Summer Time! #121 A Sassy Challenge

Sassy Cheryl's, Bentley Bears Bee Fortune

I don’t know about where you live, but Summer entered Ohio like a swarm of bees… BAM! Hot! and the humidity level increased too, ugh!

It’s my turn this week to host our  
Sassy Challenge!
Yippee!! A real ‘open’ challenge… Summer! Whatever it means to you!

Play along with us, you don’t have to use a Sassy Cheryl’s image, but IF you do, you’ll have another chance at winning 2 free digis from Cheryl!

Sassy Cheryl's, Bentley Bears Bee Fortune This is a fairly new image, Bentley Bear’s Bee Fortune. I just LOVE the look on his face! LOL, remember Pooh Bear… “Hello Beezzzz”, and, “I’m just a little black rain cloud, hovering over your honey tree”.
It’s a ‘long-tall’ card that fits in a business size envelope.

Anyhoo… it’s colored with Copics. I die cut the bees out separately with Spellbinders Persian Accents and sponged with Scattered Straw Distress ink while still in the die, then hand cut the 2 bees not in the die, lined them up with their antenna and popped them up. The sentiment is from Whipper Snapper, Bee-lieve In A Cure.

I had fun with my Memory Box dies, Fancy Blossoms, Cheery Blossom (DTP with Color Box Rouge ink), Estate Fence, Grassland Border and Puffy Clouds (sponged with Faded Jeans Distress ink). I also ran the flowers and lower part of grass through the Cuttlebug with Polka Dots and Swiss Dots embossing folders.

This is going to be hard card to send to someone… I’m in love with it and don’t want to part with it! LOL! It’s going to have to be someone reeeeally special!!
