Delightful Wednesday – Summer!

Hello there! Hope all is well with you and yours!

Ok it is my turn today to show a Wednesday project on the DIGITAL DELIGHTS BLOG and the theme Sandy and I chose for July is Summer!
I chose to use the gorgeous QUEEN BEE for my make this time! Isn’t she fab! Bet you didn’t know that you can tell a Queen Bee by her teeny tiny crown and natty blue boots!! Well there you go; every day’s a school day!! J
 I decided that our royal insect deserved a hive to live in so I made one from Kraft card and decorated it with some bee buttons!

Dies: Tattered Lace ‘Large Decorative Rectangles’ – Spellbinders ‘Standard Circles’ and ‘Inverted Scalloped Circles’
Paper/Card: Neenah Solar White – Kraft card – bits from stash
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers & pencils – Vintage Photo DI
Others: Gem flowers – Bee & Flower buttons

So beehive (!) yourself and buzz off (well you knew I would) to the DIGITAL DELIGHTS BLOG where every day there is something to inspire you and don’t forget to visit the SHOP for all of Wendy’s gorgeous designs! They are all as sweet as honey!!

Oh, and before I go (nearly got rid of me then) I need to tell you about this.....
..... we have a new challenge starting tomorrow so pop over and join in!

Thanks so much for looking and leaving such lovely comments!  Have a wonderful day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
