Challenge Title: Two Times the Fun
Hostess: stagccva, a/k/a Taylor
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'd like to extend a hug of thanks to my sample makers, PH in VA (Patricia) and Cook22 (Sabrina). You girls make me so happy, and made fantastic samples!
Thank you so much for participating in this card drive!
This was a challenge for me! I used
2 stamps- Hero Art's Cookie stamp and SU's Little Somethings set- with:
2 kinds of images- words and objects (cookies),
2 designer papers- sea green and chocolate brown
2 backgrounds (white and hint of brown in upper right corner),
2 inks for both lettering (black and brown) and coloring of cookies (brown and gold)
2 embroidery flosses wound around my bow
2 ribbons- one a bow and one a tie.
2 "oo" style cookies 2 cookie images- one a striped cookie, and one chocolate chip without stripes.
Here is Cookie Day
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
Here's my list of items:
2 images (hedgehog on motorcycle, bear)
2 background colors- white and dark red
2 ink colors- green and black
2 ribbons- black and red
2 primary colors for images- brown and red
2 part sentiment
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
