Bumble Bee Day!!

Yay it's Friday & a Happy One to you friends!! I am in painting pergatory right now, hee hee---oh how I hate to paint! When we moved in our house we had the entire house painted professionally cuz' I hate it soooo much--but I didn't want to wait for anyone to come this time so I've tackled it myself, YUCK! I know some people love to paint (crazies, lol) but I don't know why--it's messy, boring & takes too long. I just wanna move everything in & be done already ya know--and my hubby is SO the OPPOSITE of me. He's slow & steady & I'm ADD super-fast & want it all done right now, LOL--so getting him to hang shelves & bring up the furniture in "my time frame" is gonna be a struggle for sure! I'm makin' him a big pot of his favorite chili tomorrow to sweeten him up a bit, hee hee---oh the powers of sweet-talk & good food :o) After 14 years together I know how to "work him", shhhh don't tell him that though, bwahahahhh! But "MY" plan is to be done by Sunday evening so we'll see....!

- I still have Stampin' Up stamps for sale HERE! They're bargain priced I tell ya-gotta make room for new stuff, hee hee!

-If you haven't hopped along on the Blog Hop for Susana's store from yesterday, then get to it! You have until Aug.15th at midnite EST to leave your comments to win some fabulous prizes. Go HERE to get started!!


Today I'm sharing a project that I hadn't previously shown that I did during my guest stint for All That Scraps last month. This 3x3 Notecard Gift Set uses the fabulously cute "Bumble B Bear" stamp set! I just love all the fun images that come in this set--had to use them all on one gift!! All of the cardstock & dp is from Paper Trey Ink.

All of the notecards are 3x3" and use similar elements. The honeypot got a thick coat of diamond glaze on it and the bee's & bear's wings have diamond stickles on them. On the bear card there are 3 Bella Baubles in copper.
For this card I cut the bee out & perched him on top of 2 stacked Primas--so cute!
I love, love to make these fun 4x4" boxes--you can find the directions to it right HERE. Very easy to make & quick too! I just decorated the box with the same materials, wrapped the lid w/ ribbon & added a fun charm! Just a great gift to make for someone special in your life (great teacher gifts too)!

Hope you have a fabulous Friday & I'll see ya back here with a "surprise" sneakie peekie & project for the Copic Creations Challenge Blog, so stop back by 'kay!!
