Bee Happy

A dear friend sent me some stencils.

I just had to have a play with one of them.

I sponged some Daffodil Delight over some of the stencil
to make the honeycomb.
(Maybe I should have used So Saffron.  It's pretty bright!)

The bee was stamped on vellum with Jet Black StazOn
and cut with the coordinating die.
(Did you notice that this set is being discontinued?) :-(
I colored the bee with markers.

Another entry for
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Edited to Add
Pixies Snippet Playground is open now.
So I'm taking my happy and bee snippets over.

I'm so glad you came to visit.
