"Bee Happy" and its Almost Friday.......

Happy happy Thursday!  I am finally feeling better - got knocked down by something and it wasn't fun spending so much time in bed.  I was wanting to create but all I could do was "nothing".  I must confess though I do feel a little more rested.  

Even though I wasn't able (due to illness) to participate in this weeks Tuesday Alchemy challenge I still wanted to use one of the images from Birdie Brown one of our sponsors this week.  I just love her images and couldn't wait to play with this adorable bee.  Here is the link to her Etsy shop:  Birdie Brown 

I hope you will check out her shop and take a look at all her cute and whimsical digital images.

I made this card yesterday.  I promised myself I would use one of my Nestabilities and it was so much fun.  I haven't used any of them in such a long time.  

Its hard to tell from this background but I used black cardstock for the base of the card and added the yellow and green.  As you can see I tore some brown cardstock to create the look of dirt, added the cute bee and a couple of flowers.  Of course - I always need to add some type of bling and I chose the wings so they would sparkle and shine.  

There is still time for you to participate in this weeks challenge.  The theme for this week is "Bee Guitar Home".  You can use one, two or all three of those to make your creations for this week.  There are some great prizes and who knows - you could be the next winner.  Here is the link:

I am also entering my "sweet little bee" into the following challenges:

Cinderella goes Camo

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

You are Mer-Mazing!!!

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
