Less is More Pairs

I knew straight away when I read the Less is More Challenge this week for twos that these tweet little birds from Penny Black would be perfect. Generally I don't buy clear sets that often because of the size of the images but I just had to have these birds and I brought the set just for them.
I used the sentiment in the set too.

I saw this style of card from my Penny Black team-mate Helen and thought how fabulous it was. So I had a go with a stampin up tree and using chalk pad stamped directly to the paper twice. Quick and easy cards for Christmas thiat is till the chalk ink dried and turned from a green to a dirty yellow!

What beautiful cards Debby, I love trees and cards made with tree images, but those robins are so darn cute, I think they take my vote this time.
Thanks so much
