Have had one of those days, I mean WEEKS!!! Hopefully next week will be MUCH better. ANYWAY, I needed to de-stress big time so here is what I did. I made this card for three challenges once again.....details...
First off, this is for the QFTD challenge where Mary, aka octoberbabe is our new queen. I cased this card loosely, I might add. Changed her sentiment into a chubby bee. Mary you have a fabulous gallery. Enjoy your reign!
Second this is for the F4A challenge. I chose to use bright colors because they just make me happy! My bg was made using my new gelli plate which I am loving!!! It is just so cool and tons of fun. For extra points we were to put a bee on our cards.
I had a large Plum Purdy bee stamp that I put on shrinky dink paper and shrunk him down. Fits perfectly on my card. hehe
Third, finally, this is for the MIX challenge, which I am really enjoying. I have been drawn to the Mixed Media so this challenge was right up my alley. Today we were to use script of some kind and the color red.
I put tape on a page in the phone book and ripped it off taking the script with it. Then I glued the tape on scraps of red gelli printed paper.
I made my flower out of newspaper, more script, sponging different reds on it.
Well, I feel much better. Hope you enjoy my card. Have a great weekend!....TFL :0)

This is a fun card Cathy!! I'm glad you were able to destress by making a card!! I like the different prints in the banner type items. Your bumble bee is fun, and I can't believe you made a shrinky dink. :>)

Wow, talk about stepping out of the box - quite a change from a Curt card, yet very modern art-ish!! Love these bright colors - make me yearn for spring!!
Sent you a PM too!
