Summer Time and the living is easy

If only the title was true, not raining today that's something , but not exactly great Summer weather.
Been AWOL from my blog for a few days, just busy with stuff . It's been a whirl of social activity around here, some folks like my Mum ,would love that but I prefer a quiet life. Last night we celebrated Bob's Mums 70th Birthday and tonight we are going to a wedding do,then out again Sunday, I'm tired but don't want to miss the do tonight, my pretty new frock is already to wear and I don't often get the chance to look posh.
On to my Summery card, one of my very fav penny black stamps, bee costume, coloured with promarkers. The pretty papers are printout from Raspberry Road called honeycomb.
The glittery sun was from dress it up, hobby craft.

Such a cute card but after asking about your entry...I'm sorry,we cannot enter it into this weeks challenge, as there are too many different colours to be Monochrome.
Hoping to see you again soon over at Craft Punked.
