Buzzin' By on a Sunny Spring Day....and an Eeeeeky Must-See Pix

 A few weeks ago, we had SOOOOO much rain it seemed like it would never end.   Now that the sun is out again, I thought I'd create this "backyard scene on a sun shiny day."

For this card I used the following:
Flower, sun, and bee stamps by Hero Arts
Fence die by Magnolia from Island Scrapbooking
Grass punch by Martha Stewart
DP from my ever growing stash
Flower and snail stickers by Sticko

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday:  "Challenge 259 - Spring Fever"
The Paper Shelter:  "Challenge 102 - Punch and Die"  (Fence die and grass punch)
Whimsical Designs:  "Think Spring"
Papertake Weekly:  "Anything Goes"
Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog:  "Challenge 156 - Flowers, Flowers Everwhere"
Loves Rubberstamps:  "Week 42 - Anything Goes"
Paper Playtime:  "Challenge 5 - Anything Goes"
That Craft Place Blog:  "Anything Goes"

And here's the "Eeeeeky" pix.  This is my son's friend's girlfriend with their "pet" Jackson chameleon.  OMG, when she stepped out of the car I kinda freaked out and told her not to come near me fearing her "pet" might jump on me.   Oh brother, if that ever happened, believe me, it would go FLYING into the ozone.  Hee-hee.
And get this, she said she once had a live grasshopper and put it between her lips with the body partially out.  The chameleon was on the palm of her had and it zapped the grasshopper with it's tongue in a flash.  EEEEEEEEEKKKKKK!!!!

And here's our son holding it.   AHHHHH!!!  Look at his eyeballs.....freaky!!!  Ugh, go wash your hands. (No offense)  LOL.

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you have a happy Aloha Friday and a fabulous weekend.

Yeah, the creatures give me the creeps too. I understand Stacey's Pets in Hilo has them for sale. My boys always wanted one or two and we even tried hunting for them in the wild. Thanks for sharing your work and photos.

The card that you made is fabulous. I love how colorful the card is. How long did you take to make the card? It looks like it was very time consuming. I am sure that it was very relaxing to make. Yikes, I'd react the same way you did about your son's girlfriend's pet.
