  1. Both cards are amazing. Love the way you've used the die's and the stencilling on your first card. The green looks fabulous against the crisp white.
    Fantastic stamping and layout on the second card with amazing and gorgeous colours. Love how you've used the die cut leaf in totally different ways and for totally different occasions. Fabulous inspiration....Thank you x

  2. It's so wonderful to have you as our Guest Designer this month! Your cards are both stunning! Love the stenciled background on your CAS sympathy card! And the Father's day card is gorgeous with the combination of stamped and die cut leaves! Adore how one leave goes over the edge! Also admiring the beautiful insides of your cards!

  3. What a lovely twofer, Susan ... the fresh greens against the white on white textured background are lovely ... a delicate and understated design, perfect for a sympathy card. Those autumn leaves on your second card are so rich and vibrant ... the variation in colour adds such a great sense of dimension ... and what a great touch having the skeleton leaf hanging off the edge. Love how you took your designs to the inside of your cards! Thanks so much for inspiring our players as our Guest Designer this month at Twofer! Anita :)

  4. A wonderful twofer, Susan! Such a lovely cluster for your sympathy card, with a wonderful background design. Those fall colored leaves are drop-jaw gorgeous! Thanks so much for guest designing for the Twofer Card Challenge this month!

  5. Your Twofer's are just stunning Susan! I love your embossing paste background in your first card, the stack of leaves are so pretty on top of it. Love the twine bow as well for that "rustic" touch. Your second card is so pretty with the fall leaves background. I love that you popped up that one leave and I love the "lacy" leaf as well. Both cards are so beautiful outside as well as inside! Hugs, Brenda

  6. Your cards are sensational, Sue! I love how you meticulously finish the insides of each card, too! Maple leaves are my absolute favorite, so I really adore both your beautifully colored designs!! Thank you for being our Guest Designer this month!! Hugs, Darnell

  7. Congrats on your Guest Designer spot, Susan! Just love your colorful leaves, especially the open line one. So pretty on the sympathy card with the texture behind and the yummy Father's Day card!!

  8. Two gorgeous cards Sue!! LOVE the gathering of green leaves with the twine. The colours are so bright and fresh on your amazing background. The embossing paste leaves are so pretty and add a lovely background with lots of texture and dimension, but subtle with the white-on-white!

    Your Father's Day card is a beauty with the lovely fall colours. Another beautiful design. Thanks so much for being our Guest Designer this month at Twofer Card Challenge! xx

  9. Two fabulous cards, Sue! Love the simple green leaf bouquet with the stenciled background! Wonderful depth and texture! And your colorful Fall leaves look so realistic with the beautiful blending of colors! Congratulations on your win at Twofer, my friend! Love that new picture too!

  10. Your Twofers are absolutely fantastic. I love the way you used the leaf for the sympathy card. I shall have to remember that in the future.

  11. Hi Sue,
