Challenge Title: Two Times the Fun
Hostess: stagccva, a/k/a Taylor
Keyword: HYCCT1216
Date: Tuesday, October 16, 2012

Welcome to Day 16 of this year's Hope You Can Cling To challenges! We're glad to have you join us in this worthy cause; I'm thrilled to be hosting a challenge for the second year in a row.

When I think about breast cancer, and breast cancer awareness....I think doubles (for obvious reasons). My challenge to you today is to have TWO times the fun...with a little catch. Everything you use on your card, you have to use TWO of, but they must be slightly different. Two different patterned papers, two different buttons, two different ribbons, two different stamps (a stamp and a sentiment counts), etc.


TWO of each thing - no more, no less. Have fun seeing double!


You can see my card in the gallery, with details on the "twos" I used, HERE .

I assembled all of my "twos" before i started stamping...otherwise I would have gone completely overboard!

I succumbed to the pressure I put on myself, and did another card just like the first, except I added a second ribbon. Now I think I have everything correct on my card!!

I understand your "so close but yet so far" feeling.

I'd made my sample for the challenge and taken several photos of it so I could choose the best one for uploading...
and realized I had only one solid color cardstock.
So I carefully separated the card base from the rest of the card, added in the black mat, and reassembled the card. Then I had to go through the photography process again.

And it's funny, because between the time I'd first finished the card and the time I realized it needed another solid, I kept having the nagging feeling it was missing something. Duh! LOL

Here's the link to the card:

My foot is still causing me pain (since Sunday!) so I'm falling behind on challenges. Mostly I'm sitting in my recliner with my foot elevated.

But I knew right away that Taylor's challenge would be fun, and I kept thinking of different ways to use two things.

I went back and reread. I need to redo this one. I missed the word different. Mea cuppa.
