OK - so there's only one bird, the other one stopped off for a sunshine break before making the last dash for Cody. Perfect destination for me this week as making a card for Jamie was on my to-do list - all the ones in my box are for girls.
No Winnie-the-Pooh, no rocking horse, I just went with what I had.
5 3/4" square base. Unknown 12x12 paper punched with the ticket corner punch, and little buttons added. Image is Penny Black, stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with re-inkers. The bees are from the same set, have Stickles on their wings and are popped on on foam. The bird is Art Impressions and the sentiment is Woodware -they too are up on foam tape.
I think this came into my mind because when I was little I had a mobile my dad made featuring characters from various books, and one of the elements was Winnie-the-Pooh hanging from his balloon as he tried to get honey from the tree. So after seeing the sneak peek last night, and seeing the challenge this morning I was thinking bees and honey
Congratulations to Jamie and family, and Grandma Pat and the Buckle Man.
Honeycomb icecream for a treat - shh, don't tell Bear that it has nothing whatsoever to do with real honey ;-).

Your card is so very adorable! That has to be the sweetest bear image I've ever seen - how could you not fall in love with that sweet little bear?! You colored him beautifully and he's adorable in the nestie! I love the little bees (on paper only - not IRL) and they are a sweet touch and the cute little bird. I love your card!

Darling card, Sabrina!!! Such a lovely image which you've watercolored in a beautiful, soft way! Did you have to mention honeycomb ice cream???! I'm really trying to cut down in the New Year! Hope your water situation is all back to normal - we never got ours turned off, seems we're on the same line as the Ulster Hospital, which was a blessing for us.
