Happy Bee-Day


I made this card for a friend who likes to display some of my cards on a shelf unit in her kitchen so I didn't add a sentiment as I preferred it without. It would make a lovely framed picture too.

I bought the cross stitch kit from Hobbycraft during the last lockdown. I must say apart from the bee which was a bit tricky the hive was actually rather boring to sew but I am pleased with the finished stitching.

The paper and frame are from the Nitwits Bee-lightful digi collection. I simply added some paper flowers to finish.
