Happy Bee-day

Hi everyone. I've managed a bit of crafty time again today and after finding a pile of small size envelopes I cut some white cardstock to make cards approx 4 x 5.25 inches to fit. I thought these would be ideal to give to charity fundraising events so I need to make a good variety and decided to kick things off with a CAS birthday card for a male.

The stamp is WRS called 'bees with cupcake' which I coloured with Promarkers and I used chalks to lightly colour the sky background (but it doesn't show up very well in the photo). I used some scraps of brown card to mount the image and die-cut a star to which I added a peel-off sentiment.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Magnolia-licious challenge 'Boys & guys'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Anything goes - option easter treat holder' (my 2nd entry)
Divas By Design challenge 'Anything goes' (my 2nd entry)
Simon Says Wednesday challenge 'Happy birthday' (my 2nd entry)
Cute Card Thursday challenge 'All boy'
Allsorts challenge 'No flowers'
Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'week 119 use snippets'
A Little Bit Crafty challenge 'The birds and the bees'
Crafty Calender challenge 'Things with wings'
My Mum's Craft Shop challenge 'Anything goes' (my 2nd entry)
The Squirrel and the Fox challenge 'All creatures great and small'

I intend to put my feet up this evening and watch 'The Hobbit' part 1 dvd to remind myself of the storyline before I go and buy part 2 tomorrow. Now when I opened the dvd case I found I still had the code to download the movie for free (UK only) which is valid until 8 April 2015. I will never need this so if there are any of my UK followers who would like this (for your own use only) please leave me a message to let me know if you'd like it and I'll pass it on to one of you.
