About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

Bee-Lated Birthday

Well, my sister's birthday was last week, and because I have not been feeling up to doing much, I unfortunately, was unable to attend her birthday lunch. So, I am now stuck in the belated birthday blah's. So, I decided to combine a few challenges to make her card.

Just a basic 6x6 white card stock base. All papers are from recollections. The honeycomb was cut from the Cricut Cartridge: Theresa Collins Basics. The bee is a free digital stamp from Bugaboo Stamps. I printed him out on yellow paper, colored his eyes in with white oil pencil, colored his shoes, stripe, and antennae with black sharpie. The wings and highlights on his shoes are done with Stampin' Up silver Dazzler pen. The flower stem is Certainly Celery marker from Stampin' Up and the flower is Pink Passion from Stampin' Up.
I created with flower center with a yellow flat back pearl and a strip of pink bling mesh.
Here you can see that I chose to pop the flower off the page. I am very satisfied with this card. I know my sister will love it.

Challenges this will be entered into:
1. Craftin Desert Diva's: use a pun
2. I (heart) card sketches: Challenge #16

Hope you like it too.

Have a great day.
