4th of July

Can you believe that next week is the fourth of July? for some reason I thought I had another week (other than this one) before the month of June was over. Why does time seem to go by so much faster the older you get? As a kid it felt like the summer would last forever, now as an adult the seasons feel like there flying by.

This Biker Bee image is a stamp that I purchased from my last trip to Hobby Lobby, I couldn't resist buying it especially after see my friend Dawn's card using this cute little bee, besides all of their stamps were 40% off so I got this one and a few others. Its hard to tell from the photo but I used my Distressed Stripes Cuttlebug embossing folder on the red panel and my Spica glitter pen on the bee's wings and antennas. This was a fun card to make and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!

Supplies: Biker Bee - Stampendous, Sparkle - Warm Words - SU, Doodlebug designer paper, Distressed Stripes embossing folder, Square Nestabilities, Copic markers, Spica glitter pen, Large and small oval punches, Striped ribbon, Pop dots (for main image). Colors: Brilliant Blue, Real Red, Whisper White.
