Bee Mine

Okey, Dokey!!! I am so excited about this card I made – I will be linking it up to several challenges!!

Part of the reason for my excitement is that I used Doodlebug Design background papers and twine on it!!

Always love it when I actually use my Doodlebug stash and not just collect it!!!! **grin**

I used a “brand new to me” wood mounted SU! stamp set that had not even been mounted yet!! The set is called Just B!!  I stamped the B onto the BubbleGum background paper with VersaMark ink and then embossed with clear powder – made it shiny (don’t think you can tell from the picture, though) and then I fussy cut it out!!

The background was created using a Tim Holtz embossing folder called Burlap!

Hopefully you will “B” impressed by my card:


The challenges that this card is being linked up to are:

Loves Rubberstamps Challenges – Challenge # 135: The Letter “B” – use as many “B” named items on your project as you can!! I have used a Burlap background, bubblegum background paper, the letter “B”, a twine bow and a bumblebee!!

Addicted to Stamps – a challenge blog where they are on Challenge #128: Holiday  And my card fits as it is a plea for someone to be my Valentine!!

A2Z Scrapbooking Supplies – where the January challenge is: NEW TO YOU!!! And the new to me item I have used is the stamp set – Just B by Stampin’ Up!! Had not even been mounted to the wood!! I had to do that before I could use it!!

Uniko Studios –  They are on Challenge # 17: Love and Friendship! My card is all about love and friendship – as in will you be my love or my friend (whichever applies to the receiver)!

TIME OUT Challenges – It is Challenge #23: Valentine’s Day with the Optional Twist of Hearts  It is a Valentine with little hearts and arrows on the B!!

Thanks for “B”ing here and for taking a look!! I appreciate you!!

Another Happy Mail drawing will happen on February 11th — and I would love to add some new people to that group!! Please check out what Happy Mail is by clicking on the tab above by the Home and About tabs!!

See you soon – Possibly this evening if I can get the card done that is forming in my head!!!

Love to you – Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!

    You used the elements and supplies so fabulously! I often struggle with having too many cute supplies ( I know, First World problem–LOL)! I love the layering and embossed details! SWEET card, Taunya!

    Ouch…your sweet card caused my jaw to drop again, and now I’m sporting yet another bruise *grin*! Because I’m running late, all the ‘good’ comments have been said (incentive to be less a slowpoke!), so I’ll add this: Your little bee, paired with the big B is utterly, totally, completely FABULOUS! Everything you’ve showcased here: perfect combination! Beaming at seeing this!

    So sweet and uch a fab colour combination, Taunya … that little bee is such a cutie … so clever matching the image with the big B in the sentiment! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Anita :)
