Reminder ~ Twofer Card Challenge #41 ~ Dog/Cat

 Hello there!

Thank you for your amazing entries so far in this month's challenge! There is still time to play or play again! The challenge ~ which will be our last challenge ~ is open until 11:55 p.m. PST on August 24th.

This month our challenge prompt is is 🐶DOG/CAT🐱
Feel free to interpret the prompt however it inspires youbut remember to use the same stamp, stencil, or die for the prompt on two different designs for two different occasions

The easiest way to make sure you are creating two different designs is by simply making your first card. Then, for your second card design, move your prompt image and your sediment to different areas on the card front. Remember, the design of your card refers to the layout, not the style or technique you used. For examples and rules, please check the tabs at the top.

To further inspire you, Bonnie has made another pair of fantastic Twofer designs:
Please visit Bonnie's blog Stamping with Klass for all the details.

And because I love making critter cards and it's the last challenge, I wanted to make another set of Twofer designs, too!
You can find the details on my blog here

I've also decided to offer two fun prizes for this challenge:
The two prize winners will be chosen by random draw and only those who follow the rules will qualify. If you do NOT want to be in the running for one of these prizes, please let me know in a comment below. 

We hope to see you in the gallery and thank you if you have already played! Feel free to play again and thank you from me and the entire team for all the support you have given this challenge over the last four years!

Twofer Card Challenge #41 ~ Final Challenge

Hello and Welcome!

I hope this finds you and your families doing well and I hope our challenge will inspire you to play along, have some fun, and make two cards for two special someones!
This month our challenge prompt is 🐶DOG/CAT🐱
  • Feel free to interpret the prompt however it inspires you to make two different design layouts for two different occasions. There is more important information in the Rules, Definitions/Examples, and FAQ tabs above. You might also find this post to be helpful. Two different designs means not putting your prompt image and sentiment in the same place on both cards. 
  • Please remember that you must use the same stamp, as opposed to the same set of stamps. 
  • You may use digis or computer programs such as Silhouette or Cricit for any elements of your Twofer designs, except the prompt element.
  • You're welcome to make two conventional designs or a combination of one conventional and one unconventional design. 

Final Challenge

After much thought, I have decided that this month will be the last challenge for the Twofer Card Challenge. Between family health problems and priority changes, it's the best thing for me. I've had fun coming up with prompts each month and I've received so much inspiration from all of you who have played along. I know we have a lot of fans who will be disappointed and I'm sorry. I hope that you will continue on your own to stretch your design skills using the Twofer concept and I look forward to seeing what you make on your blogs.

I want to thank my Social Media Coordinator, Cat, and all my past and present Design Team members, with a big shout out to Anita and Bev and my Blog Administrator, Loll, who have been with me from the very beginning. All these ladies have worked very hard behind the scenes every month to inspire you and leave you some love and I couldn't have managed this challenge without them. 

I have to add that I went back to our very first challenge and I was overwhelmed again that 132 of you played along to show your support! It meant the world to me then and it still does. Thank you so much for playing the last four years. Mwah!

Now let's get inspired for this final challenge!
