"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…

Orchis Last Enchanter - Morgan's Art World

Happy Monday Sweet Friends
My goodness it's the final day of October and this year is almost over.  Time passes way to quickly.
Today I am sharing my Design Team Card for the Classic Design Team Challenge that is now underway through November 27th.  Our sponsor this month is the talented artist Morgan Fitzsimmon owner of Morgan's Art World on Facebook.

The image I am using is called "Orchis Last Enchanter."  I think she's a gorgeous image and to be quite honest I was intimidated to color her.  I desperately wanted to do her justice.  It took several attempts at coloring her before I was pretty happy with the results.  She's really a great image to work with and she's actually one of my most favorite digi's.   I made some flowers with one of my flower die cuts.  I absolutely love these flowers and will be making many more in the future.
