Honey Bear

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog this last Sunday in May. 

Our church opened up today for service. We, of course, offered all the safety precautions.  We had everything sanitized and cleaned before, along with hand sanitizer at the door. The greeters are not hugging anyone or shaking hands and we have all the rows of chairs set 6 ft apart. We are not having Sunday School for the little ones just yet. That may resume in a couple of weeks.  But, it was just so wonderful being back for the service instead of just watching online. 

We had riots and looting in our city last night. I live just outside of Pittsburgh. It started off as a peaceful protest and then turned violent in the late afternoon. The Mayor had to put the city on lockdown and a curfew that ran from 8:30 pm to 6:00 am. I am praying for peace to return to the city. In fact, in about 15 minutes my hubby and I will be part of a zoom call to pray for just that. 

So let's move onto my card for today. This one I created for the color challenge #791.  Barbara was our hostess and she chose daffodil delight, melon mambo and calypso coral for her color trio. Optional was to make a thinking of you card. 
daffodil delight, melon mambo, calypso coral
For my card I created an outdoor scene in the sun with my cute little bear. The Golden Bear is a new die from CottageCutz. Love how he is sitting on the flower pot just watching the honey bee hive.

My background watercolored designer paper that's inside the oval is from Hobby Lobby. The striped paper is from the Stampin'-Up "into the woods" collection. I used an oval die to cut out the opening.

I cut the flower pot in calypso coral cardstock and then sponged with the same ink to get a deeper coral shade. I did the same with the hello phrase in the corner. the sentiment is from the "hello honey" set from Darcie's Stamps.

Well that's it for me for this post. So until next time......God Bless.
