Bee Thankful


This was done using the Bee Thankful stamp set.  I stamped it in Memento Tuxcedo Black ink and than colored it in using Night of Navy Stampin Blends taking turns using the light and dark for every other letter.  Next I colored in the bee using Pineapple punch Stampin Blends as well as Granny Apple Green Stampin Blends for the leaves.  I used the retired 6×6 Neutral pack of dsp paper in Night of Navy as I made these before the paper retired.  I also used the Night of Navy Stampin Blends to color the clear rhinestones to match the card.

Supplies used:

Newly Organized Craft Room

So here are some pictures of newly organized craft room. Still some areas need some rearranging, but I can at least walk in there now and work. These are going counter clockwise when you walk into the room. The first picture is a view of the main part of the room. My husband says it looks “cozy”!
