 Hello everyone,

I have a huge post today and so very happy that my Hero Arts dies finally arrived, I have been looking for these ever since their release and they have been out of stock everywhere, then one day I spotted them over at and ordered them, they came, I played..

What great fun die sets, I was in my glory playing with them..

Don't the bees look so simple to colour with a hint off blue on their wings..

I die cut every die out in white card stock..

Then this top I cut out again in Gingham paper and embossed both layers together..made it all a bit more stable as the die was cutting through the thin paper..

I love this Honey pot and decided for this card to use it as a vase..

I went crazy over the the Bee's...

And the daisies, they are beautiful..

Went die cut crazy over all of them really..
Everything coloured with my markers..

I did an Ombre effect on the word "Honey" 

Made a red gingham top too...

My first card with the " vase " on spotted papers from my stash...

Along with the Bee's collecting their  pollen from the daisies..

I added on this one , my second card, the honey comb die cut in gold and a Computer sentiment " Bee My" 

Then Honey..added a bit of twine around the neck of the vases..

And lastly made one using my favorite MFT black and white stripe papers with the red top..

and the wooden Honey Dipper  to get the honey out..
a few daisies and Bee's..

I had such a great day on this day..

Thank you so much for stopping by, I'll see you Monday..

Chrissy, no WONDER you were hot on the trail to have these sets! And your coloring, as always, is GORGEOUSLY done. I always marvel at the beauty you create in your cards. The recipients must feel extra special at receiving something so lovely. The placement and dimension of your bees, the floral layering, the die cutting on top of the honey "hive", the cute gingham checks, the fun poke-a-dots - all made for HONEY SWEET masterpieces. Thanks for showing each step. huggers, de
