Bee-autiful Day!

Hello, Friends!  Hope you're having a nice week!  Mine has been ok, although my daughter's been sick…  She's feeling better today but still not out of the woods.  It's been kind of up and down for her so I'm glad to see she's feeling better today.  : ) 

Anyways, in between runny nose and pink eye, I wanted to do a quick post for Moxie Fab's Hooked on Hexagons Challenge.  Hexagons are definitely in trend and I could not help but get hooked!  I had the thought of an hexagon-shaped card…   Since I do not have a die in hexagon shape I created a template.  Here's the card:

I also thought since honey-combs are in hexagon shape it would be cute to add a bee and the sentiment 'Have a bee-autiful day!'  I do not have a stamp with that sentiment so I printed it on the computer.  

I used the Sizzix 'Bee Happy' Sizzlits die for the bee.  Instead of cutting the bee on white and coloring it, I decided to cut it twice (in yellow and black).  Using the yellow bee as my 'base' I cut the black one out and kind of paper pieced parts of it on the yellow bee.  That way I got the same yellow on the bee as the card stock on the card.

Well, Mommy duty calls so that's my card for today!  Hope you enjoyed the visit!

Have a bee-autiful day!
