  My twin grandsons have their birthday on Friday and are going on their first beach holiday, so I thought I would reflect that in the cards I made for them. I generally make similar ones for them, then there can be no argument! This is one of the cards.
  This image is from a stamp called 'sailing boat' from Joanna Sheen's Faye Whittaker  collection. I coloured it with Promarkers, cut it out and decoupaged it onto a background formed from various layers of mulberry paper. The two large balloons are made from honeycomb paper and are tied together with a label.

  I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
  Joanna Sheen - boys will be boys
  Dream Valley - summer days
  Cute Card Thursday - beside the sea
  Eureka Stamps - anything goes
  Incy Wincy Designs - birthdays and balloons

  And so that one twin does not feel favoured over the other here is the other card. The image used is from the same collection and is called 'sandcastle'.
