Twofer Birds

Hey all - I'm skating in with a quick pair for this month's Twofer Challenge. I caught an obnoxious cold and my head feels like it's going to explode. Didn't prevent me from pulling out my crazy birds set - LOL. Just had to stop often to blot the tears streaming from my eyes...

Like I said, I pulled out the crazy birds thinking I'd make a crowd for a thinking of you card and a pair of birds for a Valentine card. First stamped and masked two of the birds, then stamped three more behind. Then I stamped two more birds and die cut with the matching dies. Colored up with Copics, arranged on cards - DONE! Could've done more detailing but I'm in a hurry these days. I'm so excited to have been able to squeeze in a twofer this month!!

Supplies: Paper - Neenah Classic Crest Solar, White; DCWV A2 cards;
Michael's Vintage Valentine 6x6 pad
Stamps - Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection Bird Crazy;
Paper Smooches All Year Cheer; Hero Arts retired for musical notes and sentiment
Dies - My Favorite Things various retired Blueprints; Bird Crazy matching dies
Other - Paper Studio heart stickers

Looking forward to visiting your blogs more often when life is a little less hectic. I appreciate your visit - many thanks and happy crafting!!

So sorry if I haven't commented on your blog lately. I do a lot of my commenting from my phone and it's been having a hard time linking to my blog profile. Some people don't accept anonymous comments so I don't even try. Anyway - I'll get there when I can - thanks for understanding!
