Just Bee-cause!

Check out my blog candy give-away for this stamp set on the NEXT post!

I couldn't post this on Father's Day because it is a sneak peak, and it was just killing me!

This is what I made for my step-dad on Father's Day, plus we gave him a bottle of Mead, which is a honey wine.

We live only a few miles from Munro Honey, and they have a fabulous store on the outskirts of Alvinston, Ontario. It is filled with prize winning Meads, gifts and HONEY!!

They had this fabulous honey candy which is made from - um - honey....so I made this little gift basket for Owen filled with honey candy - and he loves honey - so what could be better!!

I remember when I was a teenager we would save our empty honey containers and when the honey was gone we would travel up the road to Mr. Robertshaw's (I think that was his name) and fill all of our empty containers with fresh honey from his hives - oh my goodness - I would rush home and have toast and warm honey! --it was so wonderfully golden and delicious!



Enough old lady talk LOL!........onto the sneak peak!!
Just Bee-Cause has some cute little sentiments and images, so I decided to play with most of them for this project!

Check out the little honeycomb and beehive - How sweet are they! and I made sure to add lots of glitter on the bee's wings!

I made the scallops with the tall nestabilities in my Cuttlebug - which by the way - I broke the "C" plate yesterday - right in half - BAH!!



I think it had something to do with forcing it through the Cuttlebug and not supposed to do that....I dunno......
