Bee's Knees


Oh Monday!  While I enjoy the weekend, I look forward to the quiet of Monday's as well were we are all back at work and school.  This is the last week of that as it is the kids last week of school.

This weekend I was able to get some cards made for teacher's and for all the cards I created, I tried to create two of each of them so I could add onto my stash.  I was feeling very creative that night and I was so happy about that!  Always nice to feel the mojo kick in.

I love the Retro Sketches and knew I wanted to use their current one for this card.  I know there are a lot of crafter's like me that like to hoard things, and I will say I have about 50+ pads of 6 x 6 paper (not including all my loose patterned papers-with 3 more new ones on their way) that I tend to hoard.  I've been trying to break them out and use them a little more so on almost all my cards this weekend I pulled out the patterned paper.


I ordered a few new sets from Sweet Stamp Shop and this Happy Bugs set has been on my list for awhile.  I stamped the bee on the patterned paper from My Mind's Eye Dilly Dally and then colored the wings with a Copic and applied some Glossy Accents.


Hope your week is starting off right!  I'm taking a staycation here soon and hope to be be doing a ton of stamping (along with some housework-not fun, but much needed!)
