I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies.

Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Darnell has been running a
 Twofer Challenge every month, and I did join in earlier in the year, but couldn't manage for a quite a few months, so I thought it was about time I tried to join in.
So I made time to make my Twofer cards this morning.

The challenge is to make 2 cards using the same stamps or die cuts for different occasions, and leaves is the challenge this month.
Here is my effort one is a 7"x7" in size, and the other is 5"x7" in size.
I started by spraying snippets of white card with Tattered Angels Mica sprays in Orange, Red, Yellow, and a Brown which are colours you find in Autumn Leaves.
When dry I stamped my leaves that came as a freebie last month with the Creative Stamping Magazine with Versafine Ink in my Misti.
The sentiments were also from the same set.
Then I set about designing my cards.
Sorry the photos don't show up the lovely mica look to the sprayed card it seems to have come out looking very dull.

Thank you for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate each visit and the wonderful comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

There's a lovely dreaminess to your twofer cards, Jenny ... the sprays make for such rich, saturated backgrounds ... those delicate leaves are lovely against them on both cards! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer! Hugs, Anita :)

Wonderful twofer, Jenny! I love the shimmer of mica sprays, it's just sad that they are so photo-shy because I know that your cards just shine! The style of your sentiments are perfect with those leaves! So glad that you joined us at the Twofer Card Challenge!
