Bee Thankful

... for my friend, Jennie! This is a thank-you card for her. The sentiment makes me think of her; whenever she calls, she always starts the conversation with "Hey, honey!" I think she does that with everybody.

This also is for the challenges at:
Paper Sundaes - Use stitching
EtsyInspired Challenge - Becky Kazana's store
Get Sketchy Follow this sketch:

 The recipe:
All DP is from Cosmo Cricket's Garden Variety collection.
Stamps are The Birds and the Bees by Kim Hughes - CHF
Nesties to cut the scallops, a Cuttlebug folder to emboss the hive's background.
I paper-pieced the bees, but Copic-colored the hive. Machine-stitched the sections.
Green grossgrain's from the stash.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Please leave a comment and come again soon!
Have a wonderful week,
