Amusing Challenge Birds and Bees

Ha ha…I don’t quite mean the “Birds and Bees” for this week’s Amusing Challenge – how about birds and/or bees?!?  Throughout the month I have different sorts of challenges…”use it”, themes, sketch, etc.  I will have a Weekly Winner and at the end of the month, those 4-5 winners will go into a prize drawing for one lucky Grand Prize winner.  May’s Prize Winner will receive a package of 100 Forget Me Not paper flowers from A Muse Studio.  They are being retired and have sold out so this is the only way to get a package of them!  To check out the Retirement Sale (we’re now at 50% off and a few favorite sets are sold out!) visit my website.


This week starts vacation for several of my design team members so I’m going to share two neat creations I saw pop up from the A Muse Studio designers and these were favors at the recent A Muse Studio National Convention.  They would be so fun at a summer party and they feature some new cardstock that is coming out and the Candy Wrapper die that was very popular as a Monthly Collection.

Here is a card also featuring the new honeycomb pattern and the Bee Happy stamp set from A Muse Studio – also part of the make n takes at Nat Con.  Love the idea of repeatedly stamping a word for a homemade background.

I had time to whip out a quick card to share with you featuring two retiring A Muse Studio stamps:  You’re Too Kind and Just Because.  I was a little pressed for time so this “sloppy” random watercoloring with Splash was a fun way to quickly color this bird.  It was so easy and I really think you can’t go wrong…
