A Bunch of Bees!

This week's DRS Designs Challenge Theme is Birds & Bees.  How fun is that? 

Since the DRS Bitsy Bee is one of my favorite images, I stamped a bunch of them, fussy cut them,  and formed a "B" with them.  Next, I added a little part of the Its Spring...Be Happy! sentiment - I trimmed off all but the very end.  Super easy - the only hard part was waiting for the Stickles on their wings to dry.

Today, I have last minute preparations for Allie's wedding on Saturday.  She tried on the dress after alterations last night and I felt like I was going to bust from  pride.  She looked like a princess! 

Hope you will join us in the DRS Challenge this week - bring on birds and bees!



  1. A brilliant card Nancy, such a clever idea and fabulous design.
    I hope everyone has a wonderful day on Saturday.

  2. Wow that is a lot of bees to stamp color Stickle and fussy cut, especially cut, but all that work turned into one amazing card. I just adore it. So happy for Alli and her big day. It is such a special feeling when you see your daughter become a bride with all their beauty, isn't it? My best wishes for her. Enjoy the weekend - what a glorious one it will be I'm sure.

  3. What a cute way to do all those little bees! I know they shine with all the Stickles too. So much fun!!

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo

My Favorite Parade

Hello Friends! Hope you had a good weekend.  I look forward to this weekend every year because I love the Fourth of July Parade in Prattville.  It makes me feel like things are right with the world - it is a bit old fashioned, a bit innocent, a bit quirky (actually a whole lot quirky), and a lot of fun.  Anyone can be in the parade as long as you remotely look patriotic.  My kids used to ride their bikes in the parade when they were younger. I thought I would share a few pictures. The mayor and City Council had one of the first floats (by the way all the floats and cars throw candy, necklaces, and toys so the people watching are all paying close attention so they can catch the good stuff). Notice how the floats are really just trailers with a few decorations. This was one of my favorites - it was the sanitation department and they had all their candy in a toilet on the top of the truck - lol!  I am pretty sure it was tootsie rolls - lol again! The local judge - isn't she pretty?  

Hot Air Balloons, Santa Fe, and Watermelon

Hello friends. Posting Day Three from our New Mexico Trip.   When  I was 26, I was on a hot air baloon team.  Our lead pilot back then was awesome and was asked to do a lot of commercial flights and invitationals. My favorite experience was at an invitational in Telluride, Colorado.  Flying down the middle of that city was amazing, but flying around Albuquerque was always wonderful as well.  Anyway, I wanted my daughter to experience the special feeling of being in a hot air balloon in Albuquerque (the balloon capital of the world).  Her son was a bit afraid so he stayed with me. Allie was lucky to have the owner of Rainbow Ryders as her pilot and she met a wonderful woman who is an established travel blogger (I will try to get her contact info and share it because she was very interesting and I bet her blog is interesting too).  They hit it off really well, and she was so encouraging to Allie who wants to get into Social Media Marketing.  For the travel blog video they got to go insid
