Bugs, burgers, ants and bees....

Does the message go out on the insect telegraph the moment the BBQ gets set up??

Well having dealt with my fair share of pesky bugs lately I thought I would create a card for 
Dustin Pike's new challenge

"Don't Bug Me"

I chose a humble bumble
........ it always amazes me how these pudgy little chaps manage to fly with such agility!!

Bee Basket  - Doodle Dragon Digi
Nestabilities dies
Memory Box die
Paper Cellar Checks paper pad
Sewing machine
Quite a few Copics (sorry no list)

Please post your entries HERE and you will get sent a surprise free image!

Thank you for visiting my blog today and I must apologise for not doing the same to you guys over the past few days but I've been a tad busy.

We ended up hosting an end of exam/birthday camp out at our house at the weekend - the campsite booking fell through and in a mad moment I offered our garden as an alternative!

................. to cut a long story short my hubby and I ended up getting about 2 hours sleep Saturday night! 

 Note to all, festival tents do not do well in wet weather, by the morning the largest tent was doing a great impression of a duck pond - hence the teens inside didn't sleep!!

Any way, I guess when you are the otherside of 40 the old body doesn't respond quite so well to being deprived of sleep and I am walking around in a bit of a daze!

So here's hoping by this weekend I will have caught up on both sleep and my chores

Crafty hugs to one and all

Bumble bees are the only buzzing insect that I can tolerate without me running screaming for the hills! Mind you, if I saw one this size I think I would still run, lol. Gorgeous card sweetie, and such amazing work with those Copics. You and Delphine should pair up and start an art school you know - I'll sign up now. Hugs Sxx

Oh, he's gorgeous! Love the colouring and the card design. By the way, my hubbie finally finished my copic storage, using your idea. Couldn't find a square plastic bin, so he made that out of wood. I can see my desk again! lol
