TGIF!!!  Hoping you all survived the week and are gearing up for a fabulous weekend!

Our friends just had a set of twins, and since the twin birth of my daughters almost 6 years ago, we've had many friends come home with a set ;)  It's always so much fun to find out that your friends are part of this special club, as we like to call it, and I was super charged at the thought of making a twin card!! 

Unfortunately, I found, like most everything out there, a lot of images/stamps cater to having just one baby.  I've found a couple pertaining to twins, but nothing that particularly sparked any interest which is how I came up with the idea of merging two images together (which seems to be one of my favorite techniques at the mo).

The sock monkies are actually two separate images from Bugaboo Stamps called Sock Monkey Boy and Sock Monkey Girl Love.  I merged both images in PrintArtist along with this fabulous sentiment from TLC.  There are some other really cute twin-geared sentiments included in Paulette's set called Twins (this one included), which you can find in her store by clicking here.  I'm really over the moon about it!

Enjoy the weekend!
