Lordy bees...

Hello, hello!

Back before Halloween I had printed off this little Hallobean digi so that I could use her witchy hat on another stamp. But even after I had cut away the hat she was too cute for me to just toss in the trash. So I've hung on to her, waiting for inspiration to strike on how I might use this 'lobotomized' lass on a card. Finally I was going through images yesterday and when I came across Hallobean again I thought that I could use my light box to draw in the top of her head and by adding a May Day crown of flowers it would hide the seam between the original stamp and my new addition to her look... so that's exactly what I did. I also cut away the long trailing parts of her scarf to lighten up her ensemble into a more spring inspired look. Now this Bean is ready to do some May Day mischief, leaving bouquets of flowers at all of her neighbor's doors. ;)
Once again I found myself reaching for these Garden Party papers by Pebbles. They've been quite the favorite of mine this spring. I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've used the bee paper at least. And how could I not use that sentiment stamp with all those bees buzzing in the background... it was too perfect of a pairing, LOL!

Anywho, I hope you are enjoying a lovely week so far.
