Happy Friday, peeps! Phew, what a long week this was!  I am happy to see the end of it and meet with my club girls tonight!  When I saw the Play Date Café challenge this week, I knew immediately what to submit!  Here’s the challenge:

I actually made this last month but never posted it.  My sister has bee hives and was giving a gift of honey to friends for their anniversary.  Since I love bees too (but not to the extent of having hives!!!!), I had plenty of bee-themed stamps and happily made her a sweet little tag for her honey:

I used a plethora of images here; the main beehive is from an old SU stamp set called Garden Pleasures; the bee is from Nature Walk; the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes; the honey comb is from MFT and the frame is from Waltzingmouse.  I sponged the edges and shabbied up some Daffodil Delight ribbon to give it a more vintage look:

I loved it so much, I hated to give it away, so maybe I’ll make another!  If you have any questions about specifics on the project, just shoot me an email!  Remember, if you leave a question in the comment box, I can’t always access your email to answer you personally!   Thanks for visiting today!

  2. Love that tag! I hope your sister shares the honey with you too! Fresh honey is the best!

    Does shabby-ing up the ribbon only work with the seam binding?

  3. This tag is absolutely gorgeous! I love the honey comb background. This is a beautiful frame too. I can see why you hated to give this away.

  4. Hi dear, what a beautiful little tag. I am in love. And that is so cool and sweet, that your sister is giving a home to those bees and in return they bless her with honey. They are such a gift. I am on a hunt now to find that beehive stamp set. What a beauty! You did so well with this challenge .. I might play along as well. Hard to resist a bee theme :)

    Inky hugs, Pauline
