One sausage ...... two sausage ........

Happy Friday ........

The weekend is here ..... have you got anything nice planned?
We're off on our adventure tomorrow ..... everything's ready, well almost.  Just a few more bits to throw in the van.  It's so much easier than packing suitcases!

Before we go though, I wanted to play along with this month's Twofer Card Challenge.  
It's challenge #41 and it's the last one, so I didn't want to miss it.

That's two cards, for two different occasions, made using the same stamp, die, or stencil and of course following this month's theme ........

I do love having a tidy up and a good old sort out in the craft room.  
As I was packing up ready for the move I came across quite a few stamps that I'd forgotten about, or that had been sat in the NBUS box for a while.  This set was one of them ........ Happy Birthday Sausage from the For the Love of Stamps range by Hunkydory

First up, a birthday card.  How cute is this little puppy?!

Stamped directly onto the card base ....... and water-coloured using ZIG markers

His little jacket is an extra, stamped onto a snippet of coloured card from the bits box, fussy cut and attached over the top.  I added the spots with a white gel pen for a bit more detail.

I stamped the sentiment underneath (from the same stamp set) ......

and finished off with some gold ink splatters.

My Twofer is an anniversary card ....... or, it could be for an engagement or even a wedding card if you changed the colours.

I stamped the happy couple, and coloured them using the markers again.

Gave each of them a different coloured jacket ...... again using snippets from the bits box

And finished off with the sentiment and a pretty heart balloon (all stamps are from the same stamp set)

As these stamps are having their first outing I'm also linking up to this months NBUS Challenge (Never Before Used Schtuff)

Thank you Darnell for the last four years of the Twofer Challenge, it's been fun!

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day and have a fabulous weekend.
I'm off now to finish packing the van.  
As I said, we're off on our travels tomorrow, on the morning boat.  Fingers crossed the weather's good, I haven't checked the forecast yet.  We have booked a cabin though, so if it's bumpy I can sleep through it!

See you on the other side!

Cheerio until next time .......

Stamps: Happy Birthday Sausage (Hunkydory)
Inks: Versafine Clair - Nocturne; Delicata - Golden Glitz (for the splatters)

Two super cute cards Linda and such a versatile set by the looks of it judging by the sentiments.
Enjoy your break away.

I hope you are enjoying your adventure, Linda! You guys never let any moss grow under your feet, that's for sure! Thank you so much for your support of TCC the last four years and for taking time out of that busy schedule to play along in this final challenge! Your sausage dogs are fantastic! Doxies are one of my faves and whether single on a birthday greeting or doubled-up and in love on a romantic greeting, they are irresistibly cute in the jackets you created! Lots of hugs, Darnell
