'Welcome' Twin Boys

I was recently asked by a good friend and neighbour, if I could make two
identical 'Welcome' cards for his twin nephews.
His sister and her husband have adopted identical twin boys
who are just eight months old and they became their parents yesterday.
Mark asked if I could make something with a jungle theme, and this is what I came up with.
The animal stamps I used were a free gift on a craft magazine,
and I found a tutorial on them on CRaFTi PoTeNTiAL YouTube channel HERE
which I 'cased'
For those of my crafty friends who know me well, stamping is not something I do very often,
apart from stamping a sentiment! I have to say with the help of my Misti,
I produced these two cards quite easily and which I am really pleased with.
I even added a bit of free hand drawing!

There were 20 stamps and a jungle embossing folder in this fabulous free gift.
I have a feeling I will be using them again.
The products I have used are:-
Die-Namics- Pierced Rectangles
Safari Friends stamps - Free gift with Papercraft Essentials Issue no. 145
Sentiment - Computer generated

Challenges entered:-
City Crafter Challenge - Something beginning with 'S' (stamps)

Just us Girls - Something Old or New (New stamps)
