Bee mine

Hello, hello!

Well, it is grey and gloomy here but as long as we don't get any snow I can handle it. Besides, I can always just create my own little bit of sunshine to lift the spirits with a bright and cheery card. ;)

I figured that since I used the Pure Innocence Ladybug for a Valentine last week, I had to pull out Honey Bee and do the same with her this week. I did alter her a bit by wiping away the bucket in her hand and replacing it with a large heart that I drew in. Even with that change she was still quick to color up... love that about the PI images.. and I lucked into finding these kinda odd colored Valentine's papers in my stash that worked perfectly with her little bee costume. It's funny how that happens... I get one of those coordinating paper stacks and nine times out of ten it is the least likely of papers that get pulled for a project first while my obvious initial faves sit and wait. :)

Alrighty... I've got to go do the ol' hair and make-up thing... ttyl!
