U Bee kind...u bee smart...u bee the bee's knees!


Okay, I just purchased a photo studio box and I'm still learning how the lights work.  I think I am going to take a photography class at work.  So bear with me please as I figure this all out. ~thanks

Just popping in to show you what has been buzzing around my craft table.  I have to say that I am terrified of bees.  I can't stand to hear them buzzing and really don't like it when they take a bite out of me. teeheehee  However, with that said, Mo Manning created a bee that is so adorable, I had to have her.  Mo, originally created a straight haired version of Baby Fairy Bee and I asked (really nicely) if she would make a curly haired version as well.  She did!!  She so rocks!

Anyways, I fell so in love with this little cutie that I had to make an extra special card for her to hang out on.  Sooooo...without further's my Bee's Knees card.

Bee's Knees
Okay, I designed this card using my Cameo machine.  Immediately when I saw the original Baby Fairy Bee, I knew what I wanted to do and when Mo made this cutie, my vision came to life. lol  After assembling my bee-hive card, I added some grass and the sentiment which is from Paulette at Create with TLC.  If you are ever trying to find the write words to put on a card, page layout, whatever, I guarantee that Paulette will have it or will create it for you.  She rocks too!!  I colored this cutie with Copic markers.  I added Stickles to hr wings and some white gel pen to her cheeks and flower.  I truly love how this card turned out.  I will definitely be making this card again, so that I can play with this image over and over agian. *smile*
