Birthday cards for Twins

My daughter asked me to make a couple of cards for her future mother-in-law and her twin sister. These lovely ladies are in their early sixties. I decided to do two similar cards but in different colours. Lucy had printed out some text paper and changed the colours to match her card stock. She kindly emailed me the word document and I did the same for these cards... one in pale purple and one in pale blue. I used Distress inks to edge the cards and to give a bit of colour to the paper. I stamped the images off onto scrap and then did a 2nd generation stamping onto the paper. The flowers are a HA's set that I embossed in white onto coloured card and patterned papers. I clear embossed the leaves onto green card and cut out. Each flower has the appropriate coloured eyelet in the centre. The sentiment is from Stamp-it. I hope Emz likes the cards and that Rai and Heather do as well.

This will probably be the last post for a week or so as tomorrow night I will be busy getting the last minute packing done. It will be an early night as the shuttle is picking us up just after 4.00am in the morning to get to the airport ( we live about 45-50 mins drive away) for 6.50am flight to Cairns. I have got half my packing done. It is hard to decide what to take and what not to take.... You never know when you might need that t-shirt or those shorts.... plus I better take something for a nice night out....
Well thanks for stopping by. Have a great rest of the week.
