The Beary Sweet Challenge - May Flowers

Happy Tuesday Friends!  Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  I spent my weekend at the store recovering from a root canal on Friday.  Drinking coffee was an interesting experience to say the least.  Thank goodness we had a full house of PMS Scrappy Croppers on Saturday night and not Friday.  I can honestly say that today is the first day I haven't been in pain in some time.  Thanks Dr. Scott Watkins!

Today I am sharing with you my inspirational piece for our Beary Sweet Challenge taking place right now on our Desingers Blog.  Yesterday, Susan displayed some gorgeous flowers she made for her card.  Swing over there and check them out if you get the chance.  They are really easy to make.

So, what do May Flowers bring?  BZZZZ! That's right, pesky bees.  Can you tell I'm not a fan of bees?  Let me rephrase that...  I despise bugs!  If it has more than four legs, chances are it's going to get squashed!  Even so, bees are what makes our flowers bloom and our gardens grow.  Our world could not sustain without bees.  As long as they keep away from me, it's all good here.   I love what they do for our planet. 

My card today was inspired by this adorable Magnolia Honey Bee Tilda Stamp.  When I decided to use this stamp, the first line of paper that jumped out at me is the new Queen Bee Collection by Pink Paislee.  Oh, I love the colors and the prints.  It was hard to decide which papers to use.

I used a few of our new Beary Sweet Floral rose flowers in white and inked them up with some color box fluid chalks.  Our new floral line is in test production at this time and will be available as soon as we work out all of the bugs (no pun intended *wink*).  I love using white flowers because you can easily create the color you need for your project.  I had a few little flowers in my stash that I used to fill in the gaps a bit.  Then I tucked in a few leaf sprays to fill it out.  Lastly, I applied a bit of Stardust Stickles Glitter Glue for some sparkle.

I hope you've enjoyed by card today.  I was very excited to find the time to play along with the girls this week.  If you would like to take The Beary Sweet Challenge, click HERE for the details and enter your project for a chance to win a $20.00 gift certificate to The Beary Scrap!  We are really enjoying all the beautiful entries we've received so far.  Keep them coming!  You are all so inspiring!!!

Don't forget, our Blog Candy  is open until Wednesday, May 5.  You still have time to enter.

Be sure to come back tomorrow when Elise makes her debut with our Beary Creative Girls.  You will adore what she has to share with you!
