Bees and Flowers

Happy Tuesday everyone! Yay finally we got some rain down here. Actually it's raining almost non stop since yesterday. The rain was much needed and hopefully it's enough to put those fires out. My card today is pretty simple because the image is quite big. I LOVE the Alota bugs and just fell in love when I first saw this image on the Alota website. I think they are are too adorable buzzing around the watering can and the flowers. I colored the image using my copics, Twinkling H2O's and Shimmerz.

Hallo und einen wunderschoenen Dienstag allerseits! Meine Karte heute ist ziemlich einfach gehalten, da das Motiv sehr gross ist. Ich finde diese Alota Bugs einfach unwiderstehlich und hatte mich sofort in das Motuv verliebt als ich es das erstemal auf der Alota webseite gesehen habe. Sind die kleinen Bienchen nicht zu niedlich wie sie da um die Giesskanne und Blumen herum schwirren? Coloriert habe ich mit meinen Copics, Twinkling H2O's und Shimmerz.
