~Honeycomb Happy Birthday~

Happy Tuesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Today was my first day of pre-school (lol)!! I guess I should explain that one. I volunteered to help out on Tuesdays at a pre-school.
The kids range between 2 1/2 to 3/ 1/2. The parents were permitted to stay with the kids today and the class was only an hour. Only one of the kids was crying and wanted to go even though his Mom was still there.
On Thursday the kids will be there without parents but only for an hour. Next Tuesday will be the first regular day. I really liked being there today and am looking forward to the upcoming year.  It will be interesting to watch the progression of the children during the year.
Now onto my card for today. Seems like I have made a lot of masculine cards lately. But you never know when you might need one. This one I made for Michelle's ways to use it challenge -WT443 on Splitcoaststampers.  She called it a  sweet as honey challenge. She wanted us to use a bee, or honeycomb or even go black and white.

I used the Stampin-Up honeycomb embossing folder and a dimensional bee sticker for this challenge. On my sentiment frame I used the Stampin-Up  textured impressions frame. I have had this frame for a long while and never used it. The sentiment is from the Waltzingmouse "man of the hour" set.

The striped designer paper is from the Stampin-Up  "autumn spice" collection. I added a dimensional bee sticker to complete my card.

My card is using the De-constructed sketch #117. Love the layout.
Well that's it for me for today. So until next time........God bless.

  4. I really like your card! Love the embossing, and I'm just a sucker for cute little bees (not in real like though...I'm terrified of real ones).
