Tim Holtz 101 - Challenge Week 2 - Days 4 - 6 - The Hum of Bees
I supposed it would be a good idea it I read the instructions ROFL... Apparently the challenge for Week 1 was only to concentrate on Days 1 & 2 from the class list... so what did I do... all  5 days and day 6 of week 2.

So I have now read the instructions, still laughing... and am only supposed to concentrate on Day 4 - 6 (re-inkers; stains/sprays; markers) for this week's challenge. So today's card is mostly stains.

I recently picked up Tim's large bee with embossing folder - fun.

I'm using a quote stamp from Quietfire Design; "The Hum of Bees..." ("Garden Delights" 8pce set)

To see all the details and descriptions etc, just click on card image. Enjoy

And it fits for these challenges:

Gorgeous card, I love the colours!

It was 'The Bees' that included the classic line 'It's panic time from coast to coast' which became a family saying - eg 'It's tidy-up time from coast to coast!' lol!

Thanks for joining in at CRAFT Challenge!

love Mags B DT x

I have the same problem you do! Lol! That is too funny and so relatable. Now, your bees are awesome sauce and fantabulous and that honeycomb background is a wonderful anchor to this design while also providing a landing space for your bees. Fun color combs for the wings!
