Honey Bee!

Hello Everyone, I hope you are well and enjoying your weekend. 
Well it had to come....rain!!!, and welcome it is too. No sign of the thunder and lightening though, but it might have been through the night. It is much cooler, but a bit muggy.  How are you fairing where you are??

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on my last card, I do appreciate it and the time you take to visit me.

I have another little lollypop stick plaque today;
I've Used Oxide Inks and stamps from the Chocolate Baroque Honey Bee stamp set, I've added a bit of sparkle and some sequins. I found some lovely twine that had leaves in it, from The Works, but it's not showing in the photo.
I gave this to Dale's daughter Amanda when we were down visiting a couple of weeks ago and she loved it, I'm pleased to say.

Short and sweet from me today, have a good weekend and see you all soon,

This is lovely Kate, I am eager to make one myself, just need to get the icecream sticks from the craft store, el cheapo ones. Lovely colours here too, touch of sparkle and sequins. Beautiful stamp.
Down Under here it is dry too, even in our 'winter', no rain and sure need it...the flowers are pretty sad. Have a lovely weekend.xx

Hi Kate some great cards you have posted over the last couple weeks. Just back from our holiday in Cyprus had a wonderful relaxing time. I know we need the rain but I hope the sun comes back soon. Xx

I intended to have a go at this after I saw your last one Kate, such a lovely idea and I love the design on this, bees are dear to my heart.
It's a lot cooler here today, we had an almighty storm which certainly cleared the air, I enjoy a good storm and they are so rare
Hope you had a good weekend

No wonder Amanda loved it.
