The Latest Buzz

The Queen Bees are at it again with another swap.
Carole gave the suggestion that we make kits of similair items to send to each of us.
Believe it or not, this is our biggest challenge yet since some of us sent very unusual items to alter (smashed and toasted kipper tin, an embroidery hoop with some fabric but no hints or instructions...)
I started with Margaret's lot since I am most comfortable with paper. She sent us each a different "bloke" and a BINGO card of some sort for our base.

I created "Handsom Dan" (named so for obvious reasons!) who wears a ridiculously large tie tack (spinner).
And because I was messing around with the layout while I was working at the Post Office (shhhh, don't tell the post mistress), I gave Dan a postmark halo as a souvenir (although he is no saint!)
This is just a peek. You will have to watch Margaret's blog for the whole reveal.
Three kits to go...
You can find the Queen Bee blogs on my sidebar.
OH! And please stop by my previous post for a giveaway, if you haven't already!

What an interesting challenge. Dan does not look saintly at all, despite that halo. In fact his shielded eyes hide his true intentions, which I suspect depends on the direction the spinner is pointing.

Love this little sneaky peek - looking forward to seeing the rest.
