A BEE-autiful thank you card for Sandi

Hey guys!

I'm going to start with this post this week bc the flowers made me happy and making the card makes me happy and smile! I need it. I have learned my grandma has passed away. So, just wanted to talk about something cheerful and BEE-autiful!

So I know I have talked about Beth on here but not sure I have told you guys have a great friendship with her mother too! She lives not only in my town but in neighborhood too. She is amazing and we get together time to time to have lunch it usually is harder during the skool bc she works within the skool system But Sandi has retired so it should be much easier to see her... maybe lol.

But we were able to do lunch last week which was nice and we were out for like 3 1/2 hours talking and catching up... a real sign it's been to long. But she bought me flowers. I have been having a rough month with meds so I dont become diabetic, my father's health is not good. He has been in surgery multiple times over the last few months, Boyfriend stepped down from his manager position which is good bc hedoesnt need the stress but took a HUGE pay cut like 6 dollar pay cut. So just been way stressed about alot so she bought me flowers so nice of her! 

So I thought I would snail mail her a card to say thank  you! I loved the way it turned out! In High School a chick I use to hang with use to call me Lyzz-a-Bee! So it really made me happy! She didn't know that!

I got to try out the Lawn Fawn Black Licorices ink. Tam had it and I used it on the word Amazing tho that one isn't a Lawn Fawn stamp it is a Fiskars Teresa Collins stamp. other than that I used Memento Black to stamp and color things. I liked the black for the brightness I think it would be amazing for sentiments but I preferred my memento for my copic coloring still. Tho it might be amazing for other markers that are non alcohol based or even color pencils. I am just spoiled. I do have one Lawn Fawn Ink... Freshly Cut Grass (Bright Green) love it. But never used markers with it.

I used a couple of Lawn Fawn Stamp sets. Tam had the petite florals, so I used a flower out of that set to make the flowers. Which sad to say the petite florals set is retired but I am sure you can still find it online somewhere it is newly retired. They just started retiring their sets

Which totally makes me sad! I don't own them all yet!

I used the Bee from Gnome Sweet Gnome, totally one of my favorite sets! 

I used a recollections stencil I got from Michael's while in Florida with Sara in Sept 2015 to do the honey combs with some stamping up's Hello Honey ink. 

The washi tape I believe is Michael's recollections collection. It was one Tam has it was foil silver arrows on white tape. I really loved it and it worked so well on this card in the photo it doesn't look silver just kinda gray. 

I hope Sandi Likes it.

 Thank you for stopping in!
