You are one in buzzillion

My aunt asked me to make her some cards. I am honored but it seems when I create for someone else  my mojo goes out the window. When I create for me it seems to flow a little better. What do you do when your mojo flies out the window? LOL well for me I clean. I got a lot done while it was gone. My craft room is completely rearranged, and cleaned and flowy now,  my daughter came in and said "WOW there is a lot of room in here now". Is that bad? While I was at work on my lunch one day I started sketching my room and rearranging things on paper and liked how it looked. So I tried it that way. I even have room for a guest chair now :) 

Well here is my card that I made for my aunt. She wanted some special thank you cards. I made 10 each with a little variation. This is a flip it card. I love them because they are one layer. I used some stamps from Craft lounge I used Versafine ink in onyx black 

I colored one flower with some distress inks (mustard seed, ripe persimmon, and spiced marmalade)

I stamped the little bee in the same ink it's from Stamping up and used a wink of stella on the wings and the flower petals

The sentiment on the inside is from Simon says stamp the January card kit of 2015 hand lettered winter wishes. 

I want to link up to AAA Cards there is a hole in my card there is a hole in my card, it is just square :)

I also want to link up to One layer simplicity challenge blossom  my card is one layer it just has some folds in it to make it flip :)

I want to also link up to CAS * OLOGY SHAPE CHALLENGE my card does have a shape it can be different shapes depending on how you pull it it can be a square or a rectangle :)

Sorry it's been so long since my last post. A lot went on.. trips to the Urgent care then sent to emergency room. hubby leaving out of town and you know when he leaves everything goes wrong LOL like the car and the water heater and well you know "murphy" . So I told murphy he needs to go on vacation. Then I prayed.... why didn't I do that in the first place. LOL Thank you GOD for meeting all my needs and then some, and locking murphy up for a while. 

Hope you enJOYed


  1. Love your interpretation of the "hole" and the card design and colors are fabby too.

  2. Striking card LesLee. Love the little pop of yellow against the mostly monochrome card. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards.

  3. Oh my, my! How clever is that? I love the bright splash of yellow.

  4. This is a fantastically clever card, and your square hole is perfect for that loopy sketchy bloom! LOVE how you have coloured that one special flower. Thanks so much for joining us at CASology this week! I had to laugh about what happens to your mojo when asked to make things for others. Same thing happens to me! The pressure to make it perfect can be paralysing!! LOL!!
