Happy New Year!


I hope you are all having a wonderful New Year's eve and being Safe! I am feeling lowsy, so I'm staying home. I'm not much of a party animal anyway so, that isn't a 'new' thing for me. My kids are all out partying tho. (in a very 'non' party sense of the word)
I finally managed to escape to my craft room for a few minutes today. I need to start on my swaps for Leadership so....I'm going to have to find more time to get in there!
This little card is made from one of the catalog pre-order sets that will be in the new catalog that comes out January 18th. We haven't had any Bee sets in the SU catalog for quite a while. These little guys are just so cute, I had to get them. I stamped the hive with basic black, colored it in with a mustard marker and then added some clear embossing using the Versamarker. Bees are stamped twice; once onto the hive paper and once onto scrap paper. I cut out the bodies from the scrap paper and mounted them over the bees on the hive paper. This is my option for popping up items without having to cut out the little bitty parts, like the legs on these bees. I added some clear stickles to the wings instead of 2 way glue and dazzling diamonds because...I didn't want to get up. Tummy ache. Anyway, I think this may be close to a swap for next week. I will most likely change the colors and add some more bling....we shall see!
