Handmade Birthday Greeting for My Twin

This Birthday card is for my really good gal pal who lives in Florida. My friend is really my twin with different birth mother’s and father’s. Go ahead.. ponder that one for a bit if you will. We are soul sister’s to be sure. I have heard all my life that there is a twin of you somewhere. Someone who may look JUST like you do. Well my twin S. and I are not identical. At least not in appearance. But quite possibly we are very identical when it comes to personality, temperament, likes, dislikes, etc… We have the same loves, even for falling for most handsome men who have that bad boy quality. But really are not bad boys at all.

My twin S. and I are blessed that we finally found one another, even if it is in our mid-life. Better late than never we both say. See? We are so alike we even sound in stereo when responding. My twin S. has a thing for elephants too which is just one of the random likenesses that we share. Both of us have been collecting elephants for some time. I am the older twin so my collection may be a bit larger. Nanananana…

My twin S.also adores Hedgehogs. Don’t know why,… just now I am reminding myself to ask her why? Below is my twin’s birthday card. Even though we are twins we do not share the same birth date, which is fun because it gives us each one more birthday to celebrate. (I know, we are really difficult to figure out. Can you imagine being in our respective spouse’s shoes?)

My twin, S’ Birthday Card~

The image of the Hedgehogs is homage to my twin and her affinity for this darling critter. One of my passions is using colored pencils and water-color pencils for drawing and adding texture and color to my images.  This is how I added the colors to this card.

The ribbon and heart border are both items my twin had sent me in one of her swap boxes she sent to me. S. took the time to cut me borders from all of her border punches I don’t have, and I believe S has them all. Last count for her punches bordered around 150 and that was some time ago so I’m sure her collection has grown. So if I don’t have and need it i know where to look. The frame is one I had from a set and the flowers are silks from a great grab bag of flowers I had grabbed from Prima some time ago. Another one of my favorite vendors is Prima Marketing. They have the most gorgeous flowers and if I don’t make my own I like to use from my Prima stash.  

Thanks again for stopping by~
