Friendly Bumble Bee…

Today’s card is one of my favorites.  I like the way it folds together, I love the designer series paper and bumble bees are one of my favorite things on this earth because of the work they do (worker bees) and the fact they are not aerodynamically designed to fly…but do!

Here’s the card…

There’s that gingham!  I hope the new annual catalog has more…

Glamour close up…love that bee!

Do you like the opening?  The flower on the front holds the card closed.

    • I hadn’t thought of that Laura…but I love bees too. This paper is awesome…I’m especially fond of the gingham!…B!

  2. Billie, I love the way this card folds, too. It is a beautiful card with the bumblebee and your favorite DSP. The recipient will be thrilled to open this awesome card. I hope the bad weather coming through Savannah is over by the time your group arrives. I agree with today’s “b-ism” and have added “fairy dust” to my vocabulary!! Too funny!! Take care.

    • Thank you HJ…it is a fun fold with the flower holding it closed. We have had the weirdest weather day ever. All should be clear for us to leave in the morning. Should be a fun weekend…I’ll keep you posted on my FB page…B!
