Bee Happy

Hi all :-) When I saw that the Less Is More Challenge this week is asking for Hexagons, and the Sketch Saturday Sketch is using a Hexagon design for it's layout I just had to join in and combine the 2 :-)


I love this new Simon's Exclusive Full Card Hexagon die and I have been using it ALOT, the bee image from the Circle Friends Set and the 'Be' sentiment all go together perfectly I think, I die cut the 'Be' twice to have an extra 'e'  :-)

I inked up some Watercolor paper with Wild Honey Distress Ink and then smeared Distress Rock Candy Stickles all over it, I think the honeycombs look real ! :-)



Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one so I know you popped by :-)
