Gina K's Design Team Challenge and Hop for August!

Hey Ya'll! Welcome to our monthly DT hop and challenge for Gina K Designs! If you have arrived from Donna Baker's Blog, then you are in the right spot!! If not make sure to head over to StampTV where you will find a list of all those participating in today's hop.

The name for this month's hop is Double Take....we had to use same stamps, papers, embellishments, etc...and make two different cards with those things. And let me tell ya...I really struggled with it for some unknown reason, lol! I was all whiny and figured I would have to just bow out....but I FINALLY got it done! LOL! Here are my creations...I like the first one, not crazy about the 2nd one though:



And the 2nd card:



Both insides have this:



At first I was thinking to do a CAS card and then one more loaded with stuff, but then it wouldnt have been using the same things...so that wouldnt have counted! Soooo, they are both very much alike, IMO, lol! And I believe we were to make two very different ones...oh well...ummm..oops? LOL!

Ok, next, head on over to the oh so talented Carolina Buchting's Blog and see what she has for you today!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderfully creative day!
