Doubly Mice!

2 by 2 is the challenge at Craft Your Passion this week.So we’d like to see two of anything on your projects.We have the fab Ellephantastic as our sponsor too.For full details on how to join in the fun please hop on over to the challenge blog.Don’t forget to check out the  wonderful DT ans GDT’s work while you’re there.

I was so lucky to get to play with this adorable pair.They’re Marley & Charlie Cheese available from Ellephantastic.I’ve coloured the little cuties with Promarkers.I decided to make my first double twisted easel card as I thought it would be quite fitting for the challenge.It was suprisingly easy too.Of course once I’d made the stand up elements I made to make something to prop them up with.Because I’d used yellow in keeping with the cheese and gave it a Spring feel what better than daisies!Plus I used two layers of ribbon.So as you can see there are quite a few twos on my card!!
