Challenge #12 "B" Happy!

MONDAY, JUNE 8th, 2009

Don’t Worry “B” Happy!

Today’s Res-Q-Challenge is brought to you by Jean (naturecoastcrafter on SCS):

Sometimes I have to remind myself just how fortunate I am and to stop and just BE in the moment. In my youth, I used to ruffle when I was told to “Have a Nice Day” or to “Be Happy.” I figured it was nobody’s business or concern how I chose to “be.” With maturity, though, I’ve learned that these sentiments have good purpose and are prescriptions for my body and my soul. So forgive me if it ruffles, but “Don’t Worry ‘B’ Happy!”

Pull out some cheery papers and colors and create something that features a B; “be” that an image that starts with the letter b or “bee”utiful embellishments or even the letter B itself. No restrictions other than to use your “B” as a focal part of your project. Then, think about sending it to someone who could use a gentle reminder to “Be Happy!”

My card’s “B” is obvious—the image is by Stampendous, “Bee Buddies;” “Bee message” also by Stampendous; designer paper by PaperTrey, 2008 Bitty Dot Basics. The embellishments are organdy ribbon and heart brads. I used basic black and white cardstock and die cut the image and frame with Labels Two Nestabilities by Spellbinders. The image was colored with Stampin’ Up Watercolor pencils and blender pen and a Gelly Roll sparkly pen. Card size: 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

Remember, there are no time limits, vendor restrictions or other rules for the challenge. It's only for fun and inspiration. When uploading your card to Splitcoaststampers, Papercraft Planet, StampTV or any other site, please use the keyword RESQ12. And whenever you upload to a site or you blog, be sure to link back here using so we can all see what you've done! You can use Mr. Linky below!
