Bee 90 today

Afternoon all, thanks for popping in 
and hope you are having a good day.

I have made this card for Bob the Bee 

He is one of our neighbours who is 90 and he keeps, yes bees 
hence the name Bob the Bee. 

I started with a blank embossed card, mounted a sheet of paper with bees onto the 

Then using my new stamp from the USA, stamped bees onto a scrap of card
die cut them out, added a hint of orange/ yellow to the bee, and used 
glossy accents to give the bees some texture and height and to make them shinny

Added yellow around the die cut bees.

Used yellow distress ink to brush over the embossed card. 

Added the topper bees, sentiment and die cut shinny mirri card numbers

I would like to enter it for the following - I am sure spring is in the air with all these bees 
flying around and I am sure Bob the Bee will love it. 


Thanks everyone for your kind words yesterday with my 
roller coaster of "problems".

Well just as an up date

I have just had a phone call and got an appointment for the hospital 
on Tuesday... maybe just maybe I should have gone to the Drs 
before I did... too late now, what will be will be.

Think its time for a cuppa and some fresh air....

the sun is shinning, lambs are jumping and the birds are nesting
so life goes on....

Thanks for popping by and hope to see you
