Don't Be a Blue Beary

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend, and for those celebrating the 4th, I hope it was an extra special holiday weekend!  Well, now it's Monday and the start of a busy week for us.  We have company arriving Friday and my craft room, AKA guestroom, looks like a tornado hit it.  Yikes!  The bed is covered in paper, images, boxes, etc., etc., etc.  And my desktop...well...let's just say very few Copics are at present tucked away in their drawer, lol.  Let the cleaning commence!  Lol, yeah right.  Per usual, I'll be scrambling on Thursday night to shove stuff in baskets and cubbies, and begging dear hubby to vacuum for me since I ran out of time.  Anyone else out there find crafting so much more enjoyable than cleaning, and procrastinating until the last second? (Yes, rhetorical question, lol)

So that's enough about my character flaws for one post.  On to today's card!  As you know if you've been reading my blog, my stepfather passed away recently.  Mom is doing her best to cope with her loss, and naturally some days are better than others.  When I came across this image from Scrap Happy Paper Crafter entitled Don't Be a Blue Beary, it made me giggle, and I knew I had to make a "Have a Happy Day!" card for my mother.

P.S.  Yes, the card did make my mother smile!


  1. Oh so cute card for your mum, et it's super, she have had a smile, you're so great with her !

    Oh you what ? my husband will do some cleaning tomorrow, we have a friend who comes to the house and I have not had time to do lol! Ah, what would we do without our adorable husbands ! ;-)
    Have a nice week !

  2. Too cute Tress. Love all the blue. Great job!

  3. Very cute! Lovely thought too as we all need a smile :)
    I use my guest room as my craft room so I completely understand!! The bed is just a large storage area!

  4. I've become an awful housekeeper once I took up copics and crafting! Love the blues you've used and the paper is fantastic.


  5. Oh I'm so sorry to hear of your Dad's passing Tress... I did not know... Sending big Cyber hugs & prayers to you and your family! Your card is so Sweet I know it's sure to bring a smile to your Mom's face.. I know she's going thru a lot and it's not easy...

    Hope ou enjoy your company & I know exactly how it goes, the scramble to clean up the craft/spare room, lol ;-)

    Big hugs
