More bees

When I posted this card the other day,  little did I know that just a couple of hours later the new Twofers theme would be announced as BEES.  Well, that saved me from having to tidy up the craft table, didn't it? I could use the same stamp set, the same stencil and most of the same inks.

The first card is a birthday card.

I stamped it with Memento ink and coloured it with pencils. I am sharing this card with Watercooler Wednesdays - All About Occasions. 

For the second card I used the stencil and shades of tan and yellow ink to make the background and edged it with black peel off borders. I stamped and heat embossed the bee across a strip of card and coloured it with markers and Stickles then added peel off borders and stuck it across my card. Finally I added a die cut sentiment.

I am popping back to Shopping Our Stash for a second entry into the Stencil Me This challenge

And finally the two cards together:

I am, of course, sharing this (hopefully) not-so-gruesome twosome with The Twofer Card Challenge 

And I'm also popping back to Country View Challenges for a second bite of the cherry in the It's a Bug's Life challenge

Oh now...these are just plain fun! These two "bee-auties" had me smiling from the get-go. Love the garden scene with the hives on your first card, and all the shimmer on those fabulous bees! And that honeycomb stencil on your second card is perfectly colored! Those thin black borders really set off the panels of this card well. And those glittery wings! Wonderful cards, Jane. Thank you for joining us at the Twofer Challenge! Bev

Two gorgeous cards Jane. I'm just wondering about your comment on 'tidying your craft desk'. When the hell do you manage to do that? Lol. Love Dawn x
