RS #157 & NBUS #4 ~ Get Well!

Hidy ho bloggy friends! We have a beautiful sunny day here in Ohio, buts it's cold, about 30. Nonetheless, that sun sure does lift one's spirits and bring the hope of spring flowers peeking their happy faces out at us sometime soon! 

I have a whimsical little number I put together for two challenges today. Darnell has a new NBUS Challenge up and running. This is number 4 for my sweet friend and I know it will be another huge success! For inspiration I turned to this week's Retro Sketch.



I've used three Pretty Pink Posh dies on this card. The new Stitched Banner Duo Picket Fence (this one is my NBUS!) and Stitched Borders 1. The stamps making up my scene are Impression Obsession: tree branch and Stamps by Judith: bees, hive & sentiment. PPP sequins (4mm Aquamarine & 6mm Marigold) are standing in as the buds on my tree. I layered a couple of them with a big flower from the Springtime Mix to anchor the sentiment. 



Thanks for popping by ~Lisa

This is so sweet Lisa...the little stamped scene reminds me a little "Winnie the Poohish" Love it to bits.

I agree the sun is glorious and shifts spirits no doubt. I am a self proclaimed solar powered girl.

Fantastic and sweet scene you have created here. And, I don't normally like bees, but yours look pretty friendly. Love that curve on your banner--adds an interesting twist.
