Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #229

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week!  We had a wonderful March break visiting my parents!  The boys are already planning ahead to their summer vacation and what fun they're going to have!  Being back in routine is nice but man it's exhausting!!!  I sure to miss the relaxation of March break!

We have a great new sketch today at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our fabulous hostess is the amazing Cindy Hall!  Cindy's cards are just beautiful!  She comes up with the neatest things!  Did you see her flower last week?  So cool!  Go and check it out!

Okay, so the may see them as diamonds.  I see them as circles with corners remember.  These squares challenged me.  But then I saw the stamp set I "borrowed" from my mom and decided that I would colour up some bees.  You see when I was visiting my mom I bought myself a little March Break present - some Chameleon Pens!  I am not great at colouring but I wanted to give these pens a try.  I couldn't believe I found them where my mom lives!  Anyhow, they are super fun to use and are easier for me than having to buy a whole ton of copics!  What you can't see from this picture is that the black stripe is embossed using the honeycomb embossing folder!

I love these cute little bees from Reverse Confetti!  They remind me of spring which is hopefully right around the corner!
