Tell me if you know this one...

"Well, I made the duck blue because I'd never seen a blue duck before and I wanted to see one." **Name that movie... {tic toc, tic toc, tic toc}

I kept hearing this over and over as I was making my Pink Bee... :) Isn't she cute? I hadn't seen one before, but I've been on a Blossoms & Buttons kick and I've got a ton of pink ones, so a pink bee it is! I created another B&B-loaded card for the June contest for TAC demos, and I can't wait to show you... but I'm holding out until I find out who won first {insert evil grin with raised eyebrow here} I might post a teaser before then, but I just don't know :)

I once again dove into my scrap pile... aren't you proud?! Even the tag base & ribbon were scraps. I might have gone a little Scrapper's Floss happy... I should buy stock in that stuff... me loves it! And that little dark burgundy 'button'... it's another thumbtack from the same pack as THIS blue one!

Stamps: Cute as a Bug (Serendipity Hostess Level A set)

Paper: Mimi SWIC and Cardstock, Ivory UltraSmooth cardstock

Ink: Burnt Umber & Belle Rose Palettes

I'm thinking this would be a cute tag for Mother's Day, baby shower, or a Spring bridal shower gift. It would be easy enough to make it a card instead, or just have the sentiment printed on the back of the tag. I just love that little uber-fat bee... this image is the main reason why I wanted this set!

I love the little bit o' glitter on the wings {ooooooo shiny!} And I love my Glue Dots... they are wonderful for those buttons! Well...

What do you think?
**btw... the movie was Billy Madison :)

So pretty, Barb! No idea the movie, but the saying is something I've heard, so that means I've seen it. Gonna ponder it now all day, and not remember it! I love the pink bee! And all the touches on this one!

I keep wondering how to make projects using my buttons because it's one embellishment I have always loved. Your project is super cute and shows me a wonderful way to feature my buttons!!! Now if only you could sprinkle some of your awesome talent on me maybe I could make something so pretty too!
