Honeybears

     Hi friends!  Thanks for stopping by!  Wanted to share this adorable Honeybear stamp by Stamping Bella.
Linda Carson, Stamping Bella


       I like this sentiment by Winnie the Pooh about a friend.  It is popped up with foam dots.  The patterned papers are from some older Webster's Pages. 
     The layout is for a sketch challenge at Stamping Bella.  It's too late to share the link for you to enter but Stamping Bella has a weekly challenge on Fridays.  You can find it on their blog.
         I left the card embellishment free.  Glossy accent was used on the bee hive, bees and bear paws.  Dies used are from MFT.
        Not for sure why the paw pads look white unless it's the glossy accents vs. camera lighting!  Go figure!

Hello

     Hello!  How about a Hello card?

Linda Carson, MFT
     I get a kick out of these gnomes from MFT.  They are just so fun.  Everything on the card is MFT except the paper which is just from my stash.
     The blue surround was airbrushed.  There was just too much white and the card wasn't speaking to me!  Don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about!! 
     Thanks for dropping in! Have a fabulous week!

You're Amazing

     Greetings all!  Hope you had a good Monday.  Is there such a thing as a good Monday?  I had to go to the dentist and will go back next Monday so my vote is no!
     Moving on.  Today's card is for a My Favorite Things' sketch challenge. 

Linda Carson, MFT
      
     The stamp set is Because You from MFT.  All die cuts used are MFT's also.  The Because die is layered using blue ombre' paper.  It is also the background paper.   I dressed it up with sequins.
     The contest ends in a few hours so I better get this entered.  You can't win if you don't enter!!
     Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy your week!

Blessed

     Welcome!  I hope you're having a wonderful weekend.  Our weather couldn't be better for February.  I wonder if Mother Nature is teasing us!
     Today's card is again made using the Honey Bee set Zen Floral that was used in my last post.  This time I also used their Bless Your Heart set also.

Linda Carson, Honey Bee
     Again I used a Wink of Stella for some sparkle and sequins just for fun.  Die cuts are MFT. 
     That's it for today.  Thanks so much for stopping by!!

You Make Me Smile

     Hello everyone!  I have a card today using some new Honey Bee stamps that I recently won. 
Linda Carson, Honey Bee
     This set is called Zen Floral.  I really like the look of making your own background using several stamps in a set. 
     The sentiment comes from a Simon Says Stamp set You Matter as well as the You die cut.  The rest of the die cuts are MFT.
     I finished the card with Wink of Stella and some clear sequins.
     Your visits and comments make me smile!  Have a wonderful day everyone!

Birthday Wishes

     Hi friends!  Just wanted to share a quick birthday card.
Linda Carson, MFT
     I never buy stamping kits but couldn't pass up this one from My Favorite Things.  Thought I needed to update by birthday stash.
     It cannot be purchased as a kit now but you can still get the stamps and dies individually.  All dies used are MFT.
     Thanks for visiting friends!  Your visits and comments are truly appreciated!

Blessing

     Happy New Year friends!!  I've started the New Year by cleaning my craft room!  It's not a resolution.  It's a necessity! 
     I failed to post this last minute Christmas card.  Actually it was a thank you for my sister-in-law to go with her present.
     She is a blessing to me because she takes my Mom to her doctor's appointments.  I live with chronic pain and can't always do it.   
Linda Carson, Honey Bee
     I didn't have time to color so I grabbed this new Blessing(s)(ed) die from Honey Bee Stamps.   
     I just love this technique of adding layers to a die.  I used red underneath so no matter how you held the card you could see the festive red layers.
      Adding a few sequins completed the card.  It was fast and easy.
     Thanks for dropping by!  Here's to a creative 2017!!
