Bee Happy

Today I've used one of my oldest unmounted stamps - when I first started stamping, I bought a few grab bags of unmounted stamps, mostly from the USA, and this was in one of them so must be 20-25 years old. 


I stamped, coloured and glittered the image then cut it out. The background is a selection of shades of yellow, orange and brown card scraps, all cut with hexagon nesting dies and arranged to give a recessed effect. It looks as if there should be another layer between the darkest yellow and the orange, doesn't it? Yet I definitely used the whole set and haven't lost a die! 

I am sharing this with

How lovely! Bees are some of my favourite creatures. I was watching one buzzing away in my early flowering clematis this morning, Jo x
