Beee Thankful

Brrrrrr, it's been such a cold day today.  We'd a wee skiff of snow this morning, of course the weather men and radio presenters nearly went into meltdown with excitement LOL.  Thankfully it didn't hang about long, but I don't think my feet have warmed up all day.  Poor Greg Hahaha

This card uses some super old stash ... I'm on a mission!  My DPs were from a candy win aaaages ago and were promptly put in the 'too nice to use' stash.  We'll have no more of that nonsense!  My yellow pearls were from my unloved stash, but turned out to be perfect for this DP.  Happy Days.

I paper pieced my bee from The Alley Way Stamps.  Paper Smooches sentiment.  Die-namics dies.

Layout from Mojo Monday #320

I love your bee....looks as if he has had his fill of nectar/pollen. :-)
I like the crackled look on the green paper. Adorable card!

Poor Greg is right!! Better warn him so the shock won't be too bad.

Why do we hoard our pretties? lol...So glad that you decided to use this pretty yellow - your card is adorable! Eek! Snow? I know exactly what you mean about the media going crazy at the first flakes! Stay warm, dear friend!

Soooo cute.
Understand about the tooo pretties, have loads but downsizing means no more hoarding or at least try.
