa, this card has amazing written all over it! From the bee winds, to the sequins to the pennant...the whole card is totally awesome!
