Two-Fer Challenge

Today on Twitter, one of my tweeps and I were going back and forth quoting from old commercials. You know, like "Chock Full O'Nuts is a Heavenly Coffee" and "Dove is 1/4 cleansing cream" and "twoallbeefpattiesspecialsaucelettucecheesepicklesoniononasesameseedbun". We have very philosophical discussions on Twitter.

So tonight, while I was getting into creative mode for this loooooong weekend, I decided to do a two-fer challenge - two challenges on one card, and my brain went to "It's two, two, two mints in one!" and "Double your pleasure, double your fun" with the Twiggy-skinny twins for Doublemint gum. Uh-huh.

Here's my card:

and it should satisfy these two challenges: (1) 4 Crafty Chicks asked us to use Melon Mambo (that IS TOO Melon Mambo, even though it looks red), Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz, and (2) Moxie Fab World asked us to use a Chevron in an innovative way.

WAIT a minute - I may or may not have used Wild Wasabi instead of Pear Pizzazz. RATS. Okay, I guess this is only going to be for the Chevron challenge, then. :(

I wasn't all that innovative with my chevrons, but I thought I was innovative in calling my rick-rack die a "chevron", so I totally get points for that.

In other news, I have big plans to catch up on some challenges this weekend, so look for some crafty goodness coming your way.

Thanks for stopping by!
