Happy Bee Day!

Today was my youngest child's 16th birthday! My gosh time has flown by! I remember her first moment and where is she now?! At the movies with a BOY! UGH! My baby!! I tried to teach her boys are bad, stay away, join the convent! Seriously! LOL! I even dressed her up as a Nun for her first Halloween - she won cutest baby in the costume contest but, well, my plan obviously failed!
This child is the one who ALWAYS leaves me love notes, all over the place! I love surprises and still every one of them surprise me because I'm not expecting it! Now, she's into making BIG cards for different occasions and for Easter my card was a GIANT posterboard! LOL! So, anyway I decided to play her "big card" game and make her one for her birthday! I used some AWESOME Bee stamps that I ordered just to make her this card! See she's my "little b" and her Dad is my "Big B" - get it "B's"! LOL! Aaahh yeah, ahem, so here's my card;



I got the stamps from a company called "Alota Rubber Stamps" and let me tell you, Helene, the lady I corresponded with about these stamps - AWESOME! The stamps?! AWESOME! I went a little crazy and ordered 3 bee stamps but I also got one of their "grab bags" - the cheaper one if you want to know. I am here to say I am THRILLED to pieces over the stamps in that bag! I got GOBS of GREAT stamps that I could see no reason to not buy individually! Great deal, trust me! LOL! Okay so, I made this with SU cardstock, some awesome pink glittery paper I found at my LSS, and I colored it with my Koh-I-Nor pencils and Gamsol! I had these tiny little pom poms that were PERFECT for the bee's party hats and I thought little tiny rhinestones would be CUTE for their little noses too! I put Stickles on their wings too! My girl has to have her bling so I gave her as much as I could! LOL!

Well I'll leave you with a few pictures of her as she grew up, I swear she was just born yesterday.....












My baby graduates in 2 years....the tears are already trying to flow.....

Until next time....
