Don't Worry Bee Happy...

Hello fellow crafters!  :)

I have been going through a rough time lately and trying to reevaluate some things.  Crafting is something that helps me to escape a little from the things that are stressing me out or making me worry.  When I made this card, I wasn't really thinking about anything.  Just trying to figure out the layout, colors to use and how everything was going to come together.  I knew I wanted to use a little bee, which is part of the requirement for the BBTB2 Challenge (use a lady bug or bee).  After I planned to use the bee, I picked out my background and made it myself, which was the requirement for the Peachy Keen Challenge #15 (make your own background).  I used Pink By Design "Cloudy Days" stamp and for the little bees, I used CTMH stamps.  The actual layout idea came from CPS Challenge #263.  Once I had all that figured out and laid out, I needed to pick a sentiment.  My first instinct is to always jump to either Pink by Design or My Pink Stamper stamps.  Then I remembered that I had Buggy Punnies from MPS!  The first one that hit me was "You're the bee's knees!"  However, after I got everything laid out I grabbed the stamp set and saw, "Don't worry bee happy!"  Once I put it all together, I just sat back and smiled!  Just kinda reminded me you've got to let go and let God!  Being the control freak that I am, I feel like I've got to control every single thing that happens in my life and I just need to be reminded that in all actuality....NOTHING is really in my control except for my mood and how I choose to live my life.  So I just want to tell you all "Don't worry about a thing, cause every little thing is gonna be alright!"  I hope you all have a very blessed day!  :)
