"Cuddly Buddly's" - "Bee of Good Cheer" -"Poor Wee Bee"

Glad you dropped by again!
Today I get to show you my third card in the series from "Cuddly Buddly's" brand new "Bee of Good Cheer" stamps! Kim McFarlane from "Cuddly Buddy" sent me three new release stamps to make marketing examples for her with. The images were drawn by Kim Sponaugle. Kim is an amazing illustrator who has illustrated over 20 beautiful children's books. I just love the way that even the stamped image looks like a beautiful story book illustration.
I have received a couple of emails from Kim and she not only is a awesome artist, she is also a very lovely soul who credits all of her talent to God. I am so happy to be able to work with her images. She has even posted some of my cards on her blog. WHAT AN HONOR!!! Go visit "The Picture Kitchen Studio's Display Case" to see her awesome blog and artwork....after you leave me a comment! LOL! ;)
This stamp is called "Poor Wee Bee". These images are also available in pre-colored 3D decoupage.

For this image, I decided because he is reading story books, that I would make the card look like a children's book cover. I used Bazzil and DCWV cardstocks and no DP. I stamped the image several times, water colored it in and added some wall paper. I then popped some of the elements a couple of times.
The inside of the card reads: "Hope you will BEE well soon!".
I think this card would cheer up a sick child.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Paper Play Challenge #29 – “All Creatures Great and Small”
I used a bee.

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #44 – “Cute as a Bug”
I used a bee.

ABC Challenge – A is for….”Anything Goes!”
So…anything goes! Hehehe!

Thanks for stopping by!
Please remember to leave a comment so I will know you were here! ;)
