I have a friend who has bees on his property and I was taken into the world of millions of bees one day.  
While checking for honey, I was surprised by how grungy
the busyness inside the hives looked. 
(it’s not as pretty as what is in the jars on the supermarket shelves)
I was the helper who had to stand and hold the boards while he checked what was going on honey wise…and I needed to think “happy thoughts” while being covered in swarming bees 
– I was told that happy bees don’t bite through the suits! 
That blew my idea of being safe inside those white suits.

The bee and drips stamps I bought after that experience.
But for some reason I haven’t been able to find a stamp of honeycomb…so…I have made my own for this card!
I know it looks a little basic, but I think it is effective as part of the background for this one.
No photo of the potato stamp this time 
because I kind of squished it.

For the background I used my roller to apply the ink which give beautiful texture which came up surprisingly well with a little distress ink over the top.

Oh, and I wasn’t bitten!


I would like to enter this into the following challenges ~
