Just {Bee}cause

Wouldn't it be wonderful if this were all that was on your "Honey Do List"? LOL! A while back, I was lucky enough to win Cornish Heritage Farms' Sweet Bee set from Julia Stainton's blog (thanks, Julia!). I've been wanting to make a card with this "Honey Do List" stamp for a while now, just didn't get around to it. Well, sometimes procrastination pays off! I was in Michael's the other day and spied this great paper line from Deja Views that has bees, honeycombs, dandelions... all perfect to go with this stamp set. I think this would be a great card for the dad of the house.. on his birthday, father's day, to kick off a vacation... just bee-cause.

I used cardstock from an American Traditional Designs paper pad (the colors matched the Deja Views papers perfectly - go figure). The Deja Views background paper has flourishes and a honeycomb pattern (don't know if you can quite see it), and I also used one with a stripe of little bees going across it. I stamped the bee image from Sweet Bee multiple times, then punched them out using Creative Memories' Hexagon punch. I colored all the images with Copics. The ribbon is from Stampin' Up! in Blue Bayou, which is retired :(. All you SU! demonstrators out there - please please please lobby to bring back Blue Bayou, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, and Riding Hood Red. I'm beggin' :). For now, I'll just have to hoard some, I guess LOL!

Thanks for looking and have a great day - just {bee}cause!
