Been Buzzzy with Bee Happy

Hi all,  hopefully I can get this posted without my comp crashing, DH thinks now he going to have to wipe it clean and start from scratch!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, our visitors have gone and getting ready for Edward's mum arriving at the weekend, Rosanna and Morgan are so excited.  They haven't seen her for two years, though I have to say only seems like a few months, time is flying by way, way tooooo fast!

Back to crafting you still have until Saturday to enter our Mad for Markers colouring a digi image, using your Copics, we are sponsored by Spesch Stamps with a prize of $10.00 to Tracey's Store.  Don't forget to pop over and see our Guest Designers for October.

Today I have used CJ's Image Bee Happy image.  For my background I have used SU From The Garden stamp and heat embossed using lilac embossing powder.  Also used various stickles, kindyglitz, flowersoft, MS border punch.  You can only imagine how sticky I got lol!  How long does this stuff take to dry!!  It's my posse 's turn to give you the heads up over at the ranch for our new challenge starting on Sunday 17th is to create your own background and to use Alison's lovely sketch.  Our sponsor this week is Michelle Perkett details of the prizes will be on the blog Sunday.  You still have time to enter this weeks challenge to use Pearls, the colour pink with green or purple.

 Have made these flowers from the digi image and layered them

How cute is he, used special effects on his eyes

Have put the thank you sentiment on the inside the front look busy enough
