Hi, my name is Carmen. Welcome to Beyond The Fringe!

I love sewing, crocheting, paper crafts, drawing, doodling and more. I also like to create digital stamps and sometimes offer vintage graphics, many for free. I am a mom and a grandmother of 8 adorable grandkids whom I love to make things for.

Honey Bee Digital Stamp / Grilled Grandma

Hi there,

First of all I have some news today! 

A while ago I received an email telling me I'd been nominated to be a Grilled Grandma! I thought it would be fun, so I answered a bunch of questions and submitted them. This morning Lisa put up my guest post as a 'Grilled Grandma" on her blog "Grandma's Briefs."  Aside from the Grilled Grandma posts, Grandma's Briefs has lots of interesting information and of course, some photos and stories of her grandkids as well. Do take a moment and look around!

If you'd like to see my guest post, click on the "I'm a Grilled Grandma" badge in my side bar or click HERE. What grandmother doesn't enjoy showing off her grandkids and talking about them? I hope you'll check it out and let me know you've stopped by in the comment section under my guest post!

Aaaaannnd...I made up some honey bees in a Prim tree for you. 

Here's a few that got away....

Some extra hives...

Stamps are available in my Etsy Shop!

UPDATE:

These images were used on a cute little card  made by Miranda at Scrappy Doo Where Are You?  I'm always enthralled when people use my digi's, and I think she did a wonderful job of them on this card, don't you think? Miranada has used other images of mine as well. I always love her work! Be sure and check out her blog at the link above!

Blessings,
Carmen

  5. Thank you for the bees. I like the idea of connecting the three images - the tree, the bees leaving the tree to go to the hives. Hugs, Sue

    1. Hi! A few others have had that problem with other digi's. I'm not sure why, because they're showing up okay for other people, but let me know which ones and I'd be happy to email them to you.
