Saturday, June 5, 2021
Hey there, friends! Happy first Saturday of June 2021! Boy, it's so hard for me to comprehend it, but in another 12 days, my younger daughter will be 21 years old! It seems to me that it wasn't too long ago when I shared here that she was turning 16; and now here we are a mere 5 years later, and she will be old enough to drink legally! 😭 Where did my babies go??
Anyway, that isn't the reason for my post today...it's the first day for our Anything Goes challenge at Catch the Bug!

Hello friends! Happy June 1st! As usual, these years just keep flying on by at the speed of light, or so it seems to me. Well, with it being the start of a new month, that means it's also the start of a new challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies...where it's always anything goes using critters. This month we are being sponsored by Beccy's Place:

Hey there my crafty friends! How ya been? Things in my neck of the woods are going strong. Hubby has been busy planting a vegetable garden in the evenings, which has left me a bit more time in my craft room. Not that I have made much of anything, but I have gotten a *little bit* of organizing done. 😄
Anyhow, today is my favorite day of the month, where I get to collaborate and hop with Squirrels Gone Nutz, aka the Squirrel Squad. We are still making that ever-so-valiant attempt to use those crafty things in our stash that we have forgotten about or are hoarding (WHAT?!? NO WAY!) 😆 Our theme/supply for this month is BIRTHDAY, and ALPHABET DIES. Here is my card:

Hello friends, and welcome back to my blog! I'm back today to share my card for the current Stella Says Sketch challenge at the Catch the Bug blog. Here's the sketch:
And here's my card:
I took a few liberties with the sketch...actually because I forgot I was to be using the sketch! Luckily my card turned out pretty close to it anyway! 😉 I used a Bird's Cards free cut file for the honeycomb pattern, layered it onto a lighter yellow layer of cardstock, and jazzed it up a bit with some Brushed Corduroy oxide ink around the edges, and on some select cut out pieces. I also mixed the ink with water and then splattered the pieces for more interest. All the hexagon pieces are popped up on one layer of foam tape, while the image oval was given 2 layers of foam tape. I decided not to add a sentiment just yet, although it will probably be something simple like "hi." Oh yes, and the image is Bees - Small Flower, which was a recent freebie.
