Bees and Buying Presents Cards

It is all about crafty fun and all about two totally different themes.  Sometimes when I go in my craft cave, I have no idea what I will be working on .  Other days I know exactly.  :)  Today was a "no idea" day so I visited some challenge blogs looking for inspiration.  So the "Hapbee Birthday" is a result of my looking around different challenges.  My busy bees will be buzzing by:

Stamping Sensations (In An English Country Garden)
Allsorts Challenge (Happy Birthday)
Shopping Our Stash (May Flowers)
I wanted to join in at the Christmas Kickstart Challenge since their theme is "S Is For Snarky Christmas" this time around.  You know how I like to do funny cards.  ;)  Doesn't my vintage image look like she would buy her own Christmas present?  ;)  She is going to be joining these challenges:

Christmas Kickstart Challenge (S Is For Snarky Christmas)
Jingle Belles (Vintage or Retro Vibe)
Stinkin' Inkers Challenge (All Tied Up -- Use Twine, Ribbon or Fibers)

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope your weekend has been a good one.  We have had beautiful weather and I have been enjoying staying outside on the porch with the ceiling fans going and my nose stuck in a book.  :)  I read a whole book yesterday (make sure you read The Silent Patient...so good).  As always, stay crafty!!!

Thanks for playing at The Christmas Kickstart Challenge, Beverly, your card is brilliant! I love that sentiment and yes, she does look like she'd have to buy her own gift, Jo x
