I am a stay-at-home mom. I have been married to my handsome and wonderful husband for over 14 years. Right now he's battling stomach/esophagus cancer. So I do my best to craft when I can. I have two wonderful boys. My oldest, Garett, is 24 and served 5 years in the Navy. He's been home since the beginning of the year (2014). We are very proud of him. My youngest, "DJ", is 13 and in the 8th grade. I have two Border Collie mix dogs (Koda and Rugu), one Calico cat (Hydie), one orange Tabby cat (Bosley), one Tea Cup Chihuahua (Gigi...I LOVE her sooo much), a Chiweinnie (Lily....sweetest dog ever), and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua (Connor....AAALL boy).

HapBee Father's Day

HapBee Father's Day

My new dies...the bumble bees and the hive.  I thought it would be a cute Father's Day card to make for my Dad.  As I was creating it I made it so that the "dad" bumble bee was waiting for the "child" bumble bee to come into the hive.  Now that my card is finished I started singing "The Birds and the Bees".  I remember how my dad took me aside and told me all about "life".  I really didn't even plan this scene to be that way.  "Let me tell you 'bout the birds and the bees and the flowers and the trees..."  The only thing this scene lacks is the birds, lol.

The background is handstamped using a home made cardstock stencil.  My idea was inspired by Kittie Caracciolo.  It's SUPER EASY...and the results are impressive. You can view her tutorial by clicking on the link below: (will open another window)
