I'll Bee Here For You!!!

Hi My Crafty Friends

Today I wanted to share with you a card I made for my very first swap. I was not sure what I was getting my self into, hehehe. I was so overwhelmed trying to figure out how to make my card simple yet cute so it did not take me forever to create them because I had to make 20 of them. I am not a girl that likes to make 20 of something let alone even 3 of the same thing, lol, So this was for sure a challenge. Plus with my little one year old mobile now she is into EVERYTHING!! I thought it would get easier to craft as she got older, WOW was I wrong. So after I sent these cards off I was thinking I would never participate in another swap but after I received the cards from the other crafty lady's it was well worth all of the work and maybe I will participate in another one but not till this little baby is a little older. I am so thankful for nap time and a wonderful hubby!!!!!!!!

So here is my super simple card I created.........

Super cute. I know what you mean about making duplicates or triples. I like to make one unique card too.

This is just so cute! You are right about them getting into more, not less...just keep your sharp things like cutters way up high!

Even though I am sure it was a bit of work, it turned out so cute. Love the little face, so colorful too. Crafting with little ones is a challenge isn't it?

So very fun and I loved the little face on this cutie, the embossing and your doodle work from the Bumble Bee is great touch :)
