It's two different events and they're supposed to expire automatically
on a date and then the next one jumps in. So they're basically
independent, the two images.

That would help with one image, but again I think the real issue is
the overlap. The bottom right of the top must allow for visibility of
top right of bottom and conversely the top left of the bottom must
allow visibility of the bottom left of the top one.

If each was transparent in that area, then it would work. I think.

I could always tell them that it might be easier to adjust the design too. :)
