Twofer Challenge #14

Hi Everyone,

 have you been waiting for my Twofer entry? I hope so ;)

Well, here it is:


I figured, since I had time constraints to utilize past labor for this. A while back I had made that happy birthday card - actually I made two of them for the twins of a friend of mine and I had waited for an opportunity to show them. Thanks to Twofer that moment is here! But I still needed a second card - and you saw that yesterday - I hope the Twofer people don't mind.... Anyhow, if they do, they can discard my entry....

So I re-purposed the balloon and turned it into boulders. Added different animals.


And here you can see all cards separately. Debby Hughes inspired my with her coloring, although she does a much better job than I do....


The cute monster is from the set Monster Hugs from Simon Says Stamps (a Concord and 9th exclusive).

It's really a Threefer.....


If you want to know the details about this card you can read all on it HERE

And may I remind you about our own little challenge - the Day of the Month Card Club - the theme is HAPPY - I am sure you can find a card to link up!

Unser Logo zum Mitnehmen! / Our logo to take away!

I am linking up with:
Twofer challenge - balloons
Watercooler Wednesday challenge - anything masculine (birthday card with the blue balloon)
Simon Says Wednesday challenge - cute (monster cards)
Time Out - birthday celebration (monster cards)






 

Happy Twofing!

Definitely should be included in the Twofer because they're both brilliant. Using the baloons for the stones...why can't I think like that. For goodness sake, you're mind it so clever.

Your cards are adorable and I love your watercolouring. Thanks for playing along with us at Watercooler Wednesday.

It's clear you've been inspired by Debby, Cornelia. Your watercoloring of those balloons and especially that collapsed elephant is, in turn, inspiring ME! I don't mind that your Twofers were posted separately, since they weren't backlinked. (By the way, we do appreciate that you brought your photo from yesterday over to today; that does make it easier on the Team.)

I think your monster birthday cards for the boy/girl twins are so darn cute! Love the schplatters and the striped border! And your get well card made my jaw drop! How beyond is your cleverness to think of making boulders for the sick little ellie to lie beside, out of the sun! You are too much! Even the concerned chicken can't believe you did that!!

Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #14 to keep your streak alive! Hugs, Darnell

You already know how fun and funny I found your poor elephant and curious chicken, Cornelia ... such great use of the balloon for the boulders! That little balloon-holding birthday monster is adorable in both colour combo's ... such great colouring ... the sense of dimension is brilliant! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer! Hugs, Anita :)

Love your sweet monster card! Your color choices are both fun and creative. Thanks for joining us at Watercooler Wednesday.

Darauf muss man erst mal kommen, einen Ballonstempel als Steine zu verwenden, dabei ist es doch naheliegend. Beide Karte sind großartig gemacht, bin begeistert.

Great two-fering! Jo x

I don't believe this! First balloon boulders I've seen! You are simply amazing to think of it. I absolutely love the scene you created with the poor elephant and worried chicken. The stamps are hilarious! Your coloring is beautifully done and interesting, including the darling little monster with the birthday balloon. Really outstanding entry in our Twofer challenge, Cornelia!

Fantastic colouring as always Cornelia. Love those sweet monsters with the balloons. And how creative and clever to turn the balloons into rocks around the sad elephant. Awesome designs. Thanks for playing along with Twofer Card Challenge.

Congrats on the new challenge!! Very exciting!

OMG your a genius!! I just saw another card where she turned her balloons into halloween pumpkins....so many clever people around in blogland!! I so love the animal images you used, especially the deflated elephant, I feel like him at some point every day! Your colouring as always is exceptional and I'm so happy your celebrating with us at TIME OUT!

Hahaha, I love this wasted elephant and surprised hen. Great combination of two stamps sets. And the coloring and painting technique of the monster just amazed me, Cornelia.
