Bee Happy Card – for My Creative Time Challenge – Throwback Thursday

I have been so busy this weekend that I did not have time to do much other than gardening and chores around the house. I created this card in 1 hour as I have to go to sleep soon 🙂 and I wanted to make sure I entered My Creative Time with Emma’s animal challenge.
I am working on a video of it but for now I am going to post only the pictures.

I used my Sure Cuts a Lot 2 to cut the circular card. I welded two 5″ circles together and cut them using black card stock. I then cut the outer ring by putting two smaller circles together (one 4.5″ and the other one 4.25″).

I cut yet another smaller circle at 4.1″ for the inner circle which I then embossed with my Cuttlebug using the “With Gratitude” embossing folder .

I cut the bee on page 25 of the Paisley cartridge at 3″. For embellishments I used the movable eyes you can find at Michaels, a heart shaped jewel that I bought in Downtown Los Angeles, and I cut the phrase “Bee Happy” again using the Sure Cuts a Lot at .65″ using one of the cute fonts I downloaded for free from

To make my bee stand out I made my own coil by using a wire and wrapping it around a pencil. I adhered one side of the “coil” to the bee using tape and the other one using a dimensional so when the bee moves the eyes move. I simply drew her little mouth by hand.

Finally I used red stars jewels I also bought in Downtown Los Angeles to give it a spark.

Hope Emma Likes it 🙂

Welcome- My first entry

Welcome to my blog. I am new to this so bear with me.

I love to make cards and I am trying to go back to my favorite hobby.. scrapbooking!

I am a busy mom with a full time job and sometimes I work long hours giving me little time to relax.

I will post some of my recent creations.

I love my Cricut machine and I just bought the Cuttlebug!

Looking forwards to more creations.
