Bee happy

Hi all,

It's been thundering today, but luckily we've been inside. Daisy had her dance lesson today and then we went to the library. Daisy loves to choose books for her and Martha and is allowed to choose one DVD too. This week she chose a cartoon about Theseus and the minotaur and although I wasn't sure what she would think of it, she loved it. Martha is desperate to crawl and has managed one mini crawl today, but still doesn't quite know what to do once she gets on hands and knees.

Onto my card. Stamp Fairy have a wonderful photo for inspiration this week. It is of a very floral apron in bright colours. So, I have used bright florals and a Lenny Bee image as bees love flowers. Also, I thought that it would be cool to use the apron as a kind of sketch, if you see what I mean. I used three papers, like the three different fabrics on the apron and then used the waistband and pocket and bottom hem as a sketch. I found some great ricrac to mirror that used on the apron. I quite like how this has turned out.
