Unforgettable card

Good afternoon friends. Just popping by to 
show you another quick card today.
 

 Just back from the dentist today,
 not that keen on going like many
others. Few problems but not as bad
 as I thought thank heavens !!
 
 
We still have  a nest of Bumble bees nesting
 behind our facia beside our bedroom.
 Bombus Hypnorum to be exact,a protected
 species. I do want to help bees as they are
 in decline I know. 
 
 
Our garden is perfect for wildlife
 ( the insect kind lol), so no wonder they picked
 us!  But the constant buzz buzz,
( more like morse code really) is annoying.
 
 
 They keep us awake at night and in the 
morning too. Getting more used to it I guess
now though. They get very noisy at 2.30 am.
 for some reason. Hope they buzz off soon!!!
 
 
 
Anyway enough rambling yet again....sorry!!!
Come and have a closer look at my card ;)

Beautiful card Viv, love the colours and such a cute elephant. Hope your bees move on soon, keeping you awake is not good! We are off tomorrow but it's an early flight and we are being picked up at 4am!!
This is when I think a holiday at home would be less stressful :o)
