Default Favorite bee stamp?

My name is Melissa, which is Greek for honey bee. So, it only seems logical that I have a honey bee stamp, right?

So, what are some of your favorite bee stamps?

OMG I never thought about that even though that root is also the root of the Russian word for honey, which I know. So cool!!

My fave bee is an old retired SU set called Posy and Bee - he was so bold and cute:

I've always loved the simplicity of the bee in the SU! DD Daisy set. Just bold line drawing. I havethe matching brass template and use that bee often with "Just because" and "Believe" for CAS cards.

I love Satmpin Up's "Just Buzzin By." It's retired, but I found mine on eBay. So cute! Pretty name by the way!

The little Crafty Secrets Queen Bee set has a lovely bee and the branches on there are beautiful, too! The set's here and I've attached a pic of a little lavender sachet I made with the set so you can see how nicely the elements go together!

Of course I'm a bit partial to the Hambo bees myself.

Wow! You ladies are great at scoping these out!
And what a great selection ... cute bees, silly bees, realistic bees.
The hard part will be deciding which one (or two) I want to choose!

Check my gallery---there are some holiday bee stamps from Art and Craft Rubber Stamps by Stamp N Plus Scrap N that just came out. I have samples made with the St. Pats & the Easter bee. There is also a Valentine bee & a Santa bee. These stamps are so new that they are not up on the website yet. I also have another card there with bees & a hive from the same co.

I love the bee I got in the dollar bin at Michael's many years ago by Studio G. It is just a big bee..

Ha, I'm not so fond of the more realistic looking ones. We used to have a hive in the garden, but they were not very friendly. In fact they stormed the house once when my mother hadn't used enough smoke to calm them down.
I use the one from In Full Bloom when I need a realistic one, but for cuteness and because it reminds me of a childhood book I like this one from Sideshow Stamps - MMTPT30, Honey Won't You Bee Mine by Cook22 - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers.

My favorite bee is by Penny Black:
Penny Black, Inc.
It's on the right side. Not realistic at all, just cute and adorable. I bought this set for the hedgehogs but have used the bee the most!!

My favorite dressed-as-a-bee character is Tilda by Magnolia:

I don't mind real ones as long as they mind their own business.
I learned (the hard way) that I'm deathly allergic to bee stings. I carry an Epi Pen in my purse.

A friend made me a lovely floral birthday card that had a sweet bee on it. It came from a Hero Arts set of stamps that come with matching Framelits dies. I decided I had to have the set myself but when I visited my LSS it was out of stock. I went back there on Saturday, went to check and a member of staff was just putting them out on display so I snaffled one quick!

Here's a link to the set:
