A LITTLE NOTE

Hello friends.  Good news here, our local stamp store opened back up on 
Tuesday.  So happy For Sharon, the owner, she has been working so
hard to provide her customers with a new online store and shipping boxes
of stamps and supplies daily and also allowing those of us who live close by
to pickup curbside.  In addition she has been having videos of new product
that has arrived at the store with demos too on facebook.

My card today is a digi from Jan's Digi Stamps by Jan Mathew.


Digi - A Little Note
Inside Sentiment inside included in the set "Apart in distance
But, Not in Heart!
Sentiment on the front of the card is computer generated

long ago.

BSS IDEA - You Make MY HEART RACE

WELCOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF IDEA.

I have a fun card for you today.  Great guy cards can be made with these
Honey Bee stamp sets and thought it was a good time to show you these
with Father's Day coming up.




 the inside sentiment




Car and Racing Flag Stamps - Honey Bee
Car Show (HBST-175)  Sentiments (Your're A Classic (HBST-176)
I ordered them from the online store.
Paper - Royal Blue, White and Silver Mirror card stock.
Blue Ink is Versafine Clair - Paradise
Embossing Folder - Diamond Plate
Oval Die - Gina Marie Design
Colored with Copics
Used Glossy Accents on the car.

This is a fun card and I was so pleased how it turned out, but getting a
good picture of it was hard, because the Mirror paper is so hard to photograph
without picking up any colors that are reflected in it.

Thanks for stopping by today.  
Have a great week.

A BOY and HIS DOG


Hello friends.  Friday already!  Did some needed weed pulling and flower bed work 
in the yard this morning, until it got very dark and cloudy and the rain came down.
Tomorrow is another day.

This card is a very precious Digi from Jan Mathew.  She has just recently began
a new Challenge Blog which I am going to enter this card into.

How precious is this sweet image of the little boy and his dog sharing a cool
drink from the hose?


Because the digi cuts off the back end of the pup, I added a barn door to the scene.

I added the clouds and grass, and lots of stickles to the water streaming from
the hose, but it doesn't show up in the picture.  Colored with Copics.

I'm going to enter my card into the JDS Challenge Blog

Thanks for stopping by today
Until later.........

BSS IDEA -JUST BEE-CAUSE

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

Hello friends.  Good to be back With a new
card project this Monday morning.

I saw this card design on pinterest and
thought I would try one and share it with you today.

Here is a link to the gal that put a card on pinterest
using this design with measurements and pictures.


Buckle Card
Stamps and matching die set is Honeybee Stamps
Sentiment Stamps are Whimsey Stamps
Paper-Black, two different colors of yellow card stock, white with black
dots and black with white dots card stock
I used a small rectangle die to cut the slit for the flap to go through.
You could easily measure and cut it out with scissors.


I popped up the hive on the front as well as the bees.


This is the inside of the card when you open the outside flap.

The inside of the card

I finally got out into the yard and planted a small
garden, just peppers and tomatoes and some flower
pots.  Felt good to be outside and the warm sun felt awesome.

Hope everyone is doing well.
The stamps and dies I used today I purchased
from Sharon's online store, very grateful that
she was able to open an online store so quickly.
And her videos ON FACEBOOK have been a nice relief too.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a good week. Stay safe.

Until next week.
