Free as a Bird for Twofer

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

It's time for a new challenge at Twofer.

I chose these fun birds from Jane's Doodles.

They're like potato can't do just one!


I had this card front that I'd die cut when a friend came to visit.

It was perfect for two of the Copic colored birds with a small aperture for a sentiment.

It will either go for a thank you or just a uplifting card for someone.

I used a NBUS stencil to add a bit of interest to the background.


This bright and happy friend was colored with Zigs.


Another colored with Zigs.

I could go on and on with these fun birdies but it's time to move along
to something else.

I do love birds and can't wait to see what you come up with.
Just remember to make two different designs for two different occasions.

Twofer - Birds
NBUS - Never Before Used Schtuff


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Your threefer's are so cute and fun Bonnie! I love the sun rays on the first one, the three holes for the birds and sentiment to sit in is perfect. Love the way you colored these cuties too. The next two cards are so bright and cheery for sure! All three cards are sure to bring a smile to anyone's face! I can see why these little guys are like potato chips. lol Hugs, Brenda

Love your Threefer adorable, cute, colorful birdies cards, Bonnie. Your circle apertures were the perfect size for your cute birdies and sentiment. Love the slimline design. What a fun time you had playing with your cute birdies. TFS my friend. Love and Hugs...Nancy

I completely understand you, Bonnie. These cute birds will not let you go back to the drawer :-) I love all your cards presented in this post, they are so joyful and fabulously colorful.

These are the happiest looking birds I've ever seen. The slimline card is a cute way to show them in their bright colors enjoying the sun rays. Those next two are so colorful and cheerful I can hear them chirping.

I almost got this set, Bon, but I mean, I had to ask myself if five hummer sets was enough, lol. You might make me change my mind, however, as I can see how these sweetie pies are like potato chips! Each one of your Threefers is as colorful, textured, and delightful as the one before! Thank you for sharing with everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Dolly

Pat said...

Wow Bonnie, you were so inspired by these beautiful birds and love the different coloured birds and also the pretty sunray stencilling on the first and then the two different embossed backgrounds to go with with the other two brilliantly coloured birds. x

Bobby said...

Your colorful little birds are the cutest, Bonnie. I love them peeking out from the ray stenciled apertures or on their own with a colorful border. I'm so glad I have a bird stamp with me so I can participate. Wish I'd brought the hummingbirds.

Susan said...

Love your pretty little birds!! Great slimline design on the first with the birds in the circular openings. Especially like the second one with the textured base panel and the leafy branches hanging below the image.

Fun and fabulous cards Bonnie - love the cheerful colours and cute birds - I can see how they can be addictive
Stay safe

Marcia Hill said...

Awwwwww...such sweet little birdies Bonnie...I can see why you love coloring them so much!! LOVE your slimline card with the birds (and sentiment) poking through the apertures and the beautifully stenciled sunlight in the background too! And your two white on white cards with the little birds being the pop of color are both just as sweet as can be my friend. Lovely, lovely cards!! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend! Hugs. :0)

A threefer Twofer! And each is absolutely wonderful! I love all those brightly colored birdies you've used on these cards. That sunshiny stencil, those sweet branches, and those little blings all add such nice extra interest to your cards, Bonnie. These just make me smile. What awesome birds. What awesome cards. Love 'em all! Take care. Bev

All three of your cards are adorable Bonnie. That is such a fun set! And it lends itself to making some very colourful birds. xx
