I didn't think anything of it at first but my sister's birthday is on Sunday and I haven't made her card yet. As I thought about it I realized that this was a sign from Mom to get "bees-y" on that. Some of you don't know that my sister used to call our mom "Queen Bee". When Mom passed away a few years ago I noticed a bee outside my car as I was getting in. Then at Mom's apartment I noticed another bee flying around the entrance. Once we got to the church for the service there was another bee flying lazily around. I started to believe that this was Mom. I know that sounds weird but when you are grieving you latch on to strange things. I used to be very scared of bees but now I feel more comfortable when I see one. Thinking it's Mom makes them less scary. :)
So I got busy and made my sister's card. Take a look:
Notice the little bee? It's from a retired set but I loved that bee and have to keep it. I did use the Elements of Style from the Mini Catalog. It's in the big book too so I ended up picking that set for my Sale-a-bration rewards. As a demonstrator I earn free stamp sets throughout the year.
Well I'm off to do some running around. Don't forget to send in your Ice Cream Cards! I think Becky is in the running for winning this month. LOL. I'll post the pictures of the cards in August.
