Twofer Card Challenge #3

Hello and Welcome!

THANK YOU for your incredible participation in last month's challenge! You are inspiring lots of design ideas with your cards and your cleverness is exciting to see!

This month we are all getting winter-weary and we need some fresh flower blossoms to remind us that spring will be here soon! For those of you in the Southern Hemisphere who are summer-weary, feel free to make fall blossoms your focus pocus!

Twofer Card Challenge Rules
  • Use the monthly PROMPT on both cards.
  • Use the EXACT same stamp or die in some form on both cards.
  • Make two distinctly DIFFERENT DESIGNS.
  • Make your cards for two DIFFERENT OCCASIONS.*
  • Link ONE PHOTO of both cards here AND on any social media.
  • IF you post on social media, use the FULL NAME #twofercardchallenge.
  • FOLLOW this blog.
  • NO BACKLINKS, which means your post date/time must be after the challenge date/time.
  • Please SUPPORT the Design Team and your fellow players by leaving some encouragement below and on other gallery entries. 
  • Please READ the Frequently Asked Questions under the FAQ tab above for helpful additional information.
  • Have FUN!
*Don't forget this one! If there is no sentiment on your card front, or it is in a language other than English, or the sentiment does not conform to the list in the side bar, please explain what the occasion is in your post. Thank you!

Guest Designer

This month we are delighted to present the winner of our January challenge as our first Guest Designer. Please give a warm welcome to Verna Angerhofer of VA's Creative Clutter
Here is Verna's creative take on the challenge!
Do you see how Verna has used the same flower blossom stamp on both her different designs? She has used the blossom stamp to decorate the Easter eggs and make the grass! Very inventive and unexpected! Thank you, Verna! 

Design Team

We hope you will be inspired by the example creations from your Design Team! You can find detailed information about their designs on their individual blogs and we hope you can visit. 
The challenge is open until 11:55 PM (PST) March 24th.
The winner and the Honorable Mentions will be posted 
at 12:00 AM (PST) March 30th.

The Winner will have the opportunity to be a future Guest Designer!

Great inspiration from you and the rest of the DT for this blossoms challenge Darnell, and congratulations to your GD Verna who came up with a very clever alternative way of using that pretty flower with Easter on the horizon. I will have to get my thinking cap on. x

Congratulations to Verna being guest designer and coming up with such fabulous and clever designs! Same goes for all the DT designs too! Must get thinking! xxx

Mac Mable said...

Sorry my photo looks cropped but can't fit my two cards properly on the link photo...hope this is still OK? x

Darnell said...

Your photo is fine, Mac! This rule is strictly for the convenience of the Design Team. Be assured, we do not just look at the gallery photos! At least two or more members of the DT visit each entry to see the individual photos of the cards and read about the process. Having two photos in one card is helpful to the DT at the end of the challenge when it is time to choose the winners. Sometimes it is several days since the blog was visited and with a lot of entries, it helps the DT see at a glance that two cards were made. This helps us narrow down our choices for winners and after that, we again visit those blogs to confirm our choices. Thank you for playing! Hugs, Darnell

Darlene said...

Oh Magoo You've Done it Again! LOL What a fun theme and the team has done an amazing job with all their fabulous inspiration! Congrats to Verna for being Guest Designer (so well deserved) and Darnell ... you always make me think outside of the box ... thanks for that!! I will be sharing my projects later in the week but in the meantime I'm lovin' all the amazing ideas you are all sharing! WELL DONE!!!

What a perfect prompt for the month that ushers in spring. Thanks for another set of wonderfully inspiring DT cards. Glad to have a chance to play along. :)

Julia Dunnit said...

I feel like Di...your designers have inspiration way beyond me! However, your blog said that the two cards didn't have to show amazing clever alternative uses for the images, so I've taken you at your word! And, as usual, really happy that you've pushed me to make two - so nice to have a 'blank for your own special message' type card in stock!
