I really like bees. Well, on paper anyway - not buzzing around me. I think they are so cute. These bee images are in a new set called Happy Pansies - from Mark's Finest Papers . The set also includes images of pansies and some wonderful sentiments.

I wanted to try something different with these stamps. The sentiment is all on one stamp, so I used a marker to ink just the bee and the bee (lol) for one of the squares and the bee and the well for another. I also inked the tiny bee from that stamp and added it to the bigger bee which is a stand alone stamp. They are stamped onto the yellow cardstock with black ink and cut/embossed using Spellbinders Labels Twelve. I then mounted those onto the black squares so they would really pop. The dp looks like cells from a beehive, don't you think? It is from Chatterbox. I added the yellow gingham ribbon and a flower charm (also from MFP). The top of the card is embossed with a Cuttlebug Frills border folder.

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm with you, Karen. Bee images, etc. are fun to work with ... and I actually kept one old SU set because I didn't want to part with the bee! But IRL ... I'm a runnin'!

Happy Weekend!
