My favourite quote

My card today is for Aurora Wings Challenges
and the theme is "My Favourite Quote".
This is a quote my dad used to always
say when one felt 'down in the dumps'
and you feel like you have nothing!
As most of you know, dad lived
to almost 103 with a great
positive attitude.
That was something.

We always had bees and honey as children so my choice 
of image is most appropriate to the quote and we
never went without, no matter how poor 
we were. Another reason why my card
is 'simple'...! We had a simple but
rewarding life overall.

Honey Bee Sprite can be found here and was coloured
with copic markers.

Aurora Wings Challenge....Favourite Quote
Stamps by Aurora Facebook....inspired by food....[honey]

You will find my CANDY HERE

Me again, from what I can gather UK postage will be between 7 and 10 GBP from Spain will be alot more expensive. I am in UK on 7th December, I can post then if you can wait and still want some. xx
