Have a Bee-utiful Day

Happy Hump Day!! At least I think it is...these Monday holidays really throw me off!! Time to revisit a blast from the past at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. It's fun bringing back an oldie but a goodie!!!

We have Lacy Sunshine as our sponsor this week. Such darling images!!! And our winner will be able to pick out 3 all for themselves!

It took awhile for me to decide on an image, there are so many cute ones! So say hello to Honey Spring Bee Buggme. She was perfect to go along with some bee related sentiments I have. I sure hope you can join us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 for some blast from the past fun!! 

I'm submitting my card to the Lacy Sunshine Challenge - Tic Tac Toe (die cuts, Lacy Sunshine image, gems/pearls)

Krafty Joy

We have a new challenge starting today over at Holly Jolly Christmas, and our theme is to use kraft. I actually printed this sweet digi from one of our sponsors, Di's Digi Stamps directly onto kraft card stock. This is a pre-colored image called Not a Creature Was Stirring...I do love those pre-colored digis!! I just used a white crayon on the snow and Santa hat trim. Love the earth tones for a Christmas card too, so non-traditional! Sure hope you can join us over the next two weeks at Holly Jolly Christmas for some "kraft"-y fun!

From the Heart

Coloring and shading is so not my thing so when I get an image finished, I sure as heck don't want to mess it up somehow! So talk about stress when I decided to add some clouds to this From the Heart stamp of the month, Apple Blossom Birds. I didn't want to go too crazy with the clouds and stopped with the few that I got done here. I had to keep reminding myself, less is more!! My card is for the progressive challenge going on at the From the Heart Blog. As always, I can't wait to see what next month's sweet set will be.

A Little R & R

Time for a little R & R this week over at The Outlawz CAS challenge. No, not rest and relaxation but red and ribbon instead! I had an idea in mind for my card this week but what I ended up creating looks nothing like what was in my head! That often happens, doesn't it?! I used a piece of scrap pattern paper as well as a piece of ribbon from my desk. No, I don't clean off my desk very often! The sentiment is from the What's Brewing stamp set by Simon Says Stamp. I loved the font. Hope you can join us for a little clean and simple R & R this week over at The Outlawz.

Just for You

It's been cold at night here in Pittsburgh, 37 degrees last night. YIKES!! I guess summer hasn't officially started yet, but 37 is way too low for nearing the end of May. I've been thinking a lot about our summer vacation to the Outer Banks...I CAN'T WAIT!!! For that reason, I pulled out this sweetie of a digi from Fresh Brewed Designs called Beach Baby to remind you of the Red, White and Blue challenge going on over at the Fresh Brewed Blog. Hope you can join us this week for this fun color challenge.

Yee-haw, look what I got finished at 3am when I couldn't sleep!!! I even got a second card started that I will be posting later today. Now mind you, I'm not running on all cylinders right now, so please over look any and all mistakes!! The challenge this week over at Dragonfly Journeys is anything cowgirl. I printed up this sweet image from Doodle Pantry called Li'l Cowkids. A copy of the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches was sitting on my desk and absolutely perfect for this cowgirl. Quick and easy to create, which was a good thing!!! I sure hope I sleep better tonight!!!
