Phindy's #65 Sharing Daniel's icecream

Theme at Phindy's Place - use two of something

Yes, it doesn't matter what the two of something is - could be images/buttons/brads etc - just this week we would like to see where using 2 takes you. My card uses the image of 'Sharing',  though whether his generosity is through his misfortune of spilling his dripping ice or vaguely intentional, is perhaps debatable! LOL. I have visions of him moving off towards the sea, seeing a wave rolling in under his feet & promptly plopping down into the ripples. Yes, I know - you are asking yourselves why I have put a caterpillar onto sand - but there again, why not? LOL. Maybe the little lad brought his pet caterpillar on holiday with him! LOL.

The image has been coloured with Promarkers though I also paper pieced a couple of elements of his clothing - two pieces of course, LOL, his shorts & sun hat.  The other sets of 2 on my card are: 2 rows of stitching, 2 eyelets, 2 Flemish knots in 2 'ropes' (aka string!) & 2 corners embellished with triangles. I do have two is just that the second one is in the inside, along with a recoloured sentiment from Elegant WordArt and the birthday wishes I added on the PC.

Hope you like it and would love to join in with the challenge at Phindy's Place this week. If you can use one of Phindy's images, we just love seeing them, but it isn't compulsory - though as an incentive you can add your card twice into the challenge to double your chances of winning.  What is more, if you just love Phindy's images do you know there is a DT call on? Sadly, my time is nearly up but this gives you the chance to be part of a great team. If you think you might be interested & would like a few more details it is on the blog here.  In the mean time, I hope to see your entries at Phindy's Challenge this week.
