Honey Bees

You knew you would see them here!

Obviously I have a thing for bees. LOL! I generally cannot help myself when bee stamps come out, and this set was no exception. I just love these fat little guys. They have SO much coloring potential. While I was perusing MFT’s samples I adored the one by Sara Zoppi. You can see her card HERE on her blog. I decided to use her card as a jumping off spot. Here is my version…

Like Sara, I also colored my bees in a rainbow. Are they not the cutest? Instead of coloring the wings I filled them in with Nuvo Jewel Drops in Key Lime.

I thought it would be fun to use this sentiment, as my way of Thanking all of YOU for always stopping by!

Adding the little flowers among the bees make my card feel a bit whimsical.
