Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

I have just managed to make 2 cards for DARNELL'S TWOFER CHALLENGE 
 which closes on the 24th of this month.
I am quite late with these, but still in time thank goodness.
Just couldn't think of a design to use till tonight, and then I am not really happy with these.

These are both 6"x6" in size.
The feather stamps were a freebie from a craft magazine.
Used IZINKS, DOI, Memento Inks on these.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
Lots of crafty Love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter these into the following challenges.

Hi Jenny, two lovely cards, love the colours on the purple and green card, and the repeated sentiment amongst the feathers on the second looks great too. Have a wonderful week... Megan

I'm so glad you were able to join in the feather 2-fer challenge. I found it a challenge too, as I don't have any feather stamps. I think you did very well with each of these cards. Love the frou-frou feathers you've tucked on the purple card. Good idea to have the feathered background on both the base and the pretty colored oval. Good color combination too. It's a beautiful thank you card. #2 is equally lovely with th e soft shades of blue & pink, and I like the feather stamping. This will be a super encouragement card or just to say 'hello' as you've stamped on it! Liked the corner trims too. I think you did a great job with each card. TFS & Hugs

Both cards are beautiful Jenny and certainly very look very different despite using the same stamp. Fabulous stamping and inking, the colours and designs are lovely. This is the first time I've come across this challenge, had to go and have a's brilliant, what a clever idea Darnell has come up with, it really IS a challenge. Well done you for taking part and creating such a beautiful entry!

Such gorgeous colors and beautiful stamping on both of your designs! The tufts of feathers, die cut, and colorful ribbon add beautiful dimension on your thank you card. I love the scattered dragon flies and such that add a friendly "hello" on your second card. Thanks for joining in on the fun at Twofer Card Challenge!

These are both so pretty, Jenny ... the soft colours on the hello card are fabulous with the delicacy of the feathers ... and the die cut, scrunchy bow and feathery tufts on the thank you card add such delicious texture and dimension! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer! Anita :)
