Spring Animals for the Twofer Card Challenge

Hello, welcome to my blog today! I hope the day is going well for you.
Since my last post I got into some other activities. Like, sitting around too much. After a few days of having NO schedule, I'm trying to structure my time during the days so that life can "feel" a bit more normal again. I intend to  include a daily crafting session again. 

 The Twofer Card Challenge gave me a quick jumpstart. Darnelle hosts this fab challenge where we use the same images to make two different card designs for two different occasions. The challenge theme is Spring Animals. I chose the images from the Woodland Critters stamp set by Pretty Pink Posh.

For my first project a welcome new baby card was needed. I created a softly blended ink background for my scene and added a bow and sentiment banner in pink and sequins. The animals were colored with Copics and the card base and scene were splattered with white paint and Distress Oxide inks. 

I created a tall card - turned on its side - for my second project and intend to send it for encouragement or to say "I miss you."

This time the critters were added with foam tape onto circle windows backed with green patterned paper. This card measures 3.5 x 8".

Here's a glimpse of my cards together. 

I get totally intense and focused when I'm making cards. The process settles me and often leads me to pray. I firmly believe that God hears our prayers and He is the answer to every crisis. I encourage everyone to turn to Him for wholeness, health and life.

This is a time for sending hugs! From a safe distance that is. I'm sending hugs to you today! Thanks so much for your visit.
