Just nipping in to post a card for Moo Mania and More, whose current theme - Just One Word - ends tomorrow!

This card is made with a die cut over watercolour paper, then Oxide stencilling over a masked bee. I quite enjoyed making this simple card... the honeycomb theme is carried over to the inside, too, as inspired by Lols, who often decorates the inside of her cards to match. 

I'm also linking to Paperminutes, whose theme is Birds and Bees.

 Thank you for calling in today

I'll be back soon

Absolutely fabulous BEE card, dear Cath. You make such beautiful cards and they are definitely postage friendly, too. I really love the bee.

You left a comment about the rocking horse on today's post. Yes, I showed it before during a T Tuesday post. However, I haven't played at WOYWW for a long time and one of the things I do when I show my desk is I also show one of my over 450 rocking horses. Many WOYWW players only visit when I link to WOYWW. That's why it was a repeat for you, but not for most people who will visit today.

A fab card - I just love it but remember I love Bees. Since the bomb in Manchester I have been loyal to my city who has the bee as its emblem and I so enjoyed the "bee search" there a year or so ago. Now I have my own bee necklace and a pair of ear rings, the latter I rarely wear though.
But your bee is magnificent - I just love how you have coloured her in. That is the best coloured bee I have seen anyone do. Love the stencilling love how you carried it on inside and just adore the bee.
Hugs, Neet xx

What a bee-utiful card! (sorry I couldn't resist ...lol 😉). I love how you die cut the honeycombs and continued the design using a stencil - fabulous! Wishing you a happy Friday and weekend! Jo x

I love your cake card, funny and well coloured. I wouldn't worry about the sentiment I had exactly the same problem recently and whilst it annoyed me, nobody else took any notice! Love your flowers and bugs card too, a clever use of circle stamps, and the fun lady in the pond with the gorgeous background.
