Wow, I can't believe how long it has been taking me to post new cards this last year.  I am going to try really hard to make more time for blogging, since I actually love it, and I follow many bloggers.  This little card was made using the Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridge for the image, the sentiment was made from Close To My Heart's Wicked stamp set, and the paper is from DCWV's Spookytime stack.  I have another one coming too, so stay tuned!

I am finally back and have a lot to share

Well, it certainly has been a while since I have maintained my blog!!! I am finally back and ready to run with it full force.  My husband is in the Air Force and this past year has been a whirlwind.  We moved from Alaska to Idaho, bought our first house, I got a new full time job right away, and we both finished our Master's degrees in business.  Whew!!!!  You can certainly see why there was no time for blogging, ha ha.  However, things have settled down a bit, (well, not really) and I am finally at a point where I have made blogging and my etsy shop a priority again.  I won't be moving again for a really long time and am able to dedicate time to the things I love doing so much, which is crafting and sharing those crafts with you.  I am currently still a Close To My Heart consultant, I have my Etsy shop, Bee-Happy Cards and I have just started a new business selling vintage and homemade items with my sister, called The County's Bounty!!!  Our new shop will appear online soon, so look for updates on that.  I am very excited about it, as we hope to make it our full time careers in the future.  In the meantime, thank you so so much for visiting my blog.  I look forward to posting a LOT of projects starting today and many times a week!!!  I also look forward to getting to know more crafters out there, so please leave your blog link every chance you get and I be certain to visit you too!!!!!
This set of cards I made recently and have posted on my Etsy Shop.  These cards were made using various patterned papers and cricut die cut images.They are all A2 sized cards.

Funky Chicken card and more

The chicken is from Country Life cart, the funky chicken sentiment is from Joy's life stamps, the large circle stamp on the second card is a couple of stamps from a snowflake set from Martha Stewart which I got at Michael's this winter.  The antique brad is from Close To My Heart.

Two more cards I made very quickly using Once upon a princess cartridge, elegant edges cart, Stampin' Up! patterned paper, Doodlecharms cartridge, Lacy Labels cartridge, Cardz TV stamps and Scrappy Moms stamps for the sentiments.

Here are two cards I made this morning before work! I fit crafting time in wherever and whenever I can and that usually means early in the morning before work!  The Yee-Haw card I made using DCWV yellow cardstock, Bazzill beige cardstock, and patterned paper with a wood grain from I got years ago from Hobby Lobby.  The Yee-Haw sentiment is from Cardz Tv with Mary and the boots are from the County Fair Cartridge.  The "rope" is braiding cord from Walmart and the wooden button is from Close To My Heart.
The Make a Wish card was made using the same cardstock as the card above.  The patterned cardstock is from Stampin' Up! and the hat image I think, is from Doodlecharms cartridge, but I could be wrong.  I will have to check on that! hahah Finally, the sentiment is from KAndrew Designs stamps.

Boxed Gift Tag Set

This little treat box/tag set I made using the Art Philosophy Cartridge and coordinating stamps from Close to My Heart, and the Triple treat flower stamp and coordinating punches from Stampin' Up! I made 5 sets for a friend who is giving them to friends as going away gifts.
