Hey yall!!! Phew thank gosh it's Thursday! This year is already flying by, I mean we're almost done wih January! We'll be celebrating 2012 before we know it!!  But that means I need to get realllllly moving on Birthday cards then! It's my goal this year to make and send out a birthday card to most of my family this year. I would love to send out to everyone (cousins, aunts, uncles, 2nd-3rd cousins and so forth), but geez I would never be doing anything else if I done that, and honestly I don't know everyones birthday...oops! Ahh well if it wasn't posted on Facebook, they wouldn't know mine either lol so we're all even!
 Anyways, on to my card this week! This card was made for my mother in law. I love the Bingo sets that Regina has at The Cutting Cafe, so for this card I chose to go with the Bingo Card Set Printable Stamp set. There are SOOOOO MANY pieces in this set, that you could make a card for any occassion! Hopefully she'll get what I was going for with the Happy 'Bee' Day, but if not, she'll think it says HAPPY DAY! lol I used the bee from the Animal and Bug Mini Colored Circle Printable Stamp Set and cut it out to put on top of my ribbon flower, layering it twice to give it some depth. Used some black wire from my stash to make his antennas. Not real thrilled with the colors but it's her favorite colors and her card so what can I I probably would've threw this paper out since it came in one of my stacks but I think I'll put it in a special 'Mother In Law' drawer. 
 I hope you enjoyed checking it out and as always thank you for visiting and taking time to leave me little comments! They're always fun to read and always appreciated!! Now what are you headed for, head on over to The Cutting Cafe and check out all the inspiration that's posted there, along with all the wonderful stamp sets and cutting files and see what you can be inspired to make!!
