Where did the Summer Go Darlings?!

Hey Everyone! I've been really crafty today! Yay!
This Summer has flown by hasn't it?!
I didn't get to do a lot of crafty things during the hot temps. I missed 2 Dueling Darling Challenges.
The month of July ~ Hostess Terry
and the month of August ~ Hostess Paola
This is the card I made with Terry's July kit.

She sent the cutest image and felt flowers. I love the sentiment also. The papers she sent had great pastels in them. The ribbons and flowers she sent went great with them!

Here's the inside.

Now, when I slack I really do a bang up job. I missed 2 months in a row with my sweet Dueling Darling Group.
This is the card I made with Paola's kit.

What a cute image. She sent a wonderful Summer kit. The circles I punched are from the patterned papers she sent. She also sent the blue embossed c/s behind my image. SO CUTE! I used some green ribbon that she sent as well. I love it! I want to get some of that!
Well, there is my July and August Dueling Darling Dazzler cards.
So, so sorry it took me so long.

Until next time...
Blessings...

Awww, Melina, these cards are GREAT!! Such pretty colors on both of them and the images were fun, weren't they?!
I love how you used the Doily diecut to frame the bear's head!
And the EF on the blue background paper looks just like water!!
Both are just wonderful.

Such cute cards, Melina!

I love how you treated the bear image. It looks really good on the Nestie.

That bird still makes me giggle! Your idea on the circles and punching the words from the DP is one I will have to remember!
