Bee Mine


Hello Lovelies!

Firstly, I would like to say a huge Thank You to everyone that took the time to leave comments (both here and at Mum's) and e-mail me over the weekend. It was massively heart warming and frequently had me in tears. Thank You for your kindness.

We had a new challenge over at
Sweet Stampin, on Saturday, but I didn't really feel like sharing this card at that point. Sorry I'm a bit late. This week, CherylAnn chose Love Bugs. Your project needs to include a bug on it somewhere. It's not my week to play, but I think this is a faberoony challenge and I needed/ wanted an excuse to be doing something other than what I should be doing! I.E. Packing. ;)

I'm really chuffed with how this card turned out. It translated from FayeWorld to card very well. This is a very vintage stamp, I've had it for YEARS. I bought it because I needed it and I've only just got round to inking her up! Naughty Fluffie.

Anyway, pop over to
Sweet Stampin to see what The Sweeties have been up to, you won't be disappointed! I'll post my Cupcake/ Sketch n Stash card a bit later this week.

Boxes packed: 2.5
Moving day in: 6 days (TBC)

This is such a cool card Faye...black and yellow together are stunning unless of course the bee is flying directly at me lol! There's absolutely no way I'd let hubby get out of treating me on Valentine's Day or Mother's Day lol! He'll expect the same kind of treatment in June for F's Day lol! :) Donna x

This is gorgeous Faye! The image is adorable and beautifully colored. Love the panels! 2.5 boxes?! ! Ok I am starting to get nervous for you! LOL! If we lived in the same country and close by I would have to come help! I'm sure a death in the family complicates it even more. Have been thinking about you!

Gorgeous card Faye! Those bees are brilliant! I love the papers you've used. Ha, ha...I hate moving...really hate it so I can understand the lack of packing! When I first moved out of home a friend offered to help me...she turned up on moving day to find I'd packed nothing! Absolutely nothing! Ha, ha! Take care and I hope you're ok. Wedgie xxx

Hello dear Fluff, this is such a lovely card with those cute bees - shame on you for hiding it from us! HAHA - just kidding! I love the layout and the papers are extremely fantastic with that organza ribbon. Listen, sweetie - THANK YOU for sending those beautiful images in all your busy flurry! I love them. I have something for you - can I send to the address on the envelope? Also, I appreciate your note and really think so much of you and your family! Take care.
