Queen Bee

I now have an 8 week old, a 7 year old and an 8.5 year old.  Needless to say life is busy!  But now that my infant is napping a bit I am able to very quickly get to my desk for only a few moments - but those moments are very much needed!  Creating keeps me calm so that's always a good thing!  ;)  And regardless of how busy I am or how limited my time is, the people in my life still deserve a beautiful card on a special day.  And right now my focus is Mother's Day.

First up is a card I made using a PTI set.  I made this card for a dear Mommy-friend of mine.
I first stamped the bee wings/legs in SU! craft black ink and heat set them.  I then added the body in hot pink using a mix of different inks that happened to be on my desk at the time - I will write them down next time.  ` The tiny bees are stamped in Lemon Drop Dye Ink from MFT.  The stuff is SCRUMPTIOUS!!  And lastly the polka dots are stamped using Distress Ink in Peacock blue (a total swoon color if you ask me).

I used a strip of Bazzill cardstock in yellow to hold my greeting 'Gratitude' which is stamped using white craft ink and heat set. 

I sent this off today along with a few others that I will show you all soon!
