bee cards

Happy Monday!  I am quite excited as today we are heading out to my inlaws cabin!  The forecast for this week is hot hot hot so I am truly looking forward to being at the beach as much as I can!  I love the beach as do my children!  Chad well when he was perusing me he said he loved the beach, now it's okay to him!  Today I have two cards to share that I made over the weekend.  I have had these cards in my head for a while but I didn't have time to make them, was making other cards that were needed. This week Jenny at Wee Memories is having a free for all for her challenge, basically enter any cards you make this week!   I am also entering this card into the Papertake Weekly challenge which is to have stitches anywhere on your card.  The card:

Isn't this card the sweetest?  The Horizontal Lines background stamp by Hero Arts really made me think of the lines of a bee!  I black embossed it on some yellow cardstock.  I am also pleased I figured out how to ruffle the ribbon this way, I kept trying and not succeeding before!  And I stitched the tail!  So fun!  And one more bee card that has been in my head for too long:

For this one I went again with the black embossed lines!  The flower is also doused in glitter!  It feels good to make some cards that have been on my mind for a bit!

By the way I am sure most of you know but in case you missed it the wonderful Kathy is having such a generous blog candy!

Well I better run and finish packing!  This may be my only post this week but I will be creating as my wonderful friend Tammy picked up 3 new Hero Arts stamp/sets for me while she was on a trip in the US!  So I think I may be crafting in the evenings!  :>  Hope you all have a wonderful week and are enjoying this summer!
