Bee Well

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well and Spring has finally arrived where you live. It warmed up considerably here since last week and I was surprised to see a couple of bees flying around my deck yesterday. Trouble is, I have a sneaking suspicion they aren't bumblebees...they were enormous and from past experience, I know they drill big holes in wood! They have even drilled them in the treated wood rails on our deck! I don't think hubby could have drilled a more perfect hole w/ his drill. 

So today I'm using a few brand new, soon to be released images and a couple of older ones. They all work together perfectly. After stamping the beehive, bee & trail, I colored them with Copics and die cut. I left the die in place and sponged a little yellow ink around the inside edges. The little honeycomb image was stamped across my two bg strips and the green bg was embossed w/ a honeycomb folder. I added a greeting and 2 little black enamel dots. Pretty easy! The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
