Bee Happy! --- Get Inky! Challenge #15

Happy Monday, to all crafty friends and family !!! 

I am here today with some inspiration for you.  But first, I want to tell you some exciting news . . . I was asked a week ago if I would like to be a guest designer for Get Inky! Stamps thru to the end of the year.  How exciting is that?!?!   I am so excited and honored I am to have been asked to be a Guest Designer for Get Inky! Stamps.  So THANK YOU, Thia, for this wonderful opportunity!!!

As many of you know, I just LOVE Get Inky! stamps . . . they are so versatile and so cute!!!  And because they are so versatile, I was able to use the "Buzzing Bees" stamp set on a fall card for this week's challenge on Get Inky! Challenge blog. (NOTE:  Make sure to read to the end to see how you can be eligible to win a $15 gift certificate to Get Inky! Stamps from ME . . . just a little something to say "Thanks!")

Okay, on to the challenge . . . the current challenge on the Get Inky! Challenge blog is a Fall or Halloween card with buttons.  At first, I was unsure what I was going to do because I don't have the Get Inky! Stamps "Halloween Spooktacular 2013" stamp set (it is actually the only one I do NOT have . . . BUT it is on it way as we "speak" right now -- lol).  But then as I was looking out at my flowers, a light bulb went on . . . I saw some bees just buzzing around . . . going from flower to flower, collecting the pollen so they can make honey and store it up for the winter, and being a "country" girl, I knew this was something they do every FALL to get ready for winter.  

So there I had it . . . I was going to use my "Buzzing Bees" stamp set for my card.  

And like most of you, I needed more "generic" cards for my card stash, so I decided to keep my card CAS (clean and simple) card.  In addition to my stamping, I used Marigold and Charcoal twine from the Twinery, wrapping it around the top-middle part of the card twice and folded up the bottom corner of the front of the card and attached a button.  I also used a little bit of "Frosted" Stickles on the wings of my bees to give them a little something.

Remember, the current challenge at Get Inky! was doing a card with a Fall or 
Halloween theme . . . with buttons as the a twist.

Earlier I mentioned a $15 gift certificate to Get Inky! Stamps from ME as a "Thank You!".   To be eligible, you need to become a follower (if you aren't already) and leave a comment you did so.  You have till Monday, Nov. 4th, to do this . . . I will randomly draw one (1) name and announce the winner on Wednesday, Nov. 6th.   

Thanks so much for stopping by to see what I've been up to!!!

Till the next time I'm up in the night.  Kathy
