Just Because

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! We had beautiful weather for Easter Sunday – bright and sunny with a light breeze. We spent the day with my parents. I picked up carry out from Outback Steakhouse and then we spent the day putting together puzzles and playing games. Carryout for Easter dinner would have been sacrilegious in my family in the past, but this way, we all got to enjoy the day with no one stuck in the the kitchen preparing a big meal.

As you can see, I’m still in love the bees from Honey Bee Stamps. This simple idea popped into my head, in part inspired by the “think pink” theme for Buzzworthy Challenge still going on until the end of the month. I masked off a vertical stripe on my card and stenciled the cloud pattern with distress inks. I stamped the sentiment with Versafine in and heat set it with clear embossing powder. I added the bees as well as a slightly studied but still mostly random selection of dew drop embellishments.
