You're so sweet

Happy Friday everyone!
Well, I woke up at daft o'clock with a headache. 
Went back to sleep after a nocturnal visit *cough* to you know where.
Woke up again at even dafter o'clock and paid another visit. 
Think me kidneys have been having a party, 'coz I certainly haven't!
Headache still there. Managed to sleep 'till 6.30am. Woke up with a golf ball in the back of my throat!
Hacking cough to boot and I'm gettin' proper fed up of this virus now!! 

Got up brewed a cuppa and set about feeling better by making this card!

  I love that bee to BITS!
He, the sentiment and the beehive are from PKSC-16
The embossing folder is by Provocraft. It's called Cricut Cuttlebug Honeycomb.
Ignore the Cuttlebug part, it works in all machines.
(Mine's a Big Shot).
I cut some of the honeycomb out and put orange card on the inside of the card to give the effect of honey inside the cells.
I used foam pads for the hive, the sentiment and the bee.
The Hive and the Bee were coloured with Copics as per usual.
I sponged Spiced Marmalade distress ink on the sentiment, cut out with a Spellbinders Hexagon die.
BTW!! Peachy Keen are having a sale right now!
You have until Sunday night to get 20% off all new releases!!

Well. That's it from me for now.
Apart from this thick throat, I'm feeling better than I have all week, so, you never know, I might make another card yet with this embossing folder before the day is out!

Have a fabulous weekend!!!
