Here they are photographed together:
The card with the chevron panel is actually a birthday card for a dear friend, while the second card is for my friend and hairdresser who came to my house to give me a haircut when I couldn't leave DH for an hour to go to her salon. I've used a vast variety of stamps and dies on these cards, and the list is as follows starting with the top card:
Doodlebug chevron paper, MFT wonky frame die, PTI cups, Verve sentiment, MFT hearts.
And the bottom card:
Hero Arts green cardstock, unknown gingham paper, Verve sentiment, PTI cup, Poppystamps leaf die, Mama Elephant scalloped border die, MFT scalloped circle, and a WPlus9 circle die.
Now...if you haven't popped over to the Twofer Challenge Blog yet, I'd encourage you to do just that! My teammates have once again really smashed it out of the park, and you'll be amazed at their creations. And be sure to check out our Guest Designers, Bonnie and Marianne, too! Once you've been inspired by all the lovely cards you find there, I hope you'll play along! Just make two different cards for two different occasions using the same stamps and/or dies. Don't forget to photograph them together when you're ready to pop them in the gallery.

In case you've been wondering, DH has been dealing with some health issues since the first of the year. At nearly 81 years old, these things happen sometimes. He'd been losing strength in his legs, and after three angioplasties in his lower legs, which helped his circulation, the strength continued to decline. About six weeks ago, he literally collapsed in a chair and couldn't get up. After a trip to the ER, and a four-day hospital stay, he's been in a rehab unit rebuilding his abilities. Our house was pretty well set up for his using the walker, but it needed to be tweaked a bit. So that's what I've been doing in between driving to and from the Rehab Center and spending time with him there. I finished all the big projects and he did well on a home visit with one of his Physical Therapists in attendance. She was pleased with our 'set-up,' and with his maneuvering around the house. He should be home in a few days, and once I get him into a good routine, I hope to be back much more in blogland. But for today, I need to go spend time with my sweetie pie. Take care, and ...
