Buzz, Brag, and Bee Happy Friday - May 27th

Happy Friday, and welcome to BUZZ, BRAG and BEE HAPPY!   It's a more "informal" day in the hive, but very important, because we talk about the BUZZ in the BIZZ, BRAG about what we've been doing, and tell about what is helping us BEE HAPPY!  The best part is... we invite you to join right in!!!  Leave comments to share things to BUZZ about... what do you want everyone to know????  What are you stoked about?  What is exciting in your hive?  Are there blog hops you want us to come to?

In the BUZZ Department we'd like to let you know about a very special challenge starting up on June 1st by a very special young lady named Madison, over at Funky Card blog.  She is starting this unique "Pay it Forward" type of challenge, where the cards made will be sent to one person who is suffering some sort of trial in their life.  She will post the challenge, collect the cards, send them to the recepient, and then post a photo and response from the person receiving the cards.  Madison is a high schooler with a big talent, and a BIGGER heart!  Check out her blog here, and I do hope you will join us in helping Spread the Love!!

Happy Friday! I have a potential customer (an antique dealer) that is requesting hand-made thank you cards. I started with motivation from HoneyBee Court. Court made a thank you card recently that I fell in love with; see the second card in this post.

Here is another version:

And here is my set of 4:

I used BasicGrey papers, my Cricut, and rub-ons from TLC. What are you working on? Please share with us by linking to today's post. If you have a summer-themed project, link it to this week's challenge in our previous post.
Honey Bee Judy Ford here. I am just 3 weeks post op but doing very, very well. All 4 drains are out and incision is healing well without any signs of infection. Continued thanks for everyone's support and prayers for my recovery. Especially thank you to my dear husband, Don. Without his help this last 3 weeks would have been darn near impossible. I am a very lucky honeybee!!!
Hope everyone's summer is starting to take shape and weather is starting to get better. Lots of rain here in Michigan but my thoughts and prayers go to all those in those awful tornadoes path. What devastation Mother Nature can produce!!! God Bless you all!
Let us know what you are doing this summer, your dreams, your projects, your memories!!! Happy Sharing!!!

and the HoneyBees
