A bee in my tea!

What would you do if you found a bee in your morning tea?  
your very first cup of the day?  
That's how my day started.
As the bee was boiled, still in one piece, and quite dead, I plucked it out of the cup and took my first, wonderful sip of the day.  
Unfortunately, the insect was too soggy to 'look good on a card'.


Last week a friend posted a snake her daughter, age 9, had drawn.
I told her Layla could draw some pictures for on my cards.  It was really very good.   A few days ago I received a colored drawing of a fish in the mail.  I did some sizing, some flipping, some copying and some fussy cutting and used it for her parents' anniversary card.  
Won't they be surprised!

original drawing by Layla age 9 (oh my, she might be 10 already!)
Challenges I am entering:
Aud Sentiments Challenge #156 - Anything Goes + a sentiment 
Digi Stamps 4 Joy May Challenge #124 - Anything Goes & ribbon

My DH just made me another cup of tea and offered to retrieve the bee from the trash for garnishment.  Isn't he sweet!
