"Bee" yourself.

     This week I wanted to play with a new Magnolia stamp, my Copic markers, and make a card with a frame. I also wanted to push myself to find challenges at several blogs to enter my card into.  The sentiment inside says: "Be yourself, everyone else is taken".   
     With the lack of sunshine the other day I reached for some bright colored paper to cheer me up.  You might notice that Tilda and the little bee match!  A big black stripe would have overpowered that little fella.   My original plan was to use some new flowers I made from crinolin, that I saw at the Funkie Junkie blog,  but I liked the shape of these better....having made some of her flowers I look forward to making another card to use them on.  She had a great tutorial on these, and you can use your Copic markers to color them with. 
     I was excited to hear from my friend Pat that there is a Scrapbook convention this weekend over in Illinois and we are going to head over there tomorrow......Stamps by Judith will be there along with many other vendors, hope I don't have too much fun $$$$.
