The Bees are  buzzing and that is  a  sure  sign Spring is just around the corner.  Once again I am cleaning off my desk and ran across these scraps of paper so I started looking for a  sketch  to use them.  MFT Card Challenges has this  sketch.  Seemed to be just what I needed  for this  bright, happy card. Creative KnockoutsJo's Scrap Shack and Crafting From the Heart all have Anything Goes Challenges.

Just a quick minute to post this card.  Orange isn't a  color I u se a lot of but today seemed fitting.  I used the  sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches for this elegant card.  I think the  embossing  just adds a  touch of class to the lacy edges on the paper.  Simon Says  Wednesday has a Die  cuts Challenge.   Cards TV has an Anything Goes Challenge.  Cute Card Thursday has a one word  sentiment challenge.  As You Like It has an Add a Sentiment challenge.  I like simple phrases on the front of the card. Crafty Sentiments has a  flower challenge.

Bee Mine

I raise  bees so anytime I see  a bee on paper or cards I just hafta  make it.  I really like how this turned out.  The faux stitching around the  heart  showing the bee's flight  gives it an extra  zap for me. My Husband  will be getting this card this evening when he comes  home from work.

  As You Like It Challenges has a Real or Faux stitching challenge. I  prefer  faux stitching because I never take the time to do real stitching. Tuesday Throwdown has  a Sweets for My Sweet challenge.  Give a Crafter a Cookie Challenge has a  Valentine Hearts challenge.  Cut It Up has a Layers of love  challenge.  Crafting From the Heart has an Anything Goes Challenge.

My Valentine

Another  quick card while the kids are napping.  This is another  die I received in the mail a  few days ago.  I thought it was so  pretty. I cut it from red paper then again in white so I could  color the  flowers. This sketch comes from  Die Cutting Divas. Word Art Wednesday and CardsTV both have an Anything Goes Challenge ending soon.


This sketch came from Freshly Made Sketches.  I really  had no clue what to do with it  until the mail came and I received this new  heart  die.  I just had to try it and this seemed a good place to put it.  Crafting From the Heart has  their usual  Anything Goes Challenge.

Today, I learned  a friend  lost her Mother.  It had been a long battle with cancer.  I don't do a lot of  sympathy cards  so I  didn't have a sentiment to go on the outside.  But I like the clean plain look of this.   I bought this  die a few weeks ago and  hadn't used it yet so  now it can be  put up instead of floating around on my desk just waiting to be used. 

CASology  has  a  butterfly challenge. 

Inspiration Destination and  Jo's Scrap Shack both have an   Anything Goes Challenge.
