Bee Happy ...

The hum of bees is the voice of the garden. ~Elizabeth Lawrence

Good morning friends and followers!
Yesterday a new Anything Goes challenges started at Through the Craft Room Door.
This week, our sponsor in Me ... With a one year subscription to TTCRD magazine for the winner!

This just the cutest set of stamps from Close to My Heart. I actually won these and while not something I would normally buy I do love playing with them. The big bee is actually from a very old set from The Angel Company and works wonderfully with the set.

The images are colored with Copics and then fussy cut. Aleen's Paper Glaze has been added to the hearts and the bee's wings. I cut out the three hexagons from a scrap piece of cardstock using the hexagon die and colored them with copics as well.

Everything is attached to the card base with foam dots.

Inside, I have stamped the sentiment "Just Bee-Cause" from The Angel Company that came with the Big Bee image.

Card size is 4.25 x 5.50
