Bee Mine. Hot Stuff.

I played in the Virtual Stamp Night challenges at Splitcoast this past Friday (it was a mini event with the main gig coming up on March 1st and 2nd! so clear your calendar!). I made 5 or 6 cards that I’ll share this week. This one in non-traditional Valentine colors was one of my favorites!

Bee Mine from Paper Smooches was perfect for the Feelin’ a Little Punny challenge. I paper pieced the Bee and eyes, added a small ticket strip and fishtail banner dies (MFT die-namics) with My Mind’s Eye paper. Easy.

In other news, I’m still running. Had a beautiful 34 degree run this morning with my running girls. We’ve been struggling with lots of extra cold temps, odd schedules & trips and high winds the last month, so this felt normal. content. wonderful.

This morning, I peeled my gloves and ear covering and unzipped my hoodie by the start of mile three, but that’s fine.¬†People always say to dress in layers so you can peel off as needed, but last Friday (FOURTEEN degree Friday), was a different story. I wore this hoodie type thing that my husband got in his stocking, thinking I was pretty hot stuff for remembering that this hunting gadget might be good for keeping my head and neck warm while running in cold weather. Hot stuff, alright! I was way too hot, and along about mile two, I couldn’t get the thing off of my head. I’m sure it was a hysterical sight. Fourteen blistering degrees, people driving by thinking we’re nuts for being outside, me fighting with a hoodie that I can’t slide off my head – the whole time thinking I’m going to have a heat stroke. I survived, and that’s about all I can say about that.

Here’s hoping we’re past the last 14 degree mornings around here.

See you soon, hot stuff!
