Happy Bee Day...

Hello, hello!

Fantastic news... we were able to bring my mom home from the hospital yesterday and she is looking good. There are still doctors visits in the near future to make sure everything stays on track but here's hoping that we are really nearing the end of this episode and she can finally heal completely. :)

Did you know that All That Scraps is now carrying the Tiddly Inks range of clear stamps? If you've been visiting this blog of mine for any length of time then you know that I'm a big fan of these adorable stamps. So needless to say, I'm pretty excited by this! Seeing all those stamps go up in the shop inspired me to pull out one that I already own and play. But before I got down to it I decided to check out the Tiddly Inks Challenge for some added inspiration. This go round we are to create a card inspired by a movie or book theme. At first I was a bit stumped but when I saw the Happy Bee Day stamp in my stash it all clicked. I've had this sheet of Classic Pooh honey bee paper for ages and it was absolutely perfect for both the stamp and the challenge. I have always loved A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh stories so bringing a few of those honey bees to my card was a lot of fun. And I think this Tiddly cutie looks right at home buzzing along with them.

Alrighty, today and tomorrow are my "weekend" and I've got a lot to catch up on. Thanks for stopping by!

Oh Amy, I'm so glad to know your mom is back home. My fingers are crossed that nothing else holds her back from recovery. I've been glad to see that ATS is carrying Tiddly Inks. I usually buy them in digital but am considering buying some in rubber because they come with extra parts that are not in the digital files. Love your card, perfect for their current challenge. Hugs, Julie.
