Twofer Birds


I'm playing along in another challenge, I can't believe it.  I'm surpassing my expectations already.  These Dyan Reaveley stamps (and a stencil used on the grass area) were a magazine freebie, and are perfect for Darnell's Twofer challenge.


The sentiment on the left-hand card is from one of my sets, Birds of Paradise.  All the other stamps are from the freebie set.


I'm entering this second one into Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Clean and Simple




Other freebies in the same magazine included stamps and stencils from Ranger Letter It, Dina Wakley and Wendy Vecchi (great haul!!).  Watch this space....

  1. Oh, those birds are so cute! I see such great magazine freebies it makes me want to subscribe. Then again, I have to keep the sentiment on your second card in mind. These birds would make me feel pretty fabulous, though. Darling cards! Thanks for joining us in our Twofer Birds Challenge!

  4. Congratulations on surpassing your own expectations, much to our delight, Shirley-Girley! Your birdie cards are both colorful and amusing and who doesn't like colorful and amusing? Especially when it's delivered in two separate designs by a bird with polkie-dot wings wearing hiking boots!! I can't wait to see what you share next! Thank you for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #12! Hugs, Darnell

  5. I'm so glad that you went above and beyond because these are a real treat in the gallery, Shirley. Those birds are full of whimsy and your elements and designs on both add to that in such a delightful way! These are just wonderful. Thank you so much for joining us at the Twofer Challenge. Bev

  7. This little bird is so fun, funky and vibrant Shirley ... whether celebrating a birthday (great sentiment BTW) in that fine summer meadow, nibbling on a grassy stalk ... or atop a cool and unique bloom with a perfect (and so true!) message! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer! Hugs, Anita :)
