Bee Mine

I think I have enough Valentines for our family with the completion of these last 2.  I made a purchase at Eureka Rubber stamps (link in left sidebar) of a little bee and a coordinating text image.  I also purchased a couple Easter images but will post pics of projects made with them later.  Anyway, I made some similar cards like these last year and like the design so much I made a couple more....

The card on the left has no embossing on the white.  The card on the right was embossed with a Dotted Swiss design.  The text images on both covers are from The Angel Co.  The heart is a punch.

This is the bee I purchased.  I colored him with a Copic marker then added some bling with the Stardust Clear Gel pen.  (Hmmm.... I haven't used that in a while.)  The black "stitching" was made with a Black Stardust Gel pen.

I just love this image!  I didn't color the bees.  Do you think I should??  Are you ready for Valentine's Day?  Today is my birthday and one of my favorite "gifts" so far is from our granddaughter.  She will be delivering our 2nd great-grand baby the end of August!!!  When I got the cool card in the mail last Thursday (the day of the class of yesterday's post) I went ballistic!!  Bad thing about that... I was driving!!!  I was bouncing off the walls all day!  Hoping for a little cowgirl but I'll be absolutely thrilled even if the child is a cowboy!!  I'm working on scrapbooking the card Christen sent announcing their coming little "roping partner".

And did you enjoy my "quad easel" card in the last post?  I'm thinking of making a baby-themed one for our granddaughter.  I'll have to look at papers and stuff this week.  Hmmm.... yellows and greens will work.

Cute cards. Once again you'VE Wowed us. Yes, I think you should color the bees on the bee mine image. Thanks for the inspiration. And Happy Birthday, Carol. (:
