Twofer Challenge #28

Summertime. Normally a time for going to the beach, camping in the mountains, water sports, vacations, cookouts, fireworks, and all those fun things we do in sandals. Not so much this year I'm thinking. Later this week, my excitement will be to ask my neighbor to come over and toss back a few gin and lemonades on the patio, keeping the requisite social distance of course...if I can find the courage to have a little drinky-pooh (migraine trigger). Might be worth the headache, though...hahahaha!

I'm still searching for my new normal, but I'm not going to push it; it'll come all in good time. I do have a couple of cards for The Twofer Challenge to show you. I'll admit I did them back in February when John was 'slowing down,' so just this post is new. There are so many directions to take this prompt. And I know we all have some kind of circle or bubble in our stash, right?! (ok, ok...some of us have several/many/lots!!)

Here are my two cards, photographed together:

A masculine-ish birthday card, and a thank you card.

For this card, I cut summertime mountains with MFT's triangle dies in three colors. Then I cut a circle with the WPlus9 circle, and tucked it behind the mountains. The border is a rich, deep green color, but of course you can't tell in either photo... The sentiment is from HA. 

Circles and polka dots! That cute paper is from Doodlebug, and it makes me smile. I found a scrap of that tealish color that matched perfectly, and I used that very same WPlus9 circle die and cut out several to pop on top. The diecut sentiment is from Avery Elle, and I scattered some sequins around for just an extra touch of flavor. 

So that's it for me this time. Be sure you stop by The Twofer Challenge blog and see what the other members of the DT have created. Oh!, and our lovely Guest Designers, Jenny and Linda, have made a little something special too! See you in the gallery!
