Sweet As Honey

Monday, June 17, 2013

One of my treasures is a small, vintage children's book that is tattered and ripped.  It has outlived its usefulness, but it still has a few fun pages with interesting text.  I adore the little poem on this page.

Hundreds of bees in the purple clover,
But only one mother the wide world over.
 
 
Isn't that a sweet sentiment? I had to bring this page back to life!  So I pulled out my stamps and inks and some Crate Paper papers and...voila!  A card for my Mother.  I used the current sketch at Unscripted Sketches, but it doesn't look like it at first.  I flipped the sketch completely upside down.
 
 
Don't forget that there is still time to join in on my blog candy giveaway here.  Go enter!  It's super-easy.

  2. Michelle...this card is so cute. I love the bees!!! I also like how you've layered some ephemera behind adn in front of them. The random hexagon pattern really looks like a honeycomb...perfect for tying in with the bees. A very cute design! Thank you for the very nice comment you left on my blog today, too. It's much appreciated. <3 Candy
