Good Morning Ladies ~ How do you feel about bees?

I was very productive yesterday.  When I finally got going I was able to make 4 of my 10 Minute Creations videos.  I am set for the month of June!  Recording the videos is not bad but then I have to upload them to iMovie and after I get them set up, I have to export it to my external hard drive so I have it saved on somewhere else besides my computer.  After I get it on my hard drive I have to Upload it to You Tube.  These steps can take some time so I try to get them done long before I have to post them.  I will be working on those steps over the next few days!

My card today began with a sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.    

I love the 3 images in the lower left hand corner.  I wanted to do something other than flowers so I started looking through my stamp sets.  I found a cut bee in Touches of Texture so I decided to use it.  I stamped it 3 times.  I then used the Eastern Beauty stamp set to add the circles around the bees.  The bees were colored with a Basic Black, Crushed Curry, and Soft Sky markers.  The bees were punched out with the 1 1/4" circle punch.  The 1 3/8" circle punch was used to punch out circles in the same colors used to color the bees.  These were layered and dimensionals were added to the back.  I used a piece of Crushed Curry and the Hexagon embossing folder to create the main panel.  It was added to a piece of Basic Black card stock using Tear & Tape.  This element was added to a Whisper White card base.  I then added the 3 bees using dimensionals.  Here is my creation.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  I am headed to a friend's house for a play date.  I am so looking forward to it.  Have a Super Saturday and did you like my Bees?
