JUST B CUZ

Oh, I think this is becoming one of my favorite sets!! I love the versatility of the Just B stamp set - I have seen so many fabulous projects done with it and so I finally broke down and ordered it and have been stamping with it all week! (shhhh....don't tell the doc!) I have been resting my hand, it is still verrrrry sore, but not creating makes me depressed, so it's either stamping or Prozac - although I think Prozac may be the cheaper habit - LOL! So anyway, I made this fun little card using colors I NEVER hardly ever use on a card - basic black and yoyo yellow card stock! But, it really worked for the theme, I mean come on, it IS bees, *wink*! So, I went with it! Everything on this card is Stampin' Up! except the little chipboard B, seems I am out of mine from SU! (note to self order more - oh wait, there is a chipboard special next month, whoohoo!) so I had to use one from my stash, but I covered it in yoyo yellow classic ink and then stamped the bees all over it and it fits right in! I cute the little bee image out and popped it up on dimensionals as well - isn't it cute??!! I will leave you with a full recipe below so if you have any questions, just holler!! Or as my friend Roxy says, "holla"!

Card Recipe:
Paper - Basic Black card stock, YoYo Yellow card stock, So Saffron card stock
Inks - Black Stazon, YoYo Yellow Classic Stampin' Ink, Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker
Stamps - Just Be Stamp Set
Accessories - Basic Black and YoYo Yellow narrow grosgrain ribbon, Black Brad, Mat Stack and Paper Piercer, Ticket Corner Punch, Large and Small Oval Punches, Corner Rounder, Stampin Dimensionals

Hope your hand gets better soon! I know it's crazy when someone says not to stamp...that's when I think they are crazy for sure! Stamping keeps my sanity!

Love this card, girlie !!! Dawn Griffith uses this set a lot and I'm thinking that I will need this set soon too....I think you're right...Prozac probably would be cheaper but I'm sure stamping is a better and longer "high" !!! But having said that...you do need to take care of yourself !!! Can you hear me saying that in my best mothering voice !!! :)
Have a good day my friend !
