Sunday with Meljen's

Sunday has come around again, can't believe how fast this week went by!  I'm back to school once again, filling in those "free" hours when I'm not working with going to school---though a lot of those hours have been spent driving in circles trying not to cry since I'm lost and late.  This week I drove out to the school (at the apex of a triangle, an hour from home and an hour from work) 3 times this week and got lost each time.  Hopefully I've got lost in all the ways possible now and it'll be smooth sailing going forward!

Anyway, I did manage, late at night when I could have been sleeping, to get a card done.  I used last weeks CPS sketch, and used the challenge from Paper Sundaes to use no people and focus the card on animals.  I used an image from this weeks Sponsor, Meljen's Designs.

I love cards with bumble bees, so when I saw this image I knew it had to be the one.  Thank you to Leslie who sent me this honeycomb embossed card stock a while back, it sure has come in handy a few times now.  The image is coloured with copics.  The background was done with the airbrush and then I went over it with a blender pen to get the mottled look.

I hope you'll join us with this weeks Paper Sundaes challenge to make a card featuring an animal (and no people).

  5. A very sweet image with nice colors.

    Sounds like you need to get yourself a GPS system. I bought one for myself about 6 months ago since I have to drive a lot for my job. It has been SO worth the $100 I spent on it. I never get lost and I have discovered short cuts I wouldn't have known existed.

  6. This is so lovely! That honeycomb embossing is great and i love how you've done the sky in the image!
    I feel for you having to drive to a new place, i hate that. I can't even get from A to B with GPS! (I think the problem might be that i can't work the GPS!)
