For the Twins

Our daughter's two best friends are twin sisters.  It's really kind of fun to watch them all together.  They are great girls and they so enjoy spending time together doing, well WHATEVER.  They love all the same things, could talk forever on the phone and laugh at all the same stuff, you remember being 13 right?  Well, the twin's birthday is this week, and there's a big party, so I put together some cards for the girls. 


I've had this Tulip Girl Cornish Heritage Farms image for months.  I actually stamped it at my Copic Certification with Sherrie Siemens and just found it again the other day.  I just love how she looks with the tulips in her skirt.  So sweet!  I colored her with really rich copic colors.  I thought she paired really well with these Cosmo Cricket papers too.  I tied a triple bow with my Bow Easy too.



For the second twin I used today's Sketch from SCS and my cutie patootie MFT Pure Innocence Snow Day girl.  I paper pieced her outfit (oh isn't it cute - especially her printed tights), with Memory Box Spiceberry paper. 



Her skin and boots are copic colored, and the snowballs are liquid applique.  Isn't that ribbon yummy?  It's Chenille Dots from Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Store



So hopefully the girls will like them.  :)
