I Bee-lieve In You . . .

 Happy Sunday Friends!

Today I was inspired by a couple of challenges offered over on Paper Playful so I've combined them and come up with this cute encouragement card.  Those challenges are:

Just Us Girls Challenge #579 - Trend Week

 I have used two stencils on my creation ... Memory Box 'Texture Honey Comb' (#88521)

and My Favorite Things 'Cloud Stencil' (#ST-099).

and the new challenge over at Allsorts which is themed 'Butterflies/Birds/Bees' (one or all).  I chosen to use my favorite Hero Arts Bees from one of their earlier kits.  Love these little guys!  LOL


 I have used a Stampscapes stamp called 'Leafy Branch' (#277F) to add dimension to the scene.  My Hero Arts bees have been popped up using dimensional tape.

Other challenges to share in:

Daring Cardmakers - Let Hear it for the Bees
Festive Friday Challenge #FF0081 - Blue, Tree, Clouds

I hope you're having a wonderful weekend.  It sure has been a BEAUTIFUL week here in Ohio this week!  Hubby & I got lots of stuff done outside each day and have a good start on our Spring Clean Up.  Felt so good to get out into the sunshine & fresh air!  

Please help us end this pandemic by getting your vaccine when eligible and
please, please wear a mask when out in public!



  1. LOVE this card. I am so partial to bees. I wanted that HA kit and it got sold out too fast. It's a really good one. Your design here is so wonderful, I can't stop looking at it.

  2. Ohhh, I sure do love this! Making a note to search the stencil as I believe I need a good honeycomb stencil. Such a beautiful summer card, Darlene!

  3. What a cute card. We need our bees here in the U.S.

    Thanks for the PSA about the vaccines and masks. We are not victorious yet. [Bunny]

  4. Bee-utiful Darlene. Such a happy card will sure bring a someone to one lucky recipient.
    Keep well.

  5. Loving your Bees buzzing around the Spring skies, many thanks for joining in with our 'Butterfield, Birds and Bees' theme at Allsorts challenge this week.
