WMS May Release - Day 3

Good morning. Today is day three of the countdown to the WMS May release. Today's preview is for Compact Sentiments Part 2 - a follow up set to Compact Sentiments and loaded with lots more fun phrases. I didn't think Compact Sentiments could get any better, but Part 2 has some really cute ones!

So, I'm just going to come right out and say that this weekend officially whopped my butt. I am hanging by a thread here, so please bear with me! Short and sweet is the word today.

Without further ado..

Combining Chicken Wire with the little bees from L'il Buddies, I played off the bee's knees sentiment.

I used one of the old WMS sketches as my starting point. I colored the little bees with a Copic marker and then added some Stickles to their wings. I think they are pretty cute!

I hope you'll forgive me for the short post today and head over to see what the other ladies have cooked up using Compact Sentiments Part 2!

Have a great day!
