Just Buzzin By...

I've had this Penny Black stamp called Beehave for a while now.  I just haven't found the right situation until now to use it.  I used The Pixie Cottage Challenge #16 sketch and The Color Dare CD64 color challenge.

There were a few challenges that the theme was spring or summer and nothing reminds me more of summer coming up than just laying out in the sun and soaking it all in.  Now in Arizona you don't want to do it for very long when summer is here or you will die of a heat stroke or end up as red as a strawberry and hurting for sometime.   I'm going to save this card for just  the right occasion to send someone a very special note.

The back ground paper is from American Crafts - BookShelf.  I think it's called TruleyInspring.  The other DP is from a small pack called Flower Shower Spring Matstack.  The ribbon is felt and I found it in the dollar bin at the big "M" craft store.  The saying "just buzzin by to say...." is from my Stampin Up set called Just Buzzin By.  So app-pa-pro.. huh.

The other challenges:
 Whimsical Wednesday -Spring 

Sweet Stampin Challenge #24 - it's summer
The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #81  - Friendship
Pollycraft #42 - here comes the sun.
Lilly of the Valley #52 - Here comes the summer
Incy Wincy Design #40 - Anything goes

p.s. So sorry for the picture quality.  Normally they're better than this.
