Bee Happy! Summer's Here!

Summer is officially here, can you believe it? I don't know about you, but here the summer weather has been sloooow in coming. My kids are finally out of school and it seems like the weather has taken notice. Today was actually quite warm. Good thing, too. My two oldest kids started swim lessons today and I was a little concerned that the weather may not cooperate. It was their first time and they were a little nervous but they both loved it.
Maybe this heat will bring on the strawberries and tomatoes out in my garden! I can hardly wait!
Being an SU demonstrator, I usually spend my hobby funds on SU supplies (they really are fabulous!) but I just couldn't pass up this bee stamp from Stampendous Stamps. It is part of their "Bee Happy" line of stamps. Too cute! I stamped the image in Basic Black ink and then used my Blender Pens to color it in with So Saffron and Blue Bayou. I punched him out with my 1 3/8" circle punch and backed it with a Certainly Celery scalloped circle. The flower was cut from my original stamped image. I used my Basic Black Stampin' Write marker to extend the stem and then popped the flower up on a dimensional. I used some Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the image and the So Saffron brads. I also paper peirced around the Soft Sky layer. This one was fun to give away!
