Buzzy Bees

Good morning crafters and what a glorious morning it is here on the Costa del Sol. Temperatures are rising daily now and boy is it hot in the afternoon, pushing 36 degrees which makes for wet, sticky fingers whilst crafting!
Tuesday´s always bring us a challenge from the Creative Card Crew and this week I have set the theme of Childs Play so let us see all your wonderful creations for those little people in your life.
This week Heather from Crafty Addicts has kindly sponsored us, thank you Heather. Don´t forget to check out the DT cards.

It is a long time since I did any decoupage and even longer since I used an A5 card. I think this little bear is thoroughly enjoying his honey and not at all bothered with the bees around his pot, he looks so cool and laid back don´t you think?

I have received this beautiful award from my blogging buddy Chris at A Wellnifty Place, thank you so much for awarding this to me sweetie.

"The Inspirational Award" you can nominate as many blogs as you would like to receive it, put the award on your blog and leave a comment,.. BUT, this is the twist, you have to tell a fact about yourself that no other bloggers know and put it on your blog.My memory fails me at times and it may be weeks before I can thank Chris again if I don´t post this now so will come back when I can think of something DD Marcea may not know as she is also a blogger.
I have pleasure passing this Inspiration award onto Sheila, Sarah and Vicki(basement stamper). Do stop by buddies blogs and feast your eyes on their mega creations.
