Bee Kind to a Friend

CCREW717INSPHere is my inspiration card for this month’s challenge.  In the image below, we were asked to use the photo for inspiration.  I found another really neat color combo that I wanted to use and decided to use the bees that are in the photo.  The color combo here is Night of Navy, Marina Mist and Crushed Curry.  I used the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp set and the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits to make this card.  Watercolor paper was used as was an aquapainter to color the watercolor paper in Marina Mist.

summerWhile I got this card layout from my upline, I did change it a bit.  The DSP used here is Naturally Eclectic as I thought the pattern went nicely with the dots stamp in the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set.  I also really liked the pop of color from the Glitter Enamel Dots.  I used a tiny piece of doily and a thread from the burlap ribbon just for fun accents on the card.  I really hope you like it!!  I am thinking about sending this card to a friend… but who?  Do you want it?? Comment below!  I will pick one person randomly!

makeawishThis morning, my amazing upline posted a challenge to our group page on Facebook.  The challenge was… Stamp!  LOL.  There’s 9 more challenges, I hope I can keep up as I am sure they will get harder and harder as time goes on…

Anyway, I ran downstairs to my craft room and stamped this little beauty.  NOW that the Occasion’s Catalog is out, I can post links again for you for the supplies.

This card uses the Window Shopping Bundle and some of the Falling in Love Suite.  Now the Window Shopping Bundle is meant for a box. I was trying to think OUTSIDE the box…. LOL. Maybe in the next day or two, I will actually use the box for the box! Wait. huh? That didn’t make sense, did it? Anyway…. I have to try and pull myself away from this color scheme!  I just can’t! But I promise to try in my next post!! hehehehe

Yesterday, I posted about the Hostess with the Mostest.  I was so inspired by these bottles I made a total of 5 different designs.  This one happens to be my favorite.

While I am not a fan of pink, I do love these colors; the glitter, the shiny foil doilies, and so much more!  I hope these bottles inspire you too!  Think of your next holiday party.  Is it Christmas?  Is it New Years?  Does it matter?? Give the Host a gift… it could be wine, champagne, or sparkling cider!  P.S – It would fit over a REALLY big bottle of beer too!  LOL or a 2-liter bottle of soda.

I sold this bottle of sparkling cider but I have 4 other kits for sale to make your own Designer Bottle.  Below you will find three more examples too!  I have included the links  for the Pink one only. If you need help shopping for three, contact me.  Some of the paper is retiring.  Some of items are on sale right now!  Don’t miss out on the great sale!!
