ODBD Bread Basket

Monday, September 9, 2013
Happy Monday Friends!! I hope you have had a great weekend!!  I did!!  No time for crafting as I was away but I have a card I made  for Thursday's WT443 challenge Sweet as Honey Challenge at Splitcoast . The challenge was to use mostly black and yellow, bees or honeycomb on your card or project.

While looking for bees, honey, honeycomb or yellow, I realized how much of a yellow fan I am not. I only had two little swatches of yellow ribbon in my stash. I managed to find a couple of bee stamps but I went with one from the Happy Mother's Day set at Our Daily Bread Designs to match my sentiment from Apples . The bees seemed like a pun on words with the "I love you a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck..." I know a little sappy but what can one want so early in the a.m.  I began this card at 5 a.m.

I made this for one of my dear daughters as I know my dear hubby would think this is a little over the top or lame. LOL!

Card Recipe:
ODBD Stamps used: ApplesHappy Mother's Day
Other accessories: Gingham ribbon
Ink: Black Memento and copics
