Good morning!  I was invited to be a Guest Designer for Hambo Stamps, and had so much fun making this creation for today!

Let me be clear; I don't care much for REAL bees and their li'l stingers!  But, stampy bees are A-OK!  LOL!  And, I do love me some honey–on my cornbread, in my tea, by the spoon . . . altho, um, I guess we're not s'posed to eat it that way.


There are some lovely open spaces on this image that were fun to color and shade with Copics, and I couldn't resist popping up the hive for a 3D effect., and then sugaring it up with some Prisma Glitter.

It turned out so bright and cheerful, don't you think?!

Special thanks to Libby, and Monica, owner of Hambo, for inviting me!
