"In the summertime....

.....when the weather is high, you can stretch right up and touch the sky"

Now that you've got that song stuck in your head (if you're a certain age, that is!), I shall move on to tell you that there is a new challenge over at The Octopode Factory and it's 'Summer' - hence the reason for the song :)   I love the summer and today is the official first day of summer, for those of us north of the Equator anyway.
          Those of you regularly visit me here will know that I've been on a fairly long CAS kick and this card is following along those lines.  I used the buzzy bee digi from The Octopode Factory, coloured with Copics and computer printed the sentiment, adding a few paper pennants and some line doodling.
I used the Copics colourless blender on the bee's body to give a bit of texture and some white gel pen spots on it's wings just for fun!

I would like to enter this into the challenges at Crafting By Designs , Paper Pretties , Cute Card Thursday , Dutch Dare and My Heart Pieces.

Thanks for popping in!

What a darling CAS bee card! I don't do CAS well and wish I did. I wish I could share your enthusiasm with summer! In Georgia it is miserable, sticky and damp.

Don't feel like you have to even explain your CAS mode these days, they are a refreshing change from what we see everywhere. You have a unique and very "kewl" thing going on here Dawn, I am really enjoying what you are doing. This one being no exception of course :)
In answer to your question....7 days in Nottingham and then 4 days in Amsterdam
Cheers :)S

That bee cracks me up. I love how you colored him and love that he looks like he has a fuzzy body!

I love the CAS design. You do that style very effectively!
