Creative Belli-Die Cuts

Happy, happy Wednesday!

Still a bit chilly here today but the temps are on their way up this afternoon!
JOAN, I found my fuzzy socks!!!! lol

The new Creative Belli challenge is up and it's an easy peasy one...use a die cut! I used my scallop square nesties, how easy is that?!

Stamps: Sweet & Sassy digital-images & sentiment-(Bee Happy)
Paper: SU! cs & DSP, K&Co scraps
Ink: Prisma pencils & markers
Other: nesties, CB folder, dazzlin' diamonds
Creative Memories cutting system

Our sponsor for the next two weeks is Sweet & Sassy Stamps, I've used their Bee Happy set which contains two images & two sentiments! The single bee is glittered & popped! I CB'd the scallop square for a bit of interest!

Please visit the other Belli girls and see their beautiful creations...
They really ROCKed the Sweet & Sassy images we were so generously given! I'll be CASEing some of these designs ladies!!

Here are some challenges...

Opus-Gluei~birds....ok, I'm going with the birds & the bees theme ladies! lol The TOOG gals are too fun, checkout their challenge and see if you can qualify your card this week!

***on the homefront****

Well, we were able to sell some of our homeschool books/curriculum at the sale! I made a bit of money then proceeded to stop at a little scrapbook shop on the way home and spend some! I know, I know....I should be re-investing that money in homeschooling, but they had some Basic Grey papers there....and they're soooooo purrrrrdy!!!! lol

Oh, and yesterday, I realized I missed a whole bookshelf section, so I'm off to sort that today and get my HS objectives finished & mailed to our school district! Actually I'm getting all my schooling 'stuff' done ahead of my schedule which completely shocked me! I love it when I'm more organized than I thought I was! haha


Praying healing & health over you today, take care!!!

What neat card. Love bees. Yellow Jackets were my hs mascot plus the colors were gold and red. Love the card. I've been selling off my home school books and supplies but not to buy more. Proceeds should go for college but they seem to be going for more stamping supplies.
