Don't worry, BEE happy!

I have been spending hurricane time in my craft room--cleaning, organizing, and a little crafting.  Not that we are really affected by the hurricane--just gloomy weather at my house and some fierce shaking of the trees every once in a while.  

So this little card I put together with the inspiration of Lindsay Weirich, who you know I love.  Here is her original at her youtube channel:

I used my Cricut Explore (of course!) to cut out my hexagons.  So super easy!  Here is my finished card front:

And of course I have some boo-boos, like using the wrong side of the embossing folder, for starters.  But it looks ok I think.  Also, if the card is sitting up, like it is in the picture, all my stamping of the far right window is obscured by all my shaker elements.

I had so much fun putting this together!  And I will add sentiments when I get the stamp set from Rubber Stamp Tapestry, which should be arriving tomorrow, should we have mail service.  And I think this card is mailable, because I used only one layer of foam tape.

And as Lindsay always urges us to "use what we have".  I used an older beehive stamp by Stampourri and assorted RST peg stamps.  Luckily I found a bee!

BTW, if you are interested in the Cricut Explore file, just message me in the comments and I will be happy to share.  Sorry, but it doesn't do the embossing--you have to have a folder for that.  I think I used one for Cuttlebug by ProvoCraft.
