ISO: Kevlar Beekeeper's Pajamas

At 3 AM, I awoke to what sounded like a police helicopter or military drone buzzing right above my face. I shot out of bed, terrified, cats flying off me, and we tried to find it.


Of course I could not go back to sleep.

I'm too tired to be terrified right now, but I will be again as soon as the sun goes down and I'm locked in a dark room with "it" again.

All I am asking for today in return for my card is a set of pajamas, Kevlar, in a beekeeper suit style so I can get some sleep. If it has little pockets for Maddie and Splotchy great. If not - too bad. They should have caught IT before IT was hovering over my face at 3 AM waiting to murder me.

Did I mention how tired I am? Because I'm really tired. No one should have to get up at 3 on Sunday. Well some people should have to, but I'm too tired to list them here.

I'm bringing you my final card for our Clearsnap Product focus today - and yes, I had to use that Jelly ink again with the blues. It's just too pretty. I did a wrinkle-free distress ink smooshing for the background, and then flicked water and white ink onto it. I added die cuts from our sneak peek Christmas Bundle available this month - Carols of Christmas, as well as the hugs from Lovely Words, that I just snipped to remove from the circle. The background was done on watercolor paper and I put it on the thick version of Whisper White for the card base. Easy and fun - you can run the dies all through at once so it's a quick card.

I feel like sticking that little deer on pretty much every card I make. I cannot get enough of the dies in that bundle.

A quick note on the Hero Arts kits for those of you that stopped by on Monday - the subscription option they have makes sure you never miss a kit - because they typically sell out in hours. So if you want to subscribe for September, you can do that here - but you need to do it by 8/28 at 8 PM PST to get the September Kit.

  1. Lovely card! I hate when the no-see-umms sound like they are big enough to fly off with me in it's talons and my mighty protectors show that they are really just big old scaredy cats! Such little pussys! They run and hide under the bed till the lights go out again to come back to their soft spot! Gotta love the little fur balls TFS!

  2. Love this background! Gorgeous!! So what do you think it was flying around your head?
