Twofer Challenge

Good Morning!

I have some cards to share today for the new challenge blog Twofer Cards Challenge

This months theme is Feathers

Now when I said I had a lovely birthday a few days ago, well, I did...But late in the evening we got a call to tell us that Ian's cousin Joyce, who we often stayed with in Cornwall, had passed away ... She was a very special lady and always reminded me of my dear Aunt so this really how these cards came about. 
First up is a sympathy card

A simple ink blended and water splattered heart with a bird stamp which I also clear embossed

My Twofer card is a birthday card using the same stamp

Again I cut a stencil from my dies and ink blended the BG but this time with balloons

Here they are together

I actually made 3 sympathy cards as Joyce had 3 grown up children - They were all done using the same stamp

You can see that I didn't wipe the ink blended heart enough and some Embossing powder stuck where is shouldn't have - On the photo it doesn't look good, but IRL it adds a pretty glisten to the heart so I didn't mind

And this is the third one

Unfortunately we wont be able to attend the funeral but at least they'll know we're thinking of them

Well that's it for awhile... Take care whilst I'm gone, I hope to be able to visit you very soon
