A Pair of Moons for The Twofer Challenge.

Hello everyone: Every time I post here on my little blog, I'm wishing for you and your families are doing well dealing with all the stressful issues we are facing every day but, I firmly believe change is coming and this means the healing will begin.  This will take some time, there's no doubt about that but, we must stand together and be patient and love each other through every step of this Journey.

I have another pair of Twofers to participate in one of my most favorite challenges, I had a blast in the process of making these cards.

This is my first card, I made it a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" square.
I sponged the night sky with Memento black ink, I didn't want a solid sky, I wanted to give a hint of a foggy night.
I used Prismacolor pencils to color my image.

This is the inside.

This is what I use to create the first card, inside and out.

Power Poppy "Feeling Fall" 
Martha Steward Witch Punch.
Spellbinders "Hemstitch Square dies.
Flourishes "Witching You a Happy Halloween" sentiment.
Ghosts, (stamped on Vellum and fussy cut), bat and tumb stone, and cat and pumpkin inside, from Kraftin' Kimmie.
The sentiment inside is from Inkadinkado.
Waffle Flower "Layering Marble" stamp set for the "Moon Craters"
DSP from my stash.
This is my Twofer.
I also sponged the night sky with Memento black ink, I made it a bit more dark than on the Halloween card.

This is the inside.

This is what I used to create my Twofer, inside and out.

Say it With Sunflowers.

Hello everyone: I hope all of you and your families are doing ok, I feel blessed that mine is fine, just hanging in there and trying to cope with all the stuff that keeps messing up things. I'm so very worried about my grandchildren who have started school, only one chose to stay home and do the work from home, at least for now.  I pray they will be safe and keep healthy, I miss them so much, we just communicate via texts and phone calls. 
We need to get a hold of our lives again, we need to start on the road to healing in every aspect of our lives, we can't go on living this way for much longer, change is badly needed, 4 more years of this chaos is a very scary thought.

SOS Headquarters

My favorite season of the year is Autumn, I just love everything about it, the colors, the cooler temperatures and the start of the Holiday Season.
I made this card for the new challenge over at SHOPPING OUR STASH, the theme is "Pile it On" so, I did my best to do just that, I'm not too good at layering, it's hard to mix and match papers and embellishments but,'s my card, let me know if it's layered enough, ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here's a look at the inside.
