I Spy YNS Saturday – Honey Bear

This week we spied honey, lots and lots of honey on a card created by Becky Lillibridge!

Becky described her creation as a “sweet little bear card” and it truly is!

The honey comb background creates a warm setting for Honey Bear.  The sentiment pops against all that yellow.

You can find more of Becky’s creations on Instagram where she goes by beckynoelle.


We are always on the lookout for awesome customer creations.   Be sure to tag your photos with #yournextstamp.

If you use the sketch feel free to swap out shapes or rotate; so long as we can see the basic sketch was your inspiration.
