Birthday Beez

A new week and a new Crafty Boots Challenge theme gets underway. Or the next fortnight we are asking you to share anything but a card with us – ATCs are fine, but no regular cards please. The first of my DT pieces that I’m sharing with you is this altered heart:


I had great fun get covered in paint, although Mr Beez was not too impressed with the little (well, quite large if I’m honest!) spill that I had. Thankfully, the carpet that took the hit is being replaced very soon!!! In addition to lots of background stamps I have also used some of my Stampotique favourites – medium bee, large sunflower and Agatha text.

This is also my second project that I’m also sharing over at the Stampotique Designer’s Challenge Blog for the text background theme. I’ve actual used two different text stamps but you can really only see the typeface one clearly in the photo’s  and not the scribbly one!


Today also sees me becoming another year older as I celebrate my birthday.  Have a look at the fabulous sunflowers that arrived from my lovely, not to mention very kind and generous, friend Dionne:


Aren’t they stunning? Best of all, they make me smile every time I walk into my living room. For only the second time in my entire life I have to work on my birthday so I am looking forward to getting home tonight and having these gorgeous sunflowers waiting to cheer me up!

Thanks for buzzing by.

  1. Happy Birthday Mrs Beez.

    Great heart, I love your decoupage work, I also love that you have included some of my favourite stamps. Not such good news about the carpet!

    I hope you are not working too hard today.

    Dionne xx

    PS I have just found out that you share your birthday with my new nephew-in-law.

  2. Im sorry but I have had to delete your post for our challenge. Our rules state that you can only enter our challenge along with 4 others at the same time. I encourage you to enter again with another project. Thank you

    • Hi Claudine – I haven’t entered this in any other challenges other than SDC. it is linked to the new Crafty Boots challenge, but as a DT piece and not an entry. All the other links on this post are to Stampotique itself and a shout out for a fellow blogger 🙁 🙁 🙁

    • Thank you Ros – trouble is once you’ve spilled once, keeping clean doesn’t seem to matter so much, or is that just me :)!

I really appreciate it when people take time to leave a comment, thank you so much for doing so :)
