Twin Fun

Hi all.

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 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 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!!

Oh I love these, so simple yet very very effective... I still have taken my wheels apart yet, and I just never use them, another project for me to get onto!
