DDD: It's a BEE-u-tiful day!

Happy BEE-day, friends!

There is a lot of buzz on my blog today!

It's the 15th of the month and
that means the Dueling Darlings post our cards with a chosen theme.
Our hostesses are 2/3 of "The Terrys" ~ Terry S and Terry A!

If you are new to my blog,
in a nutshell, the DDD is two teams of card-makers:
The Dueling Darling Divas and the Dazzlers!
There are 2 hostesses for each team every month and
they come up with the theme and send a card kit.
We in turn make a card based on everything sent,
 minus the basics like card stock and glue ...
because we nifty crafters almost almost have that on hand :)

It's on a rotating basis and this month's kit from Terry S is un-BEE-lievable!
Terry is truly such an amazing crafter.
She can take stamped images, one sheet of designer paper,
a string of ribbon and 3 sequins
and somehow make 10 cards :)

So in honor of Terry, I've made 2 cards this month.
I used everything except the ribbon and the alternate image 
and I'll hoard use those at a later time :)
The only thing I used that was my own is the cardstock, 3d foam,
tombo and wink of stella.
Her kit was filled with lots of yellow and black and bee inspired papers ~
it is just darling!

 This was such an incredibly fun card kit!
Thank you, Terry!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
