On the run...

Three bazillion things to get done, so no novella today. Will get right to it then. "Bee" is the Cue Card at CASology's challenge this week. The first thing I did was to cut 1/8" strips of black and yellow and attach them on a base. Die cut the stripes with some MB letters. Cute...but not what I wanted. That mess got shoved aside. Slept on it. Thought about it. Then remembered I had some Theresa Collins Every Day Moments dp, and knew it had at least one bee on it. Voila! Definitely CAS, definitely not black and yellow...




Unconventional, yes. But it worked for me! 




One bee. He and the sentiment look purple, but they are actually a light navy. This one goes out to our grandson in AZ - he's turning 24...where did that time go???!!! I've used a Neenah white base, and Bazzill navy for the mats. PTI sentiment with Memento ink. I die cut the bee with my WPlus9 circle die. And that's about all for this card. Happy dances everyone.

Do you know what I like the most in your card? Love that you didn't use color yellow. That made your card so classic and unique. Well done! Thanks so much for playing with us at CASology this week. May

Awesome use of that patterned paper, Bev, and I like that there's no yellow and black in sight! Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!
I was reading your comment on Judy's blog about the centipedes. Where do you live? I hate them too - they're the only insect that make me scream like a girl! LOL! Wolf spiders, palmetto bugs, bring 'em on but don't ask me to deal with a centipede. We've found four around the house this week - 3 of them over 6 inches long!!
There's a picture on my blog from a couple of years ago of a smaller one..,

This is such a totally cool guy card! Gloriously clean & simple and SO masculine! Gonna melt your grandson's heart when he opens this envelope!
