Wheelie It's Twofer Time

Hello friends. I hope you had a great weekend!

 First up is a birthday card for my grandson.

Looks like the motorcycle is starting to pop a wheelie.
I'm glad he isn't on it!

And for my Twofer
a crazy bird to lift someone's spirits.

These wheelie eyes make this bird look even crazier.
It makes me laugh. 

I've actually winked those eyes, but the camera doesn't see that.

I used watercolor pencils to color the first card and
Distress Markers and a water brush to color the second.

It's going to be fun to see how wheels are used this month over at

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Love the effect of the repeat stamping on your first card, which gives great movement to your wonderful card for your grandson x.
What a fabulous way to use the wheel on your second card Bonnie....such fun and so creative, with a great sentiment too x.
Both of your cards are amazing x

WOW, Bonnie, you really did a spectacular job of showing that motorcycle moving across the panel and I love the yellow color! I'm going to have to remember that cool effect with The Mister's next birthday card. Your GS will love this! And I really love the way you turned those motorcycle wheels into krazy eyeballs for that krazy bird! In a word: GENIUS!! The sediment is perfect and great job dotting and dashing a border! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #16! Hugs, Darnell

Oh my goodness Bonnie! This is so cute and creative. I LOVE them both!

Christine Alexander said...

Bonnie, that's so clever using the wheels for eyes on your bird they certainly make him look a little wild . Two amazing cards :)

Robyn Oliver said...

Bonnie your two Twofer Cards are fantastic... Amazing movement with the motorcycle and then to use the wheels for the birds eyes, wonderful idea.

Loll said...

Such fun and creative cards Bonnie! Love the movement of your first card having the second and third generation stamping to show this awesome motorcycle speeding down the road. Your grandson is going to love this card!!

Your second card made me laugh too! Those wheel eyes are so crazy and your are right, this is the craziest of the crazy birds that I've ever seen! :) Perfect sentiment! Thanks for playing along with us at Twofer Card Challenge! xx

Oh Bonnie what fabulous cards - love the motorbike "doing a wheelie"... reminds me of a party in the neighbourhood the other weekend. The bird is amazing - love, love, love it!

Brenda in IN said...

You did a wonderful job on both of these cards. The grandson's card shows the motorcycle actually roaring across the card. He is going to love this one. Those eyes are a hoot! So fun and perfect for a crazy bird. Very clever thinking on both cards. Great faux stitched border and a fun sentiment.

Nstiz said...

Now this is clever! Love how you showed motion with the motorcycle and love the wheels on the crazy bird eyes! Both of these are so fun! These are so creative, Bonnie! They both made me smile.

Faith A at Daffodil Cards said...

Both are awesome, love the "speed" details on the motorbike and the wonderful bird.

Carole said...

These are both fabulous Bonnie. Love how you got the movement in the first card...clever...and the use of the wheels for eyes on the bird...really made me smile...another clever use. Brilliant imagination and design!

Sandy said...

Weird is also a side effect of TOO MUCH COFFEE!

Susan said...

What a brilliant idea to use the wheel to stamp eyes for the owl! I would never have thought of that! The repeat stamping on the motorcycle card gives a great sense of movement! Two fabulous masculine cards!

JD/ Jill said...

Wow! You aced this challenge! So cute and clever!

Leslie Miller said...

Oh, my GOSH! I was looking at your two cards in the thumbnail at Twofer and it took me a minute to realize where the wheels were on your bird card. Hahahahahahahahahaha! I just about spewed! I love a good laugh. The sentiment is great! Fabulous movement on your birthday card. A real treat, Bonnie. Thanks so much for playing with us at Twofer!

Karen Dunbrook said...

how fun and very super creative I must say....well done.
xx Karen

Jeanne H said...

Your cards are both great, Bonnie!!

Love the sense of motion of the motorcycle. And who would ever think--wheels for eyes. Perfect for that bird image.

Jo said...

Vroooom, that bike is racing fast with the second hand stamping. Yellow gives it that punch to make a statement. Your birdie card with the wheel eyes does have a dizziness I truly love. Two great cards and two very different designs, BRAVO! xx

oldpunca said...

What a fantastic twofer! I like the effect with multiple stamping of motorcycle by the first card and wheels eyes on the second one. :-) Sentiment is the best!
Have a nice day,

Rosmarie said...

Fantastic Twofer, Bonnie! You really nailed the challenge!

HilaryJane said...

These cards are brilliant. who would have thought to use the wheels to make those crazy eyes. I just love both these cards xx

Bobby said...

That motorcycle in motion is fantastic, Bonnie, but those eyes. What a brilliant idea!

TK said...

Googly eyes! Love them on your fun bird! Great use of the wheel from your bicycle!

Verna Angerhofer said...

I had to giggle when I saw the eyes of that bird. That was a great way to use the wheels. I think your Twofers have winning quality.

LesLee said...

So cute and creative... I love them both... the technique and results.

Mac Mable said...

Many congratulations Bonnie on the well deserved Honourable mention with these two fun and creative cards x.

TK said...

Congrats on HM at Twofer! These really are two awesome cards!

Cath Wilson said...

So sorry I missed this - I rarely miss a post of yours but my online and crafting time is very limited at the moment (sciatica) so I'm not 'getting around' as much as usual.

Just spott4ed your honourable mention on Twofer challenges and all I can say is wow! This is absolutely brilliant - pure genius. What an imagination you have ;-) Wonderful.
