Buzz, Brag, and Bee Happy Friday - February 11th

Welcome to Buzz, Brag and Bee Happy Friday! This is the day where the HoneyBees share whatever is happening on their blogs, in their lives, and whatever they are excited about, and we invite you to join with us, and share your good news, too

I had a great time "Tying One On" with ribbon this week, and the mini album above is featuring a braided frame around the oval medallion.  I was inspired for this by our friend, Bonnie McLain, over at her Love, Light and Peace Blog.  I could have linked you directly to her gorgeous braid on Feb. 3rd, but want to be sure you have the chance to see some of her other amazing work, too!

I thought I'd share a flashback Valentine today, along with a very cheesy Valentine poem... just in case you are looking for something for the inside of your card...  

Roses are red
Violets are blue~
I'm so happy
That I have you!

Roses are orange
Their leaves are green~
You make me feel
Just like a Queen!

Roses are white
and some are yellow~
You are my hero,
You handsome fellow!

Roses are purple, pink,
and sterling silver~
I will love you
for ever and ever!

Some are red,
like deep, rich wine~
Will you be
My Valentine?

(I told you it was cheesy!)  But anyway, what will you be putting in YOUR Valentine's card?  Will you write a poem, a letter, or stamp a sentiment?  


Happy Friday! Love is in the air...I get to spend today with a few of my favorite girlfriends; we call our little group the "Design Divas." We try to get together once each month and share recent cards, LOs, or projects we have made. There is always lots of inspiration to be found in our monthly meetings. I can't wait to see them later today! My weekend will be off to a great start!

I made this little card yesterday. I was actually looking for my SU butterflies embosslit, and I can't find it! I am an organized person, and I am so frustrated that it is not in any logical place I can think of...I opted for my Martha Stewart butterfly punches. Has this ever happened to you?

I used my cricut cartridge Plantin Schoolbook to cut the hearts and I embossed them with the Cuttlebug Birds & Swirls embossing folder. The adhesive lace is by Hero Arts and the paper from Creative Imaginations.


How was your week?? I've been kinda busy, but not 'scrappy' busy.  That is why today I'm just going to BRAG!!  I received an email from my daughter-in-law that Nina got a Silver Certificate and a Citizens Award.  She missed getting a Gold by one A on her report card.  I am so proud of her for all those Bs and the A!!..The Citizens Award was because she is helpful, courteous and all the great stuff in a student that a teacher appreciates. Not being sent to the 'office' is a big she didn't take after me on that

This is Nina with a doll she recieved for Christmas.  Funny, she acts so grown up at 7, but still loves her dolls..I love her soooooo much!!!


We hope you are having a wonderfully creative week, and will post your cards and other creations to our LINKZ on Wednesday.  Use ribbon in any creative way, and post there! 

The LINKZ here is for posting whatever makes you happy!!  You could be the winner of our Feb. Blog Candy package!!!  All comments and posts will be eligible, and the winner will be announced on March 2nd!


and the HoneyBees

Betty, your card is so pretty and your poem makes me smile! I am so glad you shared both with us :)

Roe, I am in love with your sweet Nina. I am proud of her too for being a great student and citizen. She is a gorgeous little girl. I hope there is a rule in her house that she can date after she is married, after she is 40 LOL.
