Good Monday Morning, Friends! Thank you for coming by today.
I hope that you enjoyed a lovely weekend.

This card was inspired by our little neighbors next door. Julia and Lauren are twins that are only 2 weeks older than Orla. They are really nice little girls and Orla LOVES to spend time with them.
These twins may share a birthdate....but the similarities stop there. One is very fair with very light blond hair and the other has rich walnut colored hair. One is very soft spoken and a little a shy and the other is...not. :) One is very girly, the other is more athletic. Despite their differences they obviously adore each other. It seems like it would be really nice to grow up with your best friend there all the time. And they are unique enough from each other (in personality and physical appearance) that it keeps people from thinking of them as one single unit.

To make this card, I simply flipped one digi image so that they were mirroring the first one. That is the really COOL thing about these digi images!! I can size them any size I like and flip them like that. EAZY-PEAZY!

Just a reminder that if you want to give Digi Images a try you can do so here.

Have a Magnificent Monday!

How adorable. I just started with pink cat's digi stamps and I love them. I am new to this, so could you possible post how you mirrored the image. My little girl and her best friend are exactly liked you described the twins. Mine is fair and blond and her friend is very dark. It would be so cute. Thanks so much. Sandy C. sczcec@yahoo.com
