2 for 1





Yep, here is 2 cards for one challenge. I went over and checked out the challenge at The House that Stamps Built, it's to make a card with birds. So I pulled out some of my Heartfelt Creations stamps (3383 Cardinal Posy Branch and the sentiment is from 3388 Spring Cardinals) and went to work. Then went back and was just looking around the site to see what else they had and guess what, I have 7 of their flip card sets. How to can be found here. One which is the bird, so I made a card using that one too! You know me, can't leave it plain so I embossed the background with the flip card, anywho, wish me luck and thanks Cheri for the inspiration to check that site out!!!!

Both are gorgeous...I love, love, love that flip card, though. I used to make quite a lot of those but got away from it after a while but I still love them. Both are winners in my book!!! Have a great week, Olga....
