Would this be too mean? Or just mean enough?

That's Mike's comment when I ask, "Does my hair look too goofy today?"  He always says, "No, it's just goofy enough."  I've learned not to ask, "Do I look too fat in this?"  When we've had a particularly rough rehearsal, our Oratorio Society conductor will say (usually with a pained look), "That wasn't too bad…." and I want to say, "Nope.  Just bad enough."  But, anyway –

I thought about giving this card to my foster brother.  He was a bit accident prone a few years ago.  He fell out of a tree.  He tried to blow himself up.  And he tried to raise bees.  A few months into the bee season and several trips to the emergency room later, he found out he's allergic to bees.  So I thought I'd give him this to help remind him of those happy times.

I got the idea for this from a Diana Gibbs "treat bag." I loved the idea of the bees and the hive, so decided to make a Top Note card with it.  Aren't they just so cute??  You can see better in the big image that their little wings have glitter on them. 

I grabbed the wrong DSP again, though.  This is last catalog's Prints, not Fall/Winter Patterns.  Ah, well.  Here are the rest of the supplies:

Stamp Set:  Just Buzzin' By
Ink:  Jet Black StazOn; Stampin' Write Markers
Paper:  More Mustard card stock & DSP, Watercolor paper
Accessories:  Big Shot, Top Note Die, Stampin' Dimensionals, Blender Pen, Aqua Painter, 2-way glue pen, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, narrow black grosgrain ribbon, stampin' sponges

I think Paul is over his accident phase.  The highlight of their family Christmas newsletter a few years ago was, "We haven't had to rush to the emergency room in over a year." 

There's something wintry coming down outside, but since we're all home and warm – hey, let it snow.  Or whatever it's doing out there.  I think it's freezing drizzle right now.  It's just fun watching our 170 pound dog when he first sees the strange stuff on the ground.  His new inside toy is Mike's 2 pound medicine ball.  He thinks it's something to play with, and it's just hilarious to watch him pounce on it and chase it around.  He even managed to pick it up with his teeth the other day. Most surprising is that Mike and the boys let him do this and even laugh and encourage him.  (But I've noticed they haven't been using the ball….)
