Bee Skep

Coffee of the Day - Marzipan

Sending beautiful Sunday morning blessings to all of you today!

I know I've been hit or miss with my postings and all but absent when it comes to visiting everyone. we still haven't been able to find that 'one' vehicle for us yet.... sigh.... thought we were buying one on Friday, but the buyer sold it out from under us. oh well. just wasn't meant to be. means the hunt continues into next week. good golly, this is getting tiring! on the positive side, I do love spending time with my honey bunny! grins!

but on the crafty front, I was able to get to my craft room yesterday and just PLAY! this is what I came up with...

every month Crafty Secrets has a linky party. all you have to do is use any of their products to be entered into a drawing for a gift certificate to their wonderful store. I needed a thank you for our pastor & his wife, who have let us borrow a car for the past 2 weeks. we are returning it today, so this seemed perfect to go with the linky party challenge theme of 'Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart.'

Images are from the Crafty Secrets 'Queen Bee' digital set, paper is from the My Mind's Eye Be Amazing collection, ribbons are by Really Reasonable Ribbon, flowers are from Michael's and Wild Orchid Crafts, heart banner die is by La La Land, tiny banner punch is SU!, and buttons are from my vintage stash. oh yes, cute chevron bag is from Michael's as well. wings on the little bee are painted in shimmerz.

Have a most glorious day! :)

Lovely card! I like to look at all the details! I've gone with Brian this week while he took a few for test drives and he hasn't found one yet either. Just need to get one to replace his '97 Corolla before winter so we still have some time. Our budget isn't very much so it's tough! Hope you find one soon!

Brilliant makes since I last visited Jennifer!
Sorry I haven't been around but I've been away for a cheeky little week in my favourite place! Back home & down to business now though!
Hope that elusive vehicle appears for you soon!
