Bee-utiful Day!

Hello, everyone! I hope you all had a good Monday. It was rainy and yucky all day here, but I did get to take DS#2 to the doctor to find out that his collar bone is all healed! Yay, for him! OMGoodness, today, I awoke to my son's saying, "we found the cat, she's in our room!" For reasons beyond me they're a little scared of her, but anyway, she's a cat that kind of adopted us so she mostly stays in the garage. We discovered a bit ago that she is most likely pregnant...she was looking quite thin this morning, so after some searching I found 4 kittens under my sons bed...he has a drawer under there. What a day so far! Ok, ok sorry for the blabbering, here is my card.

The adorable images used on this card are from The Cutting Cafe` our current SMC challenge sponsor. The words are from the Bug Circle Words collection and the bee is from the Cute Critters collection. My card follows the sketch at Paper Sundaes(i did add the embellies to the upper corners)...this is one of my new favs, so simple even I couldn't mess it up, and doesn't it make a nice little card.

Here is a close-up of the little bee. I opted to leave him black and white as I thought it would look good against a yellow sparkly flower...I think I was right. That flower was cut with my Create a Critter cartridge, I put stickles on the bee's wings, and embossed the white paper with my cuttlebug. Ribbon is from Hobby Lobby and the black rhinestones are from Kaisercraft. That's it for me for now, but I'll be back later with pics of the Diaper Cake I made for the baby shower I went to on Sunday.
