My idea for today’s project stems from the popularity of bees as a cute way to decorate for a special event – a shower, a birthday party, a retirement soiree, etc.  Today I designed two projects - one a table favor and the other a gift tag:

Table Decor (or double-sided stand-up card)

*Digi Image from Alice Smith (see yesterday's card too)
*Bee stamps and sentiment from my stash
*Gel pen for highlighting
*Cutter Bee scissors zipping along for a lot of fussy cutting on image printed 2x and adhered to strong Kraft cardstock so she doesn't fall down on the job or buzzzzz off the table

Tag (or bookmark or place setting card)
*Jaded Blossom die set and yellow/orange/whisper white SU cardstock
*Bee stamp and sentiment from CTMH
*LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon ONLINE STORE HERE
*Gel pens for coloring and accent

Here's a second bee quote that I like - maybe you will too:
“Bees do have a smell, you know, and if they don't they should, for their feet are dusted with spices from a million flowers.” 
― Ray Bradbury, Dandelion Wine

Here's the crafties from the beehive:

Remember, no matter how you piece your paper and rumple your ribbon, have fun with it...........cyberbuzzing.........Mama LoveBug

The next bee in the hive is HAIDEE
