Today I had a frightening encounter with a large, scary foe. It is a well known fact across the realm that I am terrified of bees. My brother, Jason the Machinist, and I both share this affliction. Our sister, the Lady Commander of Copics, often teases us about it, and we have tried explaining that it is not a phobia, but self preservation that makes us turn and run. Today that was proven as I came across an alarming sight whilst riding Ruffles through Wild Honey Fields. From a thicket of oversized flowers a GIANT bee, the size of two men, emerged. The vile insect was carrying a basket of who-knows-what. Likely body parts from its latest kill.
I started this card by cutting out the super cute bee from the Birthday Bash cartridge. I used vellum for its wings and in the gift bag, earning myself +298 rare material exp points. I cut the sentiment from the same cartridge and embossed the letters and the gift bag with my Cuttlebug. On the little tag on the gift bag I wrote the initials of the card recipient.
Because this was to be entered into a challenge where the use of stamps aren’t allowed, I didn’t stamp anything on the inside of the card (hence the lack of picture) and just hand wrote a message.
This card will bee entered into the following challenges:
Desert Islands Crafters Challenge #52: (used #3-no markers, #5-use a birthday sentiment, #10-use stripes and dots)
As soon as I espied the beast, I turned Ruffles around as she let out a loud whinny, and galloped back to the Guild Hall as fast as she could. As we were riding, I cast a spell of swiftness to give her +500 speed to get us as far away from that monster as quickly as possible. *shudder*
