Twofer Challenge - Birds

Hi there,

I'm here today to share a couple of cards with you that I've made for Darnell's 'Twofer Card Challenge.' The theme this month is 'Birds' and so I thought it seemed like a great opportunity to add a couple of extra cards to my stash.  Here's what I've made:



The fabulous seagull stamp is one of the latest by Crafty Individuals (CI-576) and I have to say that I've really enjoyed using him.  It's a great size stamp and so useful, especially for making cards for the men in our lives. The backing paper that I've used on my retirement card is also by Crafty Individuals.

That's all from me for today, so I wish you all a wonderful end to the week and I hope that the sun shines for you xx

Clever how you've used the wonderful seagull image so differently on both of your fabulous cards. Yes great for masculine cards Sandra x. Enjoy your weekend too and hope the sun shines for you x.

Wow! Amazing cards! Love the seagull and how fun is the first one! The two signs with the choice for ice cream and fish&chips make me giggle!! The seagulls seem prefer the ice cream, such a surprise! LOL :D

What fabulous cards Sandra..there is something so charming about this seagull image although we curse them when we are eating and they can be intimidating when in large numbers, here they have been captured beautifully and love the way you have designed the Twofers. The retirement card looks great with the woodgrain background and a wonderful idea to place the sentiment over the original sign, and the the more scenic one with the inky background giving the feeling of the sea on a sunny day, and love the added graphs and water drops. x

It's a great stamp and I love how you used it on both cards. The woodgrain in particular looks so effective.

Sandra, you have brought that magnificent seagull to life on your two wonderful nautical designs, perfect for any gender! I love the way you added the water droplets to the birthday card; I have that stamp and struggle with ideas, so thank you for that! And I think the wood plank pp is a perfect background on your retirement design! Thank you for playing in TCC #40! Hugs, Darnell
