It's a two-fer **Updated**

I know, that's not a word and if my beloved reads this he will be sure to point it out to me. Sometimes a title needs to be a little different though and I already used two for one on a previous post. Hence the "two-fer". My DF can not stand when people say a "couple of times". He says, there's a word for that, "twice." Doesn't this make you want to meet him? LOL! He's a really sweet guy. I swear! :-)

Okay on to the card I made. It's a "twofer" because I made it for the Caardvarks challenge to use a verse or quote and for Digiments first release party.

Cardstock: Bazzill red; pattern paper: Memories Complete Beach II, chipboard: Making Memories; ribbon: Basic Grey; stick pins: Making Memories; rhinestones: Darice; punch: Fiskar's Threading Water

The sentiment is from Digiments. Yesterday, I had an announcement on my blog a long with a project I shared as part of the design team. I am addicted to the verses and phrases because they are so diverse and make quick cards. The blog has incredible examples that you must check out! There are cards, gift sets, and altered home decor pieces that you will gasp at.

The next card is a two-fer because it uses the sketch from ICS and the recipe from Use It:

Part of the Use It challenge was to make your own border, embellishment, etc. I made this scallop edge for the inside of the card. Also, I created the flourishes with a single stamp by inverting the stamp image. Hope that makes sense.

Cardstock: Bazzill and Wausau; pattern papers: Making Memories Sabrina; stamps: Amy Butler; ink: Staz-on black; ribbon: Lil Davis pink; jewels: Darice pink

My last card is for a wedding Simon and I are attending next week. I used the CPS #115 sketch:

Cardstock: Wausau white, Bazzill black; pattern papers, ribbon,and flowers: Making Memories Sabrina; stamp: Amy Butler; tulle and pearl strand: Jo-Ann's

That's it! All I have. Thank you for coming by to view. :-)



Oh my WOW! This is stunning! I love the polka dots and your embellishment is perfection!

Amy, I love your projects with Digiments. I couldn't find an email link on your blog but Alma referred me to you to ask a question. I really liked her teacher poem/frame and was trying to find one for autism? Can you email me at impressyourself@tx.rr.com. Thanks, Kim.


Perfect sentiment!


I love the color combination - it really pops out at you!


Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I'm enjoying my visit to your place. The digiments are very cool! I may have to give that a whirl!
