Getting a buzz out of quilling

Here's another card that I've made this week, featuring a photo of a bee hive in some beautiful gardens, complemented by a quilling of a bee.

I took the photo of the bee hive last month in the kitchen garden of a lovely country house called Standen, which is in the southern English county of Sussex. It was a gorgeous sunny day when I went there, and the bees were buzzing all around. I knew that my picture would make the ideal background for a card, but have only just got around to making it! For me, it brings back happy memories of a brilliant day out, and I made it for a friend who has just come home from hospital. I hope that it will help her to feel better soon.


  1. What a great card and I just love the way you made that bee

  2. I am sure your card will cheer up your friend. I love the way you shape the wings, two coils pinched exactly the same way.

  3. Thanks! I've been experimenting with making bees for a while, and I think this is the best so far. I've just had a mail from the friend who received the card, and she was very pleased with it, which is nice.
