JUST BUZZING BY



First of all, I would like to wish everyone a Happy Memorial Day. Don't forget to thank a Veteran for your freedom today or take time to remember those that lost their lives for our freedom.

Today's card is last week's Mojo Monday Sketch Week 87. If you haven't checked out the Mojo Monday blog, you can check it out here. Here's my take on the sketch. I just love the little bee. Shamefully, I've had this "Just Buzzing By" stamp set for some time and this is the first time these images have been inked up. I used my watercolor pencils with the blender pen to color in the bee and the honey pot. I just had to add the Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the wings and honey. Love that stuff - can't live without it. The sentiment is stamped in craft ink and heat set with white embossing powder.
Would you like to see another take on this sketch? Buzz on over to Dee's blog and check out her card. (All puns intended.)
