3M: Birds and Bears in trees :)

Hi friends! 
 I'm a little under the weather so I'm going to be blogging 
and posting without editing - yikes! :)

Today is the 9th of the month, 
the day traditionally set aside for the 3 Musketeers ~
that's Jeanette (this group was her idea baby!), Barb and I! 
We take turns sending an image to create a card with ..
this month, it was my turn ~ Yay!

But, first, I have 2 Confessions:
1.  Barb's image from last month is on my blog today, too ....
April and May are both getting to play.
2.  I bought this stamp just for the 3M because I fell head over heals
in love with the sentiment from Winnie the Pooh! ♥

First up, my card for this month:
It is just the cutie-est! :) 
The expressions on the bear's faces just melted my heart ♥ 

My second card is the 3M from last month and the hostess was Barb.
She sent us a Whipper Snapper image with 3 birds and an umbrella
which was really cute because I've seen her Whipper Snapper stash of stamps!
It's like a store!

Something fun about this card:
I colored it with my new Azure markers from Royal and Langnickle.
I found them locally on sale but wasn't sure what they were/if I needed them,
but at $6.99, it was worth giving it a chance.
I started out with a 7 pack colors.
Ran back and got a few more :)
I'm super excited to have these markers in my collection - which just grew!

So that's April, May ........
baby steps.
That's what Gramma used to always say.
One foot at a time, take baby steps :)

Oh and be sure to see what Jeanette and Barb made with this image, too!

Big hugs, bigger blessings~

  6. Wow, these are cute, Kelly!! That bear hanging from the branch reminds me of my clogging teacher. She went in the middle of the night on Tuesday with a bee extractor and cut a hole in the back wall of someone's garage to harvest bees that had build their home inside the wall there. She now has her first bee hive and is so excited!

  8. Hope you are feeling better now Kelly...
    Love your cards, the bears are so sweet, as is the sentiment (pardon the pun), and I do love how you have used the circle in the background of your beautiful birdie card.

  9. Awww, both are so sweet. That paper is so pretty (stripes) and what a sweet sentiment (honey card).

  10. Kelly--both of these cards are so dang cute. I love the layout of the bear one--and the colors are awesome! And, the birds are darling--thanks for posting!
