Hap-Bee Birthday

Hello friends!  Today I'm taking a few liberties with the word 'happy'.  I'm not sure I should have done that; sometimes I worry people won't get what I'm trying to say, LOL.

This is another awesome image from Heather at Lacy Sunshine.  I copied the two bees in Photoshop Elements, enlarged them and added them to the hand stitched border.  I love the ruler I bought from Stampin' Up,  makes it so easy to add the piercing.
