I used another vintage Stampin' Up set here!! Betsy The Beekeeper. I'm not sure the year... probably about 1997. I feel kinda guilty now for buying new stamps, because I have so many like this one, that have been untouched for probably over 10 years! It was really fun playing with this one today!!

I'm glad you dusted Betsy off. She has been one of my favorite images for a long time. I love all the bees that your brought to the teaparty in MS. Look at all the little flowers that you brought too. That ought to keep the bees too busy to fight over who gets to be the queen of the new hive for Uncle Beeford. I like how you stamped on that ribbon.

Wow - this stamp is awesome. I love the details on it and the sentiment is precious. I know what you mean about that guilt when you buy a new one - all those old stamps just gathering dust....
22 bees is a lot - that surely will help out Beeford. Betsy may be able to help him since she seems so experienced with hives/bees and all. Great job and TFS.

Too cute, Kris! Love this wonderful image and all the bees! Terrific layout! You win the prize so far for bringing the most bees! I'm embarassed to have brought only one, but he's a giant! And very flamboyant, too! He might have a thing for Betsy!

Hi Kris! OMG! Before I read your comment, I counted 21 but am happy to take your word at 22 because more is better! I remember this sweet little image! Its perfect for this challenge! Betsy is looking good sporting all of your little bees. I wonder if old Uncle Beeford Bumble will take a liking to Betsy!!! She does look like she knows her way around the beehive!
Its getting a little wild here but the bees seem to be settling in.....Old Beeford just might be back in business! I love your card!
