Hey there, here's another Hope You Can Cling To card for the Splitcoast Stampers card drive benefiting breast cancer patients and their families.  Anna's challenge, Save the Boo-Bees!, is to feature bees in our projects.  She would like to see bee-friendly scenes or the color yellow.

I dug into my stamps and grabbed three Our Craft Lounge sets called Just Bugz, Hello Spring and Bees Knees.  The first two are on the retired list (40% off) or all are available at Memories of Time (20% off entire order when you enter the code "Check Us Out").  Links to both stores are at the bottom of this post in the "Supplies" section.

This card was super easy to make and that little bee is too stinkin' cute!  He was stamped twice on white card stock, colored, cut out, Stickles were applied to both sets of wings, the bodies were adhered together, black Sparkly Fluff was glued onto the stripes and a Clear Glaze pen was used on his eyes.  The flowers from Just Bugz and Hello Spring were colored, cut out, shaped, Stickled, a brad was placed in the center of each then they were popped up on foam. 

The honeycomb pattern on the yellow panel was done with one of the stamps in Bees Knees.  A piercing tool was used to track the bee's movements around the card.  I guess that's about it for this one.  Don't forget, OCL is "going pink" and will have daily posts this week to celebrate breast cancer awareness, so stop by the The Lounge and check it out.
