Simple Smile at HoneyBee stamps

Happy Thursday! which means I'm over at HoneyBee Stamps sharing a simple card using the new SMILE builder set and COLOR MY WORLD
There are four NEW stamp sets, and Honey Cuts (Dies) to go with all previous sets!
Here is a SNEAK PEEK of what I have for you today.
In photo below, you can see just a hint of a Family Treasure I found while going through some linens at my Grandma Mary's, who past away in January at the good age of 94. 
That treasure my dear readers, is a rare Tatted doily from my Great Grandma Bessy:)) Mastering the art of Tatting was something I always hoped to achieve but found the elusive "flip" of the shuttle and thread was not inherited by me.

You can stop by the  HoneyBee blog to see the rest of the card and MORE of the tatting:))

  1. Sweet looking card. Oooh tatting. I never could figure out the shuttle thing either, BUT there is a method called needle tatting that is pretty easy to figure out and it gives you the same look! There are lots of videos and I got my needles from Hobby Lobby. Just a thought. :)

    1. Hello Jeanne, Yes I have done the needle tatting too and agree the tatting looks the same as shuttled:)) I'm just bummed that I could not master the rhythmic motions I always saw my Great Grandma using with that shuttle! My eyesight is not as it should be to work with the tiny threads either. As Grandma said..She Tatted her eyes out.
      Thank you for stopping by, have a blessed day!
