Bee My Friend and Candies!

Hello, my friends! =) Hope you are having a wonderful week so far. Here is a card that I made using an image from Whiff of Joy Stamps' February Release.


Hee... Aren't Mr. Bee and Henry adorable? This is such a sweet image! =)


This image is called Bee My Friend and it's stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then cut and embossed using a Labels One die.


The patterned paper is from Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 Designer Paper Pad by My Mind's Eye. I used WoJ's Butterflies die to create the fun edge. I also stamped Hero Arts beautiful Leaf Floral Background on the card base using PTI's Classic Kraft ink. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

Now it's time for...


Yay! The last time you saw my candy jar here, there was a candy and yes! I have candies for you once again! =) It's been a long time since I have had a candy and I really want to thank you all for your support especially for the past few months. I have been absent and have been through some hard times, but you stock with me and gave me your love and support. Really, I can't thank you enough for that!


No, I can't give you the glass candy jar that I made, but I can show you the set of jars that I made for the glassblowing classes that I took back in 2006-2007. Ahh.... good days in the hot shop... =) I still miss glassblowing and hoping one day I/we (hubby ended up taking the class, too) will be able to try it again. Okay, enough for the blah blah, here is Candy #1:


Here is what's included in Candy #1:
- A full 6x6 pad of Dear Mr. Claus Mini Deck from Cosmo Cricket.

And here is Candy #2:

So gorgeous sweetie! You colored him perfectly, I feel animals and critters are so hard to color but you always do such a perfect job!

Beate said...

Alice, no need to enter me in the drawing. I just wanted to stop by and ooh and aah over your latest card.

Your coloring looks gorgeous as always. Love the butterfly border on top of the paper.

I can't believe you made that jar yourself. It looks beautiful! You are a woman of many talents.
Hugs and smiles

Alice, your cards always provide great inspiration! I can't believe that you made those glasses yourself! Glassblowing class sounds fun. Have you ever done "candyblowing" in Taiwan? That is the closest crafty thing I've ever blown and it is not easy!! Thanks for giving us the chance to win! Take care! ^_^
