Hap-Bee Birthday

Good Morning Everyone and Happy Friday!

I hope you all have had a good week and that your weekend be awesome!  I would like to start out by sharing some good news in that I have accepted a new DT position at Magnolia Mania.  I have just been itching to share that!  LOL!  And though I swore up and down that I have enough on my plate already, I couldn't help but take the opportunity to work with my favorite stamps on a more regular basis.  Each challenge will start on the 1st and 15th of each month and seeing as how today is the 15th...

I have for you my first DT entry and our challenge theme is PEARLS & LACE.
I've had this one in my head for a while now and am pleased at how it came together.  Honeybee Tilda is colored up with Distress Inks and sits atop her hive like the queen she is.  The bees are made from woodsies that I've had for years and years.  I've used half eggs and hearts that I painted up, antiqued and then brushed with Perfect Pearls.  I made the flowers to match my patterned paper, again, using Distress Inks.  I'm so sad that I didn't make my sentiment to say Hap-Bee Birthday.  By the time I realized it, it was too late and I had already nailed everything down.  SIGH!!!

Anyway, I want to tell you about the prize you can win by entering the Magnolia Mania challenge.  A 10 pound voucher (which I believe is in the vicinity of about $14 us) is being offered up by Bastelmuehle (The Craft Mill).  I went on their site for the first time today and and am excited to have found a new place to shop.

Thank You So Much for stopping by.  The supplies I've used for my card are listed at the bottom of this post.  Have a great day, and better tomorrows!

♥ Laura C.
