OSAAT's Seeing Double Challenge

Another fabulous response to One Stitch At A Time's last weeks challenge! I'm beginning to think we need a top five, cos it's getting harder and harder to chose! This week's New Challenge over on OSAAT right now is...(a little tinkle on the old Joanna please Jim....)

Seeing Double!!
Now then, that doesn't been you have to rush off and finish off any left over wine first, it just means we simply we want to see two of some thing on your cards, well, at least that's what I think it means!
So, that's easy. I've done, two Giraffes, two panels, two lots of tiny hearts, two lots of Gingham papers, and a cuttlebug diecut square cut into quarters to make... um lots of corners.
So, here's my card. I've used two of Lexi's Creations found over in the Stitchy Bear Stamp Store, and don't forget there's a 'Bundle' Sale going on right now! (Bungle sale now finished)
This one's called Georgina Giraffe (although she's posing as George on my card today) I put her/him in my graphic programme (any simple one like My Craft Studio will do it too) and flipped her over to make two, identical twins!
I've used two slightly different sized blue Gingham papers (available as a freebie, the link is on my side bar) and as you can see by the picture, I've printed the Georgina 'twins' out twice as well, so I could do a little bit of paper piecing and 3D-ing. The extra shading was done using a Promaker pen.
The sentiment is a freebie, from a sheet of baby pictures, feet and words from Mad About Cards
I also couldn't make up my mind how to place the finished Giraffes and decided to fan them out a little bit, which actually lead to how I made the second card I did for this challenge.
The font is also a freebie, I've mentioned it before so you may already have it. It's called Walt Disney Script and is available here
Now then, where is the second card Lyn, you said two? Not here, it'll be here on another post in a little while cos my dinner's burning and the smoke alarms are going off!!
Poor hubby's not well (aw Bless) which is very rare so I'm cooking the Sunday Lunch. (he likes to live dangerously!!)
So, back later to add challenges and take out all the mistakes and wobbly bits!! Thanks for stopping by!
