bee's knees

I actually made two cards yesterday but I love how cute and simple this one is so I had to show you guys! This is a set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Bee Happy. The first thing that drew me to this set was the sentiment on this card. I just love the innocence in that sentiment. The flower is cute and there are a couple of different bees and sentiments for thank yous, thinking of you, and such. A pretty versatile set! Anyway, The paper is all from PaperTrey Ink. Oh, and the ribbon too. I'm not sure if I used Adirondack or Palette ink but either get the idea! There is glitter on the bee and the center of the flower. I wanted to use beads in the center of the flower but couldn't find them...darn it! Oh, and the layout is from a card that Charmaine made yesterday. I did do one thing to this card after I took the picture and that is that I rounded the two bottom corners with my corner imagine it that way! Laughing 8 you remember my wine journal? Tonight is the night I get to use it! The wine tasting is from 5 - 8 but we don't stay the whole time 'cuz we have to go get dinner you know! Todd asked if it could be a little dress up thing for us so I think I'm going to wear my Mother's Day outfit (minus the flowers) but we'll see.

Today is supposed to be a scorcher...95 degrees! Tomorrow...92 degrees! Yikes! I think the water slide might need to come out tomorrow!

I hope you have a super Friday! Would you all go out and do something nice for someone else today?
