Freshly Made Sketches: Bees

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Jen B.

Just last week, I took advantage of a Christmas in July sale at Honey Bee Stamps.  I definitely added to my Christmas stash but somehow these bees and great sayings just jumped into my cart.

It was actually that one little bee flying straight out of the card that sold me.  It's definitely fun to have a variety of cute bees (there are 7 different bees in the set) but that one little guy made me smile!  The sentiment set is very versatile - dozens and dozens of sentiments - it is amazing how many sentiments work with "bee"!  FYI - there are dies that say "bee" too in a couple of different fonts and including backers but I used just the stamps to layer them up.

I look forward to seeing what everybody comes up with for this sketch!

Sentiment: Honey Bee Stamps Bee-you-tiful Sentiments
