My good friend Bev has just given birth to twins! In honour of this very special occasion, I am taking part in a blog hop organised by her design team over at the Uniko Studio blog. Bev knew she was having twin boys and when I found out, I just knew that this gorgeous little stamp would have to feature on her card! If Noah knew that things are better in twos, then who is to argue?! Plus it's an excuse to get colouring again, though I definitely need some more practice ;)

Crumb cake base and embossed layer (though that is hard to see from this photo), with a layer of Bashful Blue DSP in between. (I used bashful blue rather than soft sky so I had some co-ordinating ribbon!) The ark has been stamped in black Stazon on watercolour paper, then coloured using various inks and markers. I sponged a little blue ink round the edges to soften. The sentiment has been created using the Alphabet rotary stamp, and the words snipped out. The blue taffeta ribbon  has been adorned with, of course, 2 ribbon knots.

So welcome to the world Josh and Ben, and congratulations to Mr and Mrs Bev ;) on the safe arrival of your double bundle of joy. Can't wait to meet them - at least with twins, there will be no fighting over cuddles between me and Kerry !
