Mr. Do Bee Always Says Thank You!
The Doubledog Dare gals post a new Challenge every Tuesday here on SCS. I am finishing up on the two I am (was!) behind on before I leave on my trip. Up first: Romper Room Challenge by Charlene (aka Where M&Ms Gather). We were to make a Mr. Do Bee card (using a bee somewhere on your card, of course) teaching a young child one or more good manners. I used my Cricut to cut out a "B" with the Storybook cartridge, my "SU Exclusive Billboard Sizzlet strip die" (that's a heck of a label, huh?) and Big Shot for the "Mr. Do" letters in red. My little bee guy is by Rubber Stampede and he was stamped twice. He's colored with copics and accented with a gold half back pearl. The "Thank You" sentiment is from the SU Favorite Teddy Bear set, and you can probably tell by my "classy" (ughh!!) chicken scratch that I doodled the "always says" words. LOL!! Next up is this card I made for our DDC that Bev (aka Beestamper) hosted. She created this coolioolio sketch for us to follow for our challenge: Fun huh??!!! My DP is SU Patterns Pack, the CS is Not Quite Navy, Blue Bayou, and Baja Breeze. The ribbon is SU Doublestitched Soft Sky. I used a Mary Englebreit 3-D sticker from Michaels (they come 3 to a pack, super cute in the $1 section), and my Nesties for the layered panels. The border was made with SU Scallop border punch. The little stamped praying hands are from the Fishers of Men set by Our Daily Bread. TA DA!! Done!! All caught up and now I'm gonna go pack!! I'm headed to NYC with DD Leslie and DS Judy for a girls weekend in the Big Apple to celebrate my 50th!!! (DH didn't want to go with us but said he'd send me as my BD present!!) Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!
