Busy Bee's and WoywW #534

Hello Everyone..

I've been away camping for the week but it's 
nice to be back sharing my desk this Wednesday 
thanks to our host Julia over at the stamping ground..

I'd forgotten just how out of control this area is 
hardly an inch spare to squeeze in and create!

Here's what's amongst one pile, a batch of Bee cards 
stamped and coloured with a variety of sentiments.

Sat in the garden early morning with a cuppa, 
this card will be flying off to a friend today 
but I thought i'd share it up close with you and the ladies 
over at TioT and their In my Garden there is challenge first.

Look forward to catching up with you all and seeing 
WOYWW in between wading my way through the washing..

Creative Hugs 
Tracey xx


  1. Hi Tracey, love your cards and your workspace. I seriously need to reorganise mine, but my desk is right by the window - great for light but not for storage. Thanks for all your visits and kind comments. Don't let the washing get you down too much, Jo x

  2. Your cards are gorgeous, love those busy bees, and your workplace looks good to me! Hope you enjoyed your camping. Hugs, Valerie

  3. Love your bee cards! Your workspace looks great too! Happy WOYWW!

  5. Oh Tracey gorgeous. Enjoy your week . Helen #1

  6. Hi Tracey. Love your desk and your lovely Bee cards. You are certainly busy anyway, like me I can always find something to do. have a Good Week. Hugs Rita xxx

  7. I love your bee cards, Tracey, and how beautifully you have coloured them. The bees look ready to take off and fly away! I have a couple of bee stamps and various honeycomb-making stamps, stencils etc. I have a friend who is a bee keeper and I usually try and make her a birthday card that features a bee. Thank you for your visit and for your supportive comments about my PIP assessment. I just wish the whole thing was over but I wish even more that I didn't have to go through it at all! We had such a lovely day on the moors and my chariot did pretty well! I'm glad you liked my make-up remover pads. They were fun to make but quite tough to sew threw the layers.

    Happy WOYWW,

  8. Hi Tracey, love your cards. The bees are so like the real thing - that's down to your beautiful colouring - and not at all scary. I'd offer to help get your desk under control again but really would you want me to do that - I'm sure you know where everything is as it is. Have a great week. Elizabeth x #19

  9. Lovely cards - I find that anything with bees on goes straight away! I walked past a big clump of ivy flowers yesterday and there were hundreds of little bees all over it - my son a nd I stood and watched for ages. Hope you had a good time camping, the weather has been alternately amazing/rainy..hope you did ok!

    Sweltering hot here for last few days - so if same up with you your washing should dry quickly - have fun :) Gill xx

  12. Your work space looks like a treasure trove to me. I am in love with your cards- I seem to be addicted to buying Bee stamps and dies at the moment - Not using them ( I must!) just buying ha ha

  19. Your cards are simoly amazing dear Tracey, gorgeous - those bees look so good and I think your workplace looks perfect! Hope so you really enjoyed your camping! Big hugs, Susi

    1. And thank you so much for joining in at Try It On Tuesday dear Tracey!

  20. Hope you got all the laundry done, it sure dries quick with this warm weather (or did you have rain yet?) I do love the big bee on the card, gorgeous! Thanks for your visit to my blog the other day, happy - belated - woyww. Hug from Holland. Marit #14

  21. What fabulous bee cards Tracey. Hope you had decent weather for your camping trip and all the washing is caught up with soon. You certainly have a busy desk this week lol. Happy WOYWW. Sarah #7

  22. Wow, that is a big bee stamp, absolutely beautiful and what lovely cards. I adore bees, ever since the bomb in Manchester I have become addicted to them, even searched and searched until I found a bee necklace I liked which I wear when i go out - not that often but I look at it other days. We went on the bee hunt in Manchester which took us about three days in total, it was great fun and I ended up with a bee painted on my face - never too old for a bit of fun!
    Glad you had a good week away, camping? Tent or caravan?
    Hugs, Neet 2 xx
    ps hope hubby is feeling ok these days

  23. I just love those cards - I have a real soft spot for bees. I've been potting up plants to try and entice them into my tiny garden.

    Thank you for your always lovely comments over at mine. You don't need to have your time again! I am 42 and only just starting with textiles. I wish I'd started earlier - way earlier but I'm starting now. And my creative space is fab - it took a long time to get it - it's in my garage. The only trouble is it's only properly usable for a few months of the year - right now t's like a sauna out there and then in the winter it's freezing. I get a few weeks in spring and autumn when you can't get me out of there :D

    See you next week! Carmen x #30

  24. Hi Tracey,
    Thanks for stopping by. Your mum is a better woman than me, knitting for 7 year olds. I think my cut off point is more like 5!
    Your workdesk is clearly a hive of industry, and your gorgeous bee cards have left me buzzing!
    Amelia #29

  25. Such lovely 'Bee' cards you've created Tracey!! (and bees are a wonderful thing to have in your garden!) Looks like your work space is a happy beezy place! Hugs to you, karen o

  26. Tracey I had to smile seeing your desk, oh my, it looks like mine - I never have much place for creating on the table , lol-
    I hope you had a lovely camping week, and I look forward seeing you on my blog, again, -I`m saying this because so many strange things are happening with blogging, for me, - so in fact I don`t know if you have been there,the last two posts I did,- or if your comment has been rejected ? Your bees cards are wonderfully sweet , -the stamp seems quiet big , and beautiful. Dear friend, I hope you are soon on the end of washing the vacation clothes , and wish you a great weekend, soon there, again.
    Biggest hugs and take care . Dorthe xxxxx

  27. Hope you enjoyed a week of other pastures and fresh air. The bee cards are just lovely...see, I would have shivered at the size of that image and imagined it always on a square card, but it loses none of its impact in being trimmed for the C6 size. You are so clever...your inspirational eye is terrific.

  28. LOL. Your workspace looks much like mine at the moment, except for the bee cards. The bee image you used is gorgeous. I just got one of those mini die cutting machines, it is such a useful size for the small stuff.

    You certainly chose a great time to go camping with the weather we have been having, I hope you had a great time. I hope you have a lovely weekend ahead too. Hugs, Anne xx

  29. Love your busy bees... and oh, how I know the feeling of that creative space shrinking and shrinking as the piles of stuff mount up!

    What a super stamp.... not that I'm in the market you understand! Love the concept.
    Happy belated (very!) WOYWW

  34. Trace your desk looks like a happy place to me. I always work better when I have a slight mess-but too big of a mess and forget it. I would say your desk is the right spot for me. And I love the bee card. It is adorable. Thanks so much for joining us at Try It On Tuesday with this fabulous garden inspired piece. Hugs-Erika

  35. Okay Tracey, I’m really really late, but since I’m here I’m enjoying your share immensely, love those bee cards very pretty details on that image, not sure if stamp or digi but it’s really gorgeous, wonderful space and mine is like that till do push and shove methods to make a space!
    Happy very belated WOYWW. Thanks for sharing, Shaz in Oz.x #4
