Twofer Card Challenge #12

Hello! Welcome to 2019 and a new year of challenging Twofer prompts to get your mojo juices flowing as you stretch your stamps, stencils, dies, and improve your design skills! Thank you for your amazing entries in our November challenge! We appreciate your enthusiasm and support!

Before we get to this month's prompt, I want to let you know of a Design Team change. Effective this month, we say goodbye with sincere thanks to our teammate Susanne of Keep In Touch Cards. Susanne, we loved having you on the Team! Enjoy your break and come back and play with us soon!

And we happily welcome our newest teammate Leslie! Leslie has prepared a brief bio for you.
Hello, my name is Leslie Miller and I’m a stampaholic not looking for a cure. What a happy day it was when I was introduced to this craft! I love all styles of cards from clean and simple to heavily layered and dressed to the nines. Cute stamps, pretty stamps, all the delightful tools of the trade ... I can’t get enough and it claims more of my time than it probably should. Wait, what am I saying? I wish I had more time for it!
Even more than stamping, I love my family: hubby, grown son, and two Golden Retrievers. I enjoy the outdoors here on the southern Oregon coast and spend a lot of time gardening, exploring, and taking the dogs out to run. Then there’s reading, photography, long lunches with friends, and traveling in our motorhome. The list could go on and on. I’m busier than ever since retirement. Life is good!  
Now I’m looking forward to another adventure as part of Darnell’s Twofer Card Challenge Team.  You can find me making cards on Running With Scissors ... and enjoying the rest of life on Goldens and Garden. It's amazing the friendships that come from sharing a few common interests! 
If you get a few minutes, please let these ladies know how much you appreciate them!

So let's get this new year started! 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. You are welcome to make two conventional designs or one conventional and one unconventional design. Every month we will have a conventional challenge winner and, if there are any unconventional designs, we will also have an unconventional winner!
