Buzzy Tilda!

Stamps: Tilda with Bee, Beehive, smARTworks' ladybug trail, Stampendous bee sentiment. Cardstock: Buckaroo Blue, More Mustard, PTI white, black, Deja Views 'Honeycomb' and 'Summer Rain'. Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, More Mustard, Copics, white gel pen. Accessories: Nestabilities Rectangles and Circles, circle punches, Mustard grosgrain ribbon, Stardust glitter pen, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Dress it Up bee buttons.

Warmer weather has finally arrived and let's hope the bees begin making their appearance, too. Has anyone else noticed how few honeybees are around the past few years? Although I don't think I'll ever be as friendly with bees as this Tilda, they are always welcome in my garden.

Here's a photo of my garden in 2007:
It's designed to be a butterfly/hummingbird garden with a bit of 'anything that strikes my fancy' thrown in for good measure. Maybe I need a Tilda around to encourage more bee visits?

If you need a few more Tildas, be sure to check out Lena (tackertwosome)'s Magnolia Card Kit swap over on Splitcoast Stampers. This 'Buzzy Tilda' card is a sample from one of the kits I sent in to the swap; 'Happy Moments' Ladybug Tilda is the other.

Using the card kit supplies, the shading jeans tutorials from Copic Creations's current challenge and the sketch from the Just Magnolia Sketch challenge, this card came together in no time. Now I have plenty of time to get out in my garden and start pulling up those weedlings!

NOTE: KL Scrappin' and Stampin has Stampavie stamps are now in the store!! Be sure to check out these cuties HERE and order before they are all gone. You still have a few days to get in on April's free shipping with a $50 order!
