Happy ‘B’ Day

Inspired by Simon Says Stamp Blog post and video by Laura Bassen, Amore Laura Fadora – Your the Bees Knees.  (Laura is one of my favorites)  I came up with this Birthday card.

I used Catherine Pooler’s Background stamp, Peppermint Stick Background, and two colors of ink to make the plaid background.  The Bee is from Penny Black’s Every Which Way stamp.  The day die used is from Paper Smooches Heartfelt Thanks Happy Birthday. and the Happy die is from My Favorite Things Happy Trio.  I loved how Laura put the third bee on the bottom of the card and off the card but I worked too hard on the bees to cut one off.  Thanks Laura.


I will be entering this in the Live Love Cards Challenge for this month.

Welcome to my blog. I started my blog so that I could share all of the things that I am passionate about not only in the creative world but in all areas of my life. I retired over 10 years ago from the field of education. I was a Resource Specialist in a Teacher's Resource Library. My job allowed me to do the things I love every day. I love creating things with many different media. Papercrafting is my favorite. I helped teachers create bulletin boards and instructional materials for their classrooms. Now that I am retired I spend a lot of time creating cards and I love all of the different techniques and media available. I also am very active in wildlife conservation and spend many hours volunteering with the Wildlife Conservation Network.
