Birthday Bees

Happy easter to you all. I hope you're enjoying the long weekend break and maybe even a choccie egg or two. The sun is shining here in the East Midlands but it's still a bit on the chilly side.

I was lucky enough to win the challenge over at Winter Wonderland the other week and my prize was 2 Wild Rose Studio stamps ( a big thank you to Dulcie and Matthew) and this was one of my choices. It's one of the fabulous new cling stamps called 'Bees with cupcake' and I coloured it with Promarkers. The papers are from Bearly Mine Designs ( a freebie - thanks Donna) and Dovecraft 'Back to Basics'. I wanted to use daisies but as I hadn't got any, nor had I a daisy die, I  had to improvise and I used Cheery Lynn B152 Miniature Rose die with a hole punched yellow dot for the centre. I'm pleased with the way they turned out - they look quite like daisies to me. The sentiment stamp was free with a magazine and the ribbon is  from my stash.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Deep Ocean challenge 'Photo Inspiration' (I was inspired by the colours and flowers - especially the daisies)
That Craft Place challenge 'Animals - including birds, butterflies etc'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Sketchie free for all' ( I picked sketch no. 35)
Charisma Cardz challenge 'Happy Birthday'
Cheery Lynn Designs challenge 'Celebrate'
I Love Promarkers challenge 'Spring is in the Air'
Simon Says Stamp challenge 'Anything Goes'
The Paper Shelter challenge 'Anything Goes'

Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend whatever you may be doing xx
