Hello everyone..

I have another slimline card to share today using another one of my background papers I made..

My polkadot stamped background, the stamp  is a Rubbadubbadoo stamp, had it for years..

A close up of my lovely Bee, isn't he beautiful, he is a stamp from Pink Ink Designs, has matching dies, so you stamp the whole picture, stamp it again, cut out the bee's and add them onto your project for 3D effect..

So here it is stamped with black Archival ink and I just cut out the one Bee and decorated him up. with Nuvo glossy yellow drops, Nuvo glitter drops in green and some simple yellow colouring..

You can see the stamp here in the background..

I also added  a honeycomb using a Honeycomb stencil with Finnabair Snowflake paste..matted onto black cardstock and called it done..

And lastly stamped and embossed a gold sentiment..

So there we go, thank you so much for stopping by, I was without internet yesterday for far too long and became distressed so called my PC man, Carl, he came down a fluffed around for awhile and told me to take Holly's green plastic apples off her, she had jammed one under the internet power plug and it had been dislodged, not that you could see it, but he had crawled under the table and there it was..

I have not taken her green apples away as it is the only things she plays with like a real cat, instead I blocked access to the power box..

Beautiful background Chrissy and I love the card.
Bet you were really miffed without internet, what did we do before I wonder, it drives me nuts if it goes down, as for sweet Holly what can you say, haha, my granddughters cat Luna, calls round here all the time and I have to block access all over the place, even behind the fridge, cats are so playful...enjoy your day.xx
