Don't Worry Bee Happy...

Hello fellow crafters!  :)

I have been going through a rough time lately and trying to reevaluate some things.  Crafting is something that helps me to escape a little from the things that are stressing me out or making me worry.  When I made this card, I wasn't really thinking about anything.  Just trying to figure out the layout, colors to use and how everything was going to come together.  I knew I wanted to use a little bee, which is part of the requirement for the BBTB2 Challenge (use a lady bug or bee).  After I planned to use the bee, I picked out my background and made it myself, which was the requirement for the Peachy Keen Challenge #15 (make your own background).  I used Pink By Design "Cloudy Days" stamp and for the little bees, I used CTMH stamps.  The actual layout idea came from CPS Challenge #263.  Once I had all that figured out and laid out, I needed to pick a sentiment.  My first instinct is to always jump to either Pink by Design or My Pink Stamper stamps.  Then I remembered that I had Buggy Punnies from MPS!  The first one that hit me was "You're the bee's knees!"  However, after I got everything laid out I grabbed the stamp set and saw, "Don't worry bee happy!"  Once I put it all together, I just sat back and smiled!  Just kinda reminded me you've got to let go and let God!  Being the control freak that I am, I feel like I've got to control every single thing that happens in my life and I just need to be reminded that in all actuality....NOTHING is really in my control except for my mood and how I choose to live my life.  So I just want to tell you all "Don't worry about a thing, cause every little thing is gonna be alright!"  I hope you all have a very blessed day!  :)

Enjoy The Ride...

Hey y'all!  I have another card to share with you!  :)  This card will be entered into the FCCB Challenge Me Monday #108.  Their challenge was to use a car, bike, plane, train, etc on your project.  I chose to use a bike!  My stamp comes from Papertrey Ink called Everyday Button Bits.  I absolutely LOVE that stamp set!  I have only used 2 so far, but I cannot wait to use the rest!  They are so fun!!! 
I am also entering this into the HSS Challenge #115.  This challenge was to make something for Spring.  You can't get more spring than pinks, yellows, flowers and bike rides!  :) 

Other products I used were:
~CTMH - Paper, Ink (black) & Markers (Twilight, Black, Grey Flannel)
~Basic Grey - buttons
~Ribbon - to be honest, I don't remember where my ribbon came from.
~Cricut - circles cut at 3" and 3.25"

Oh!  I almost forgot!  I got my layout idea from OWH blog.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

A Note For You...

Happy Saturday ya'll!  I just wanted to share a card with you right quick.  Made this last night & was just way too tired to post.  :)  I got this lovely paper at Michaels when they were doing a 7/$1 deal.  I'm pretty sure all of this is Recollections paper, including the cardstock.  The ribbon is from the Dollar tree.  The ink and stamp are from Close to my heart.  I used my Gypsy to cut out the music note using Gypsy Wanderings (2.25"h).  I used gold stickles to make it sparkle! 

I am submitting this into the CPS Challenge #262.  I love that blog for when I get stuck on layouts!  :)

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!!

Quilted Birthday Card...

Hello my virtual friends!  :) 
I have a birthday card to share with you all today!  I was checking my email...I  believe it was yesterday (Wednesday) and that led me to Operation Write Home's blog.  They were talking about using scraps to make cards and all these different techniques.  This particular card that I have made is not one of their techniques, but I found a  challenge that I wanted to enter.  Using scraps just seemed to fit in with what I was trying to accomplish!  I have a ginormous stack of scraps and really need to get rid of some of them.  So I will be using a lot of scraps on my future cards until that pile goes away! 
The first challenge this is getting entered into is Mojo Monday Challenge #238.  Their challenge was the awesome layout!  I love this layout and it was pretty simple to do!

~A2 size card (4.25"x5.5")
~Scraps (pretty sure all or most are CTMH)
~Ink : CTMH - Black, Star Spangled Blue & Tulip (balloon strings)
~Ribbon (Dollar Tree)
~Buttons: Basic Grey
~3D tape - CTMH
~Liquid glass or glue (buttons & ribbon)
~Stamps: Papertrey Ink - Everyday Button Bits & Pink By Design - Birthday, Birthday stamp set "Happy Birthday" (inside)
~Cartridge: Accent Essentials - circle cut at 3"

I also just wanted to quickly share the graduation invites I made for someone.  I made 10 of these suckers.  I ended up not having enough of the background paper, so I made my own! 

Thanks for stopping by!
