Bee Happy!

Hello lovely people,

Well, I've only worked 2 days this week (yesterday and today) and I'm ready for the weekend already, but before we get to that, I have a Dies to Die For DT card for you and I've been making punny cards again :-)

These sweet little bees were the only thing I splashed out on from the latest MFT release...I know, that's un-bee-lievable!

Now, I will just point out that pretty much every cartoon bee EVER has a yellow face...but real bees have black faces, so I tried both and decided that I liked the black better...well, as close as I could get to black whilst still being able to see his eyes!

I have a straight stitch line die which I have never used but suddenly realised how useful it could be to add the horizontal stitch lines on the yellow DP here.  I cut those first, then cut the strip with the large rectangle die to get the vertical edge stitching.  One tip have to be careful that you don't get the stitches in the corner lined up such that they cut out a tiny square from your panel!

I think you can just see in the photo that I heat embossed the trail and the bee is popped up on a foam pad.

If I've tempted you with any of the lovely supplies I've used then you can go straight to the individual products via the links at the end of my post or just pop over to Dies to Die For and have a little browse around!

I hope you have a bee-yoo-tiful day!
