Yes, I've discovered another set that has all sorts of tricks up its sleeve! Stampin' Up's Bug Me, designed to make a variety of cute bugs, has served me very well in the flower, leaf, hearts department and I've already worked out several other things I could make from it too! Don't you just love versatile stamps?! Come and see the card I've made today:
There are several overlapping elements to this card: the tag, cut from my Two Tags die, run through the Big Shot with the Honeycomb embossing folder, and embellished with a button and twine...
... the flower - stamped with wings, fussy cut and given a stem drawn with a ruler and leaves stamped with more wings...
... and finally the bee - stamped using my stamp-a-majig to get everything in the right place and fussy cut. In fact, there was a lot of fussy cutting involved because the sun was shining and I needed an excuse to sit in the garden! So pleased to have been able to use this fabulous sketch (right) from Retro Sketches for my card - they always have brilliant sketches over there and I never seem to get to them in time!

It's been so beautiful and sunny for the past couple of days that it seems churlish of me to mind the slight nip in the air. I took a small comfy chair outside to do my fussy cutting in a sun trap and, as usual, I only had to stand up for a few minutes and this happened:
If you zoom in close you'll see that her ears are twitching. I am saying: "Tuppence, I think you'll find that I was sitting there first!" loudly and clearly. She is saying: "La, la, la I can't hear you!"
