Twins card

Hi Everyone, we have had the beautiful day here today, it actually feels like Spring has sprung.

I saw the Eurovision Song Contest last night and have to admit to liking the winner Denmark and also Russia's entry.  Our Bonnie Tyler, I say our Bonnie, as she was born about a mile from here and now lives in beautiful Mumbles on the Gower coast of Wales, didn't  come close to winning, she tried and that is all we can ask.

My card for today is for a colleague in work, whose wife had twin boys last week.  I read somewhere a while ago that twins, when they were adults, were sharing out baby things, and when it came to their cards, had to make choices, as to which they would take, they both wanted one particular card and it caused a problem for them.   So I thought I would do 2 identical cards for these boys, but make them for each individual child.

I followed a sketch by Katie Tate PC #108
I used papers from various designers. The cutie image is from Trina Clark, I followed the colour of the pre coloured image for the rest of the card.  I 3 D'd the image and added a little Glamour Dust. I then made a corner piece and entered their names, making each twin a card with their name central.

  9. Two fab and perfect cards Faith and I think it's very thoughtful of you to make the twins one each. I always feel sorry for twins when they get one card or present to share - it's so unfair as they are two separate people!!
