Hello There Friends
And a special Helloooo to Debra and welcome to my little blog. Thank you for following me.
Sorry I have been absent, but things have been a little hectic in the Hettie household of late. Mum is still in hospital. Unfortunately during her stay some
nasty kind so and so sat between Mum and the next patient, whilst visiting the next patient with a bad case of Flu and has passed it on to Mum, who like me is susceptible to these kinda things and now has a chest infection on top of the kidney infection she went in with. As you may imagine, this has upset her just a tiny bit! NOT! This also means that I am not able to go visit now in case I pick anything up. Honestly some people ey!!
On top of that I have been visiting our local hospital too, but I shall maybe tell you about that another time!
Right then. On to today's post.
As you will know from previous posts recently, we have had a family Wedding recently whereby my Nephew got married. Well, as Bee Keeper of the family we had to give some Honey to the Honeymooners. However, I could not find a honey jar locally that I liked so I got to do my own jar instead.
I took a standard Kilner jar and decorated it. Why not? The papers used are the MME The Sweetest Thing range in 6x6". Dies used are Memory Box which I bought at Ally Pally. Let me just tell you, those Bees are little
buggers blighters to make!!!
Any excuse to get the alcohol inks out to make a tag for the jar using memory glass and the stamps that came with the papers. Well, it would have been rude not to buy them too (and the 12x12" papers of course!)
Here is the top of the jar, which I used some Spellbinders dies.
Don't you just love this ribbon? My Buddy brought that back from USA for me, though I have since found a source fairly locally.
I raided the Snippets Box for some white pieces of cardstock for the Bee wings and also raided my ribbon and fibre basket so I shall take this to the Playground to share around. Knowing my Nephew the honey is all gone by now. I know Miss is a little partial to our Honey too so I may be forgiven for missing class this week!!
Can you just say a prayer for our bees right now? They are not having a good time of late and what with the recent weather they are really struggling.
I hope you are having a good weekend so far. I understand the weather in the UK is great for scrapbooking/quilting/sewing/card making so off you go!
