I am still in hot and humid Singapore, but sadly my time is drawing to a close. We have had a ball seeing the sights and crafting. Bestie's Miss 8 has even joined in.
Today I wish to share 2 cards I made for a fabulous friend who has wonderful twin gals (hiya Lizzie and Jess!!!) They are individuals in their own right...so I wanted to make the same card but reflecting their own likes. Now given that I was running short on time...(don't get me started on that old chestnut!!) I wanted to keep it fairly easy. I had seen many versions of dragonflies done with Pick A Petal. These had actually started off as 2 flower cards, but I was not happy with the colour combo, so I simplified it down and came up with these......
Now another change for me was the fact that I made a square card...or 2 if you're going to be technical. Once I had the layout for these in my mind they went up very quickly. I am using my So Swirly wheel a lot more since I took it off the wheel. Here are both the dragonflies close up.....every gal...no matter what age needs a bit of bling on her birthday!!
(for some odd reason Blogger will not let me do these side-by-side...aaarrggghhh!!)
The dragonflies are simply 4 petals from Pick A Petal and then 5 punched circles...a couple of dimensionals and you're away!! I also HAD to use some more of my you beaut big glitter numbers!!
The girls loved their cards and the co-ordinated neck scarves that went with them.
I fly into Sydney again on Tues....sad to see Singapore go. Having a blast!!
