what's the buzz....?

Hello friends!!  Got to make a card today!!  I used to make cards every single day, but now I don't.  Sometimes I don't make a card all week... just depends on how I'm feeling.   And today I felt like making a card.  I'm going to try to make another one later this evening... we shall see how that goes!   Anywhoo.... this card is for the current ColourQ challenge, as well as CAS(e) this Sketch


The other day I needed some inspiration for a card I needed to make and so I took a little drive to my favorite stamp store, Impress Rubber stamps.   While I was there I spotted a set of embossing folders from LifeStyle Crafts that I just had to buy.  One of the folders has a honeycomb design and the other little bees... too cute!  I used the honeycomb folder for my card, as well as a cute little set from The Craft's Meow called Thanks Bee to Thee.   This week's ColourQ combo was a bit of a challenge for me to find good color matches, but I think I succeeded.  I used cardstock from PTI, Close to My Heart, Bazzill and Stampin Up!  The hexagons were cut with a set of Taylored Expressions Hexagon Stacklets from the Bazzill and PTI cardstocks.  When I originally finished there were only three hexagons, but then I looked at the sketch, again, and decided I needed to add one more.  In retrospect I think I should have left it off.  Oh well... 

Thanks for stopping by....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI, Stampin Up!, Bazzill & Close to My Heart; Ink:  Memento Rich Cocoa; Stamps:  The Craft's Meow; Embossing Folder:  LifeStyle Crafts
