Another Bee Twofer & some pics

This is my second entry for this month's Twofer Card Challenge. I mentioned in my last entry, that I only had one bee stamp available as I've been  staying at our beach house. Well I went back home to check on the progress of renovations at home and whilst I was there I found another 🐝  stamp:)

I had a lot of fun creating these 2 cards.

The bee is from WPlus9 C'est La Vie stamp set and the sentiment dies are from Concord & 9th 'Just Because' Die set. I'm not sure of the brand for the embossing folder. The bees and die-cuts were coloured with Zig Markers and I added shimmer to wings with Wink of Stellar.

I stamped the flowers from Stamplorations Blossom Overture Bloom Sketches and coloured with my trusty Zig Markers. I blended with clear Wink of Stellar. The oval die frame is from MFT/Dienamics.
Once again I used the WPLUS9 bee and was very proud of my fussy cutting efforts.

I'm entering the following challenges:-

Here are some pics I took on my afternoon walk after a day and a half of rain.

I feel very blessed to be able to call this place my second home 🏡 :)


  1. You sure are blessed with your second home and thank you for sharing those fabulous photos x What creative and wonderful cards and such a unique take on the challenge x.

  2. It's a good thing you can't see me right now, Jenny, because I'm a vivid shade of green from seeing your lovely beach photos! You are indeed blessed and I'm very happy for you! How fun that you found this very real-looking bee to make another fabulous twofer for us! You did a great job fussy-cutting it four times. Your trio of bees looks great on your dimensional first design with the colorful unique sentiment and your single bee is in bee heaven in that beautiful pollen-rich garden! Great oval framing! Thank you for playing again in Twofer Card Challenge #17! Hugs, Darnell
