Jingle Belles TEXT ME doodley-doo holiday & blog candy

Happy Saturday! I've been away in FL with my dh & our girls visiting my grandmother, aunt & uncle. We enjoyed a really nice visit. We rode the overnight auto train to FL, which was a new experience for all of us. I stayed in FL a few extra days for the first annual HoneyBee retreat in Orlando, FL. It was great fun getting to know my fellow DT sisters even better...check out Betty Bee's Buzz to see pics of us and some of our projects!

I went thru a little Jingle Belles & blog withdrawal :) There was no free wi-fi on our train, and it was sketchy at best in the hotel. As a result I missed out on last week's Jingle Belles challenge, but today I tried this week's challenge, TEXT ME. I used SEI's doodley-doo holiday papers. I feel a bit rusty at card making after being gone so long from my craft room. I cut the curvy mats on my cricut from two different double-sided papers, so I may try to make another card using the reverse sides.

I did get to make some fun projects with my fellow HoneyBees, and I will share one on Wednesday with you. The others are already posted at the hive. Friendly reminder:
currently at Betty Bee's Buzz:
***Don't forget to leave us comments, posts and links to be eligible for our blog candy give away. All entries for the month of Feb. will be included, and the winner will be announced on March 2nd.

There are a couple of extra goodies out there, so check out the Wednesday challenges! This week our challenge is to enter any project featuring a BEE. One in every five will win a special gift that was given to the HoneyBees at the swarm!

Oh, my word. A word made out of paper with words on it. BRILLIANT!

I've never taken the train to FL, but I think it might be fun to try some time. I could drive to my destination from Orlando. Did you guys get a sleeper car?
