Twofer Card Challenge #4 Winners!

Hello!

It's time to announce our Winner and Honorable Mentions for Twofer Card Challenge #4! Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and your sensational card designs! I can tell you that we had a difficult time choosing our favorites because you all did a wonderful job with the PETS prompt! Thank you so much!!

Congratulations to our April Winner!
Maria entered twice and both sets of Twofers were so creative, colorful, and fun. Every detail of all four designs was thoughtful and precisely executed. Maria's love of card-making and fun just radiates from each of her delightfully crafted cards!

Well done, Maria! Here is the Winner's Badge for you to proudly display on your blog!

Here are your fabulous Honorable Mentions!

Lee Ann's stenciled background is colorful and stunning behind the full-body images of both the Great Dane and the Chihuahua in her first card. For her second card, Lee Ann did an amazing job of masking and coloring her herd of welcoming neighbors! Stamping each of the Great Danes at varying heights is remarkably creative, as is popping the Chihuahua here and there!

Marcia's little dog looks so adorable on both designs. Her birthday card represents the gray all-over appearance of warm winter days when the snow turns to mud. You can see how filthy the little pup is from digging under the wood-grain embossed fence! Marcia's second card design is so sweet with the pretty sky opening behind the colorful pup as he lovingly donates his bones to the recipient! The long twine bow is a perfect finish!

Marina used a darling goldfish for her pet. Placing him in a large fish tank with all the necessary bright and colorful accouterments was delightful, but turning the fish tank into a shaker card with sequins at the bottom made the design genius! Marina kept her second design perfectly CAS as a little note card, but she gave it lots of personality with her coloring and shimmery bubbles!

Rosi really put a lot of work into her Christmas card using her pudgy cute cat and two of its friends. Creating the fun scene involved a lot of cutting and masking. Even the floor looks sensational! For her second card, Rosi managed to squeeze the same cute cat into a hot air balloon adorned with fussy-cut little fishes for lots of fun! Her coloring with different mediums on both designs is bright and sensational!

Jacquie presented two fun designs for the challenge with her pet chickens. Her first card replicates a hen house with the four openings cut from her woodgrain panel. Inside the openings, it appears two of the egg-layers don't quite know what to make of the Hip Chick and placing the sentiment in the fourth opening makes the design whimsical and balanced. For Jacquie's second card, you cannot help but giggle at the "girls," especially the one who stands out with her rainbow hair and rainbow stockings!

Congratulations to all you talented ladies!
Here is the Honorable Mention badge for you to display with pride!

We look forward to seeing more of your creative and awesome Twofer Card Challenge designs next month! The challenge will run from May 10, 2018 to May 24, 2018

Thank you again!! Mwah!
