What's the Buzz?

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday! :) I'm so sorry I've been gone so long from the blogging world. I was so busy last week with work and getting ready for the Holidays that I didn't have any time at all to get into the craft room. Did you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving (for those here in the US)? We sure did, we always go up to my sister's (who lives very close so it's only about an hour drive) and my family meets there. We always eat awesome food (and way too much of it) :) Hubby and I also did some Black Friday shopping, but aside from Target and Michael's, I wasn't too impressed with the sales this year. Aside from that, I've been busy keeping up with everything going on at work and trying to get ready for Christmas. It really did me good to get back into the craft room last night and I'm excited to share my project with you today :)

As you know if you've been reading my blog lately, I was lucky enough to be asked to join the Joy's Life Stamps Design Team. Every other week, I am joined by several of the ladies from the fabulous DT for a challenge. Our challenge this week was to make a "boy" themed project. This was definitely a challenge for me! I love making girly projects and pink is my favorite color. I always struggle with boy themed projects, but I'm actually really happy with how my project turned out :) This adorable image is from My Scrap Chick (the Take Flight pattern set). I cut the image out using my Silhouette, did some inking around my image with SU Chocolate Chip ink, and then put everything together. The face stamp is from Peachy Keen Stamps. I also did some doodling with my white gel pen. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from MME. The corners were made using a SU punch. The adorable sentiment is of course from Joy's Life Stamps (You're So Punny set). What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thank you all so much as always for stopping by. Make sure to stop by on Friday and join us for the Joy's Life Holiday Blog Hop. Have a wonderful day!
