Happy New Week!

Hello and very welcome to a new week here with little old me. Hope you had a good time since last? Here it has been ok and I am happy about that. That means things has gone smoothly for a change. LoL

I have a little Bee collection with cards to show again. This little image is from Pink Pretticoat and it has really been set to work. The first time I used it was together with some honeycomb designer papers from the same company. This time I have paired my little bee up with three different papers from Bearly Mine Designs. They come frome the digi sets called Spring Flight and Spring Delight. Even if the image is tiny it's coloured with my Letraset family and I have also used a mixture of dimond dust clear and gold to get some glitter effect on the wings, just because it's fun.

Also used is pearls, liquid pearls, Frosted lace glitter stickles and flowers in different variations from Wild Orchid Crafts. These little set of cards has also been so kind to allow me use up some of my mountain big pile of card stock scraps and it felt so good to do that. I actually got so inspired that I took the time to sort that box out and now it's standing on my desk with all pieces in it sorted into colours. How much easier will it be to use the scraps now? I just have to sort the other box out that is bursting with left overs from all designer papers that I can't throw out. Have a back up plan for those if I need to and it's to give it to kindergarten or school for the kids to use. They are always grateful to get stuff like that.

Anyway, before I get totally lost in my writing here. I didn't actually just sit down to make these for the fun of it. LoL We have a new challenge up over at Crafty Card Makers and the theme is Belated birthdays. In other words, make a card that really states that you are late with your card. It has to have a sentiment that makes that clear. And I am always late with my birthday cards, especially to my pen pals, so I thought I make a bunch while I am at it. LoL And yes, I do write my letters by hand because I don't think there is anything like getting a handwritten letter in the mail box. So much more lovely than getting an e-mail even if that is also nice. But there is a feeling of more thoughtfulness and someone has really sat down to take the time to communicate with just you. I just love it, and I think I always will. :)

Sponsoring us this time is Milk and Coffee with five images of winner's choice. Also sponsoring this time is  Sir Stampalot with a lovely prize of a set of stamps and a embossing folder. See the challenge blog for more details.
