HoneyBee Showcase February 9

Ribbons..ribbons..everywhere ribbons!!!..Our challenge this week at BettyBees Buzz was to be creative with ribbon!..I thought it would be fun to do a card with braided ribbon in 3 different colors and since I needed a birthday card, I was set to rock the challenge!!..

I use a glass 12 x 12 'mat' on my work table and this allowed me to tape the 3 ribbons for easy braiding.

Be sure to check out BettyBees Blog to see what the HoneyBees have to share with you this week!!..We would love to see your creative take on ribbon!!

Buzz Brag and Be Happy Friday 2/3

I am so excited to share with you my fun SWARM weekend in Punta Gorda!!..Last weekend, our Miss Betty had one of her awesome SWARMs and I had the opportunity to host 'Rosie's Casino'. This is just what I needed after spending time in the hospital. Of course, it also gave me the motivation to get well and though I was not quite there, I was well enough to go, host and have a blast!!..
On a previous SWARM, I had mentioned that the Chippndales were going to be at Rosie's Casino and guess what...the 'chipsndales' were there! I found clipart online of the Chip and Dale, printed them on 8 1/2 x 11 and cut. A little added Copic was used to highlight some of the features. I then saved some that had various hats and using my Paint Shop Pro, cropped the hat, sized it to fit my 'guys' and then glittered them up. Now, you know they needed clothes!!..I made templates of the bow ties and 'briefs', scanned them and then had my Make The Cut cut them for me. Taking a $10.00 bill from my husband, I scanned that and sized it for tucking in...lol..

Now, what would the point be having them there if they weren't going to dance??!! I was going to dance with them, but breathing was not too good for me that day. So, Betty was sweet enough to do her thing with 'my guys'!!! You can't hear the song to well, but it's 'I like to Move It'...How can you not 'move it' when you hear that song?!!..lol..

After a day of games, fun and prizes, we had chocolate covered cherries and non-alcoholic champagne!

HoneyBee Showcase Feb. 2

Our challenge this week at Betty Bees Buzz was to do something in hearts!!..Also, Betty had shown us a site belonging to Valita who does the most awesome cards with hearts that I thought I would take her idea for inspiration and run in a different direction with it.

I took the heart and flipped it so now it became a circus tent!!..If you look at Valita's site, you notice that her hearts are cut and folded to make his and her clothing. Not sure why I pictured it upside down and tent, but here is my take on her project.  Thank you Valita for the inspiration!!

not sure if you can see inside the tent, but that's a gorilla (who got away) sticker..lol..
