Oh, these are stunning and gorgeous cards!! Love the untraditional colours too, soo soft and feminine.
Where did you get the bird on the branch from? it's such a delicate one.
Thanks for the inspiration.
Bye from the Netherlands,

Beautiful cards! I have those Martha Stewart tags, too. Thanks for showing they can be used for a winter theme also.


i love the vintage black and white bee

Both cards are beautiful! Did you know Melissa means honeybee? Have a daughter named Melissa and she loves the meaning and uses honeybee in her signature a lot. I think I will make her birthday card this year using the honeybee.


When I saw this card in the album, I literally gasped... I love that the only real holiday elements are the snowflakes and sentiment, because the whole thing came together SO perfectly with all the non-holiday stuff! Besides, I love every little thing you make :)

I love honey bees too, and yet I am always stumped as to how to use them. I LOVE your card, and how the "B" theme is throughout. Gorgeous, friend!!


Just beautiful-as always!!

Beautiful cards! I love the sweet bees and all the fun details on the Christmas card for the FF challenge! We had sun for 2 days in Seattle and I have been enjoying playing in my garden and planting flowers in my pots! So fun! :)

Both absolutely beautiful Melissa! Nicola x


So, I was glancing at the cards and not paying attention to the paragraph below, thinking, wow..this card is so springy" (love rosie posey) and loved the touch of the snowflakes in spring (not in real life tho) anyway is a holiday card...well just goes to show it can go both ways!! More snowflakes in color bejeweled any old time!!! Thanks for the inspiration....again!!!!


Both of these cards are just precious. The bee card completely melts my heart, with the beautiful soft yellows and all the layers :) What a brilliant idea to use non-holiday bits for a winter card. So very, very sweet!

these are stunning!


I have seen the "bee happy" theme on countless cards but THIS ONE is super! Great card, showcasing the vintage bee and vine. Your holiday card is so cool! Lovely in non-traditional colors and design. Like your sparkly nowflake embellishments and your sweet little birdie. :)
