Buzzing About

What a wonderful day!

I know it is crazy, but I am a Monday person.  I get more done on Monday than several other days put together.  I also love the first day of the month.  I flip the calendar over and there are so many possibilities.  Ahhh.  To have the first of the month on a Monday?  Heaven.

On top of all this goodness, today is the first day I can SEE.  I had Lasik on Saturday on both eyes and it went well.  I was on restricted computer/reading/eye straining activities for the past week.  The first few days were because I needed to wear glasses instead of my contacts before surgery and they were a really old prescription.  I could not see much of anything. 

Of course, when you are told you cannot do something, you want to do it more.  I was not allowed on the computer, yet a fabulous idea for a new digi kit hit me.  I could not do close up work, so I desperately wanted to play with my copics.  I could not read, so my favorite author's latest book hit the shelves right next to the pharmacy window where I waited for my eye drops.

See the pattern?

Today I jumped out of bed and hit my chores at full speed.  By lunchtime, I was able to sit down and read the March Issue of Magazine:


Feeling inspired, I stopped by 2S4U to see the sketch of the week.  Kazan's sketch 47 sparked a fun card idea.

I had some darling instyle digi stamps that I won a couple of months back.  I used cute Bendy in her bumble bee costume and my beloved copics.  

One more blog stop led me over to Couture Cardstock.  Have you stopped by there yet?  I am obsessed with them now.  ScrapStreet will be featuring their fabulous papers in an upcoming issue and we are having a blast with them.  They are simply luscious!  Today was my first try coloring on Couture Blending Paper and it is copic fabulous!  They are hosting a Month Long Party!  Today's challenge is to use yellow.  Perfect!


Supplies: Cardstock (yellow): Crate Paper, (black): Couture Cardstock, White Blending Paper: Couture Cardstock, Stamp: Instyle Stamps, Rub ons: Sweetwater, October Afternoon, Bling: Heidi Swapp, Punch: Martha Stewart, Die: Spellbinders, Tools: Cuttlebug, Scor-it, Other: rickrack.

Put all of this together and you get my BEEutiful You card.   Exactly what I needed on such a beautiful Monday.

Have a super day!
