Patriotic Elephant

Gee its been quite a  while since I posted anything again.  I'm really trying to do better!   Today I made  these darling cards.  I started them a few weeks ago but never finished  them.  I guess I'll put them aside until next year but atleast they are  done.

Id like to use them in the Pink and Main Red White and Blue challenge. Give a Grafter a  Cookie  has a Zoo animal Challenge.  Hiding in  My Craft Room  has an Any Holiday theme.

There are also several Anything Goes Challenges.

Heart Shaker Card

I actually made this a few weeks ago and it has been laying on my  desk  just waiting to be  posted.  Time  has really gotten away   from me lately.  Inspiration Destination has an Anything Goes with optional Shaker Card Challenge.

Butterfly trio

Another  Quick and easy  card.  I love all these  trio cards I have in the Silhouette Library.  I love all the bright colors on this card.  Casual Friday Challenges has a  Patterned paper  challenge.  CAS on  Sunday has a repetitive image challenge.  Crafting From the Heart has an Anything Goes Challenge.

Just Bee Cause I Love you

My husband is  traveling out of town for a few days for his work.  I'm sure it  will come as no surprise when he finds  a card  packed in his bag.  He recently added more bees to our aviary  so I thought this was a cute card to send with him.  I used a bee  die I bought long ago that I never used.  So  glad I found it for todays card.  Dies R Us  Challenges has a masculine theme.  Simon Says Wednesday also has a masculine theme.  I used a lot of scraps for this card so I also want to enter  it in the Jo's Scrap Shack Anything Goes Challenge.  Hiding in My Craft Room also has a Scraps  Challenge.  Simon Says Monday has a  Touchy, Feely challenge.  The  honey  comb  paper in the back ground has an embossed texture to it.  I cut eh bees from a flocked  paper to give them a  soft fuzzy feel. the White "honey cells' are raised to give yet more texture to this card.

Bee Happy

Hi people!  I'm back but  probably not for long.  It has been an eventful month since I've posted anything.  Life gets hectic sometimes and  crafting has to take a back step.  Anyway for this card I used the sketch as Freshly Made Sketches. Penny's Challenge has a  Quick and Easy theme. Crafty Creations  and Brown Sugar Challenges both  have an Anything Goes Challenge also.

 I've got several cards to post and  most of them have bees as their  theme.   As a  beekeeper I  love all things  bee!

Once again I'm cleaning off my desk.  Found this Whimsie Doodle image I printed weeks ago and  didn't use.  Decided to use it for the Your Next Stamp sketch and color challenge.  Whimsie Doodle also has an Anything Goes Challenge.  Since I'm using scraps for this entire card, Hiding in My Craft Room has a Scraps Challenge.
