Could this be the end of Halloween postings until next year?  Nope!  I still haven’t created my co-worker treat for this year – I hope to do that tomorrow but I have a few other irons in the fire this week.

Today’s card features one of the new Whipper Snapper Clings sets – Bee-Lieve In a Cure.  This set is very important to me for a couple of reasons.  The first – but less important – reason is that it features bees.  I love bees.  For me, they represent my husband (which is where I got the “Bee” in Kelly Bee) and I love being Kelly Bee to his Richie Bee.  I even have two bee tattoos!  The second reason is (and this is something I don’t talk about on my blog and may never mention on here again) 2 years ago I was diagnosed with cancer but everything is fine now – I was very lucky.

Anyway, let’s move on to more cheerful topics…how about taking a peek at my card?

I love that this set can be used for so many different occasions.   I will definitely be making a cancer-themed card ASAP but as soon as I saw the bee on the flower it reminded me of a baby card – kind of like the bee is lying in a bed…hard to explain but it works for me!  If you did click on the link to see the stamp set, you might have noticed that there is no sentiment in the set that says “Happy New Bay-Bee”.  I made that using the other sentiments in the set.  Happy and Bee are quite obvious.  “New” was created using the NE in “Bee Mine” and the W was the M in Mine turned upside down.  You get the point…

The image is coloured with copics and I glued some glamour dust on the wings for a bit of sparkle.  The paper is some fairly old TPC patterned paper I bought at Michael’s a couple of years ago and I paired it with So Saffron cardstock.  There’s a little bit of distress ink sponged around the edges and I thought about adding something to the top of the card but decided that less is more in this case.

Thanks for stopping by!
