Just Buzzing' By to say hello

Hello my crafty friends!
I have a short post today
featuring a card that I made
for my grandson, Jakey.
He is having surgery today and
I want to send him some cards
to help cheer him up when
he is home recovering.
I often refer to Jakey as my little,
"Love Bug", so I thought this adorable
little Bee digi that Heather created
would be make a fun
card for him!
Fresh Brewed Designs "Bee Mine" digi and "i love you" rubber stamp
Scrap cardstock and design paper
Stampin Up framelits label collection dies
Tim Holtz alterations On the Edge "Brackets"
Tim Holtz alterations Sizzix honeycomb embossing folder
Stampin Up paper clip 
Bees and buttons are from my stash
I colored this adorable bee with copic markers and
used crystal effects on the balloon and
gold glitter glue on the wings.
My very dear and sweet mother has been
crocheting me a wonderful assortment of flowers
and it's always a treat to find, "just the right" one
for each card that I'm creating.
Thank you, mom!
Jakey's surgery isn't scheduled until 2:00 this afternoon!
Do you know how hard it is to not feed a toddler all morning?
He was tucked into bed last night with the exciting news
that he would be having a
frozen Lemonade popscicle for breakfast.
My precious little love bug!

Fresh Brewed Designs July Month Long Challenge!

Hello my crafty friends!
It's time for our
July month long
prize challenge at
Take A Vacation
I made a fun
Red, White and Blue
Shape card using

I made this card for my precious 3 year old grandson, Jakey!
He is going fishing with his daddy on Friday and hopefully
he will enjoy a trip to the beach.
Then next Wednesday he is going to the hospital to
have some minor surgery done.
However, we are all a nervous wreck!
I want to make a couple of special cards for him
to receive in the mail, most especially, during his recovery.

The "Vacation" is hand written
The stars are from my stash
