Elisabeth Bell - Honey Bee

Good morning my lovelies how are you all? I'm so sorry I've not been round I did start on visiting 2 nights ago but then my youngest Jake ended up ill & we had to phone emergency ambulance & get him rushed to hospital. He is fine & back home thankfully now, back to his normal hip hop self lol. I was then at the hospital yesterday afternoon for a test & having sedation so didnt feel up to coming on my lappy last night.

Anyway I did manage get a card made, altho only remembered take photo's at midnight last night lol. I have used one of my new stamps that I recently got..........yes I know I will stop buying them as soon as people stop making yummy ones.........its not my fault!! ;0)
This is one of the new Whimsy stamps by Elisabeth Bell & OMW these are so darn sweet!!! I sooooooooooooooo love Elisabeth Bell & really need to stop neglecting my stamps!!
I've used a Tim Holtz 'Distressed Doily' die & splashed white gesso on it & inked the edges.
Flowers have all had a visit from my Stardust Stickles & I added 'Elegant Scroll' die.
The image is one of the new Cottage Cuties & this one is 'Honeybee' isn't she so pretty.
I did of course colour her with copics & added Stardust Stickles to her flowers & bobbles on her hairband. Also added dots using my Pearl Pen ;0)
I went for pastel colours for a change but I'm thinking I should have done her hair light really...
Have you seen the totally OTT gorgeous papers I've used? These are the new Prima 'Tea-Thyme' wow they are so so unbelieveably pretty!!!!!!!! 
As always I have decorated inside & also added 'Picket Fence'.....would you believe I went to this shop to get my glue & things fell...........I tell ya fell into my basket, I wonder if there is a problem with my internet???? The same thing happened the other day at My Crafty Heart as well, mmmm puzzling!!

Ok all A4 card used is from my stash, also the ribbon, lace, sentiment & punch for mini butterflies also from my stash...............ingredients below for everything else......

OMG hun, so flipping lovely!! No, the hair is fine in that colour, it matches with the rustic feeling in this card, would look lost if lighter in my opinion anyway! lol.
