Just "bee" Cause

I have a sweet bee themed card for you today. When I think of spring and summer I always think of bees. And of course honey. We leave our screened in porch door partially open a lot so our dogs can go in the backyard to do their business. The downside to that is sometimes we get bees and butterflies and occasionally even a bird or tiny frog trapped inside trying to figure their way back out. I have been known to do rescues with a dustpan and small whisk broom. We need all those little creatures especially the bees.

After stamping up the honey jar, honey dipper, bee and floral spray from the Reverse Confetti Happy Bee Day set onto Neenah cardstock and the jar topper from patterned paper, I cut out with the matching dies, then colored with Copic Markers. I used the main die from the Hello and Thanks Label set to create a cutout from linen cardstock, then lined the opening with honeycomb patterned paper. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the panel using hawaiian shores ink, then attached the stamped images using craft foam. Twine tied at the top finished it up.
