Nice Matters Award

How SUPER Duper SWEET !!!!.....This Nice Matters award from my BESTEST Friend Laura
.....but really & truely...SHE deserves it most,most,most!....I am so blessed that 2 years ago a chance meeting in HL & then a LSS, brought us together!...She is the age of my youngest child , but in this WONDERFUL WORLD of STamping & Scrapping, age does NOT make a difference!...We do get mad when people ask..."Are you Mother & Daughter?".....guess we spend so much time together, we have "adopted" each other's ways!..( good for me...bad for her!!)
I have met sooooooo many awesome ladies thru this many have INSPIRED me....Just even blogging is overwhelming to me, which is why I cannot seem to get posts done on a regular basis ( I can make the cards/scrapbook pages/altered art....just cannot write about it!)
I would like to nominate each and EVERY one on my BLOGGER ROLL for this award too!...If I could only figure out how to HIGHLIGHT the entire column!!...can you help me here, Laura?

FORTY-SHMORTY Stitchery card

WHERE have I been?????...Oh My Goodness!!!...Well...the grandguys were here for two weeks...and I really dont know how in the world you ladies with little 'uns do it all! This Mama
( that's what they call me) is tuckered out...and have been CREATIVELY CHALLENGED for the past 14 days! is ANOTHER stitchery from my friend in Canada , Connie...( the aunt to the twins album...50 pages..I just completed!).....She took a retired SU stamp set: Paris in Spring..enlarged it...stitched it ( EXPERTLY) onto muslin and sent to me with the request to make into a 40th Birthday card for her sister.
So, after adhering to heat & bond, then to cardstock...I attached to layered patterned paper & solid c/s from my stash. VINTAGE trim....and CUSTOM printed sentiment on vellum. I painted ( MM paint) rouge Chipboard and used some Heidi Swapp chip also.
Seriously....I feel Connie should get all the credit...since her stitching is awesome....I think we make a GREAT team.....she keeps me so busy, I rarely have time to post on EBAY anymore!

Well..I have been waiting for the perfect time to debut my BEE So Kind Creation....using a couple of my most favoritest stamp sets from the NEW IDEA BOOK & Catalog....Pick a Petal and So Kind. Using the Ladybug Bandwagon idea, I had to make a beeeeeeeeeeeeee card..OF COURSE!!!!!!!....Using the Pick a Petal for the bee head, body & wings....stamping on a combination of So Saffron c/s, Prints Designer paper and Vellum to create the sweet bee......I hand drew the face...pierced the antennae and used the Signo white pen for the "stitched" lines. Attached to Basic Black c/s, then to a piece of the Prints Designer paper ( A2 size).....A sweet bow of Black Gingham ribbon highlights the side of the card. Swirlies and SO Kind stamped with Whisper White Craft ink.
I designed this card for my Stamp Camp last friday.....First Friday of every month, here at StudioBeeCreations...The Bee Hive!!!....It was a hit!!....everyone was a BUZZIN'!!!!!!!!!


Well.........its been forever since I posted...I really want to be better at this...but, Ive been working soooooooo hard on my NEW LOOK!......OK..ACTUALLY my beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeautiful new banner and watermark designs by the MOST OUTSTANDING, Creative & Talented ( and PATIENT!) lady...Beth at Freckled Fun Designs
