Twofer Card Challenge #18

Hello and Welcome!
THANK YOU for your amazing entries in last month's challenge! We appreciate your enthusiasm and support and love to see how you interpret the prompt and stretch your stamps, stencils, dies, and design skills! 

This month our challenge prompt is:
Feel free to interpret the prompt however it inspires you to make two different designs for two different occasions! As you can see from the lovely inspiration cards, garden can be flowers or veggies or anything you might see in a garden, whether at home, on the farm, or in a nursery.

You are welcome to make two conventional designs or a combination of one conventional and one unconventional design. Every month we will have a conventional challenge winner. We will also have an unconventional challenge winner if there are any unconventional designs.

Guest Designers

This month we have the conventional winner from our May challenge as our Guest Designer. Please welcome Kathy Asper (My Asperations) with her beautiful Twofer GARDEN cards. Thank you, Kathy!
And we have the unconventional winner from our May challenge as our second Guest Designer. Please welcome Robyn Oliver (Waterlily Cards by Robyn) with her beautiful Twofer GARDEN cards. Thank you, Robyn.
Please visit each of our Guest Designer's individual blogs for details on their cards and to leave them some love!

Design Team

Before we get to the Team inspiration cards, we have an announcement. Loll is stepping down as a Designer due to her many other commitments, although happily, she has agreed to stay on the Team as Blog Administrator. Thank you for doing that, Lolly, and for inspiring our readers for a year and a half with your talent and your creativity!

As folks on design teams know, these changes are a bit like a roller coaster ride. While we are sad to see Loll leave her position as a Designer, we are delighted to announce that the very talented Cat Craig will be joining us! Welcome, Cat!
Hi! I am Cat Craig and I really do Love Paper! I live in Maryland having transplanted from California after getting married and retiring. 
I was never much of a crafter until a dear friend introduced me to scrapbooking in 2006. That began my love affair with paper, textures, and color. After another friend introduced me to card making I was hooked. YES, it was the heat embossing ... magic! I began playing in one monthly card challenge hosted on Flickr and eventually started my blog Cat Luvs Paper.
I love all kinds of techniques and card styles. My favorite technique is coloring, whether it is markers, pencils, or paints. Whenever my mojo wanes, I look to a card challenge to rev it up again.
I am an avid reader of political and spy thrillers. I enjoy action movies and comedies. I am a football fan, both at the collegiate level and the NFL. Few cards are made on the weekends during football season!
I am a firm believer in the restorative power of the occasional day spent lazing in bed. Some of my favorite conversations are with my husband at three o'clock in the morning.
I am thrilled and honored to be invited to join the talented Design Team at Darnell's fabulous Twofer Card Challenge.

We hope you will also be inspired by the example creations from the Design Team! You can find the details on all these inspirational Twofers on the Designer's individual blogs. We hope you'll take a closer look!
The Winner(s) will have the opportunity to be a future Guest Designer!
