Double the Joy ....

....  Good morning!  I can't quite believe it's already Friday!  Earlier this week I saw that Time Out Challenge DT were running a special challenge as a surprise for Bev (owner of Uniko Studios), who had twin boys on 2nd September.  You can see her post here - such cute boys!!  The theme of the challenge is "Double the Joy" - you need to use two of something on your card.  Here's my card:

Congratulations - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Uniko Studio - All Occasion Sentiments #1; Stampin' Up! - Something for Baby
Inks: Archival - Jet Black; SU - Bashful Blue, Pacific Point, Lucky Limeade, Smoky Slate
Dies: SU/Sizzix - Baby's First Framelits
Accessories: Papermania Tall Card Blank; SU Card - Smoky Slate; White Lustre Card

Congratulation to Karl and Bev on your gorgeous boys - Josh and Ben.  Take lots of photos and enjoy!  They will grow so fast!!  I reckon it could be "double the trouble" with twin boys!!

I used the colours from last week's Colour Throwdown - CTD#309 as they were perfect.  I stamped the cute booties in dark blue and green on the card base.  I cut a panel of light grey card on which I layered a white panel - covered with light grey nappy (diaper) pins.  I stamped two onesies in pale blue and added a tie on each - one in green and one in dark blue.  I finished the front with a simple, bold congratulations sentiment - naturally I used Bev's own stamp!! This card is on its way to Bev and Karl.

I've got to do some house stuff today - hoovering, dusting, tidying and even some ironing!  So that's all for today.  Do drop by tomorrow for the new 52CCT and Waltzingmouse challenges.  See you soon.
