Touches of Texture ~August 2016 1.2
I don't know how I had missed that there was a bee in this set until I sat down to create a card with it. It is even a realistic looking bee. As many who know me, I don't do "cutesy' very well. This set has so many stamps to use. I could create with this set all day. I always love an artistic feeling set.
