Blown away bees..

Edit: The link below is the one I've always given out for the free Becky font. Apparently it's not working correctly. I don't have any other solutions except perhaps you could go to the Creating Keepsakes homepage and try accessing it from there. If anyone finds a link, I'd be glad to post it.

Edit: Go here for Becky's free font: http://www.beckyhiggins.com/products/

Hi everyone! We had ice storms roll through and we've been without power since 8am yesterday. We're at my in laws right now taking showers and checking in. Just a quick post for today and hopefully our power will be back on soon at home.

I love Karen Lockhart's old time fan stamp, it reminds me of this vintage blue one that we had growing up. I was always scared someone was gonna lose a finger or a toe though. It oscillated and we talked into the fan to make funny sounds.
I colored the image in with Copic Sketch markers and added some fun bee stamps from My Cute Stamps.
I wanted a fun sentiment to go with my fans so I created one using the CK Becky Font. Together with the bees that look like they're being blown away, my sentiment ties in well with the theme of the card. I finished off the card with some October Afternoon patterned paper and one of my button embellishments that I had leftover from my stash.
Hope you're having an "electricity filled" weekend...I've never appreciated my hair dryer and flat iron more than today!!

Hmm.... looks like the font might not be available anymore? I've tried everything and only get an error message. Bummer!

This is adorable. I love the old fan and the cute color combos. Also, adding the buttons and ribbon just completes the look!

Your card is darling and I love the idea of creating my own sentiment on the computer. I haven't done it but I like your inspiration! I have a question...do you use 12x12 sheets of paper or do you use the smaller scale 6x6? I looked at paper at the scrapbook store the other day and the images all seemed so big. The images on the paper you use on your cards seems to be perfect scale so I just wondered. Thanks!

Woo, your back! :) I was about to go insane without my daily Mish inspiration. ;) I know it isn't fun without power. Once during hurricane season, ours was off for 19 days!! Super cute card!

FUN artwork! Hope your electric comes back on soon. At least you have a place to go & get warm.

what fun cards! I've been without electricity due to ice storms before and it's no fun. I hope you get your electricity soon!

I tried the link and when I try to download the font, it says the link is broken. I disabled the pop up blocker, but still doesn't work. Do you know if there is a trick I might be missing?

Sharon said...

I'll bet you and Eric are staying warm in spite of not having electricity, LOL!! ;)

Hi there...Love your cards you do such amazing work...got a question...I tried to find on your blog where to email you but could not find your email address so here goes.
I have been searching on every font webstie out there looking for the font you use on your blog topper. Since I dont know the name of it it's hard to find. I have scrolled through page after page looking for it....can you tell me the name of it and where you downloaded it from...please?????
Thanks so much
Tina
