Happy Friday - BEE Happy!

Good Morning, it's Friday!  I am always giddy on Friday.  It's my favorite day of the week!

Today I have a cute tag to share with you.  I had made it for the Fresh Brewed Design 24 Hour challenge and then Heather extended the deadline, so I still get to enter it.  Anyway, I am not a very organized crafter so making something in 24 hours is hard work! LOL!

 The image is called Cutie Pie Honey Bee.  Isn't she adorable?!

Well I hope you all have a great day.  Take care.

Delightful Thursday - For Dad

Good Morning and welcome to Delightful Thursday with Digital Delights.   This week, we are making projects for dad.  You know Father's Day is coming.

This week I used Guitar Maycee and License Plate Love Sentiment Set to create a shaped card.  I guess I'm showing my age here but for those who can't tell what shape this is, it's a TV.  Yes, TV's used to be square and had antennas on the top. 

My daughter,had no idea what this was or what an antenna was.  LOL!

I hope you will join us this week celebrating Dad.  Be sure to stop by the blog and see all the wonderful creations the DT made.

Take care.

Do You Remember.....

OMG, today was field day at my daughter's school.  Do you remember field day?  It was the day we waited for all year when I was in school.

I volunteered at field day today and let me just say...I am NOT in shape and I am too OLD for field day!   Those kids, the sun and the heat have worn me OUT!

I didn't get to see all the activities they played, but these were the few I did get to see.

Take care.

Fun Friday with Fresh Brewed Designs

Good Morning.  It's Fun Friday!!!!
Today is a busy day.  Later this evening the Girl is participating in the talent show at school.  I can't wait.  She is singing a-ccapella.  She has been infatuated with a-capella singing ever since we saw Pitch Perfect the movie.

Ok so today I have projects to share with you using images from Fresh Brewed Designs.

Summer is coming and so is summer camp, so I created a luggage tag for my daughter's summer tote bag.  The image I used is called Rylee.

Isn't that cute?

For my second project, I used: Fuzzy Chick with Bow stamp & One Cute Chick sentiment.

I love the look of coloring on kraft cardstock.  I'm trying to get better at it.

Have a great day, everyone.

Take care.
