Bees and Buttons Card and Creativity Kit


Hey there Paper Peeps! I’m sorry for being a day late posting this kit which I had hopped to get in yesterday….but DH took me to town to buy paint and bead board paneling…so I got a bit distracted : (  

IMG_3729I created this card with some yummy little paper pretties from my Bees and Buttons Creativity Kit. It’s chock full of button cards, postcards, vintage images and pre-tied satin bows.  I can only think of about a million projects to make with these lovely bits and pieces. I added double sided patterned papers that coordinate with the images so you can get right to creating fabulous projects. Use them to make cards, scrapbook, tags and labels or make a vintagy banner!

IMG_3728I was able to create 5 finished full sized cards….with lot’s of pieces leftover. I added some solid cardstock and bits and pieces from my scrap and salvage box.  The Gingham Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. To get a kit of your own….hop on over Bees and Buttons Creativity Kit. I’ll be sharing more of the cards from the kit in the next few days…..so come back soon!

Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

Plants In My Yard…..a Beginners Guide


Finally warm enough outside for the plants to start coming in. Here is a brief tour…I do not remember the names of most of these plant-trees. I will refer to them as I call them IRL.

We have a pair of these lovely flowering trees in our front yard. I call them “Bee Food”




Under these trees sound like the revving of motorcycles in the distance…there are hundreds of bees…thankfully I am not afraid of them!

Rabbit Food:


The packaging at the plant store lied….this shrub was only supposed to get to 12 inches across. 

IMG_3426No matter how careful you are…..I will attack you with my thorns shrub:


The ” I can’t remember if I planted these…or are they weeds???”


The reason we have sooo many deer in our yard:


The “You better enjoy them while they last flowering tree…one good wind or rain storm and it’s about to snow pink petals up in here!”

The “Shouldn’t these be bigger by now bushes”


Whole lotta purply flowers:


Whole lotta lavender flowers:

Hello Paper Peeps….I’m just popping in to share a lovely collage sheet I created this cold dark morning. Hopefully working with Bee’s and flowers will get me into a summer state of mind.
