Bee Happy

Time for a new Heart Song Inspirations blog challenge. I love that these start on Mondays. It just makes Mondays not suck so much lol.
This week we were to make a card that reminded us of summertime. The and/or challenge was no patterned paper. Umm....ya, that is too hard for me lol.  Plus, I'm trying to use up my stash, which is largely comprised of patterned paper.
My first thought was to use the hot air balloon again, but, since I used it last week I decided I better pick another one. Then I thought it would be good to use one of the digis that I haven't ever used before. Hmmm.......didn't want to do flowers because it's so hot outside lately that mine are dying. How depressing.
Then one day I was sitting out on the porch being pestered by bees, and it hit me. Yay! There is a bee in my HSD vault!. And I just love black and yellow together. Sweet--I had an epiphany lol.
If you like what you see, leave a comment. If not--buzz off lol.  Oh, and let me know what you think of my new blog background. Not sure if I like this one, but I do love the colors together.
