Sweet Bee

Good morning everyone!!! I finally got into the craft room after my wild weekend....we had 3 soccer games and two trips to Austin so we were pooped yesterday!!!  With three Grands in soccer, we have been on the road quite a bit!! Anyway...I got some happy mail yesterday and just had to ink up my new goodies!!! This 
cute little bee is from Lil' Inkers Sweet Bee set...doesn't she have the cutest face!!!She was colored with Copics, cutout, and popped up on foam dots. The background paper is Echo Park's Country Road and the sewing, ribbon, grass diecut, and the fun little puffy felt flowers finish it off. 

I thought I would share a couple pics of Mackenzie....she plays forward and is such a fast runner, just like her daddy!! David played soccer in high school and has the bad knees to prove it....it's not a game for for the faint of heart, that's for sure!!!

They lost the game but really did a great job!!!

The Iris Club's annual Iris Show is in two weeks and my hybrids are blooming now...yikes!!! I won't have any to show at this rate!!! This one is called Gaze...

 
This is called Obiwan Kenobi...I won second place in the blended catagory last year with this beauty!!

We have two soccer games Thursday night so I will share more pics of the Grands on Friday...have a great day!!!

Hiya Joan, wow your card made me feel really cheered up, it's brilliant! Love that little bee, and yes she does have a cute face. I like the stitching on your card too, I wish I had a machine to achieve this kind of stitch, I have to sew by hand and therefore only ever have a straight running stitch (nevermind).

Ooh I wish I could run around a soccer field like Mackenzie does, she must have bags of energy. Your Gaze iris has her team colour on it! CoB

What a great grandmother you are to run and see all the games, that is so wonderful and memories in the making. My goodness your Iris are gorgeous, one of my favorites since my mom grew them. Your card is adorable and loving the flowers how cute and so country.
