First I want to say "Thank You" to my mom for giving birth to me 65 years ago today. I can honestly say she's my best friend! Dad passed 25 yrs ago, but I'm thankful to God that I still have my mom.
Second in line is the Sketch Challenge over at Operation Write Home's blog, Stars & Stamps. We're up to #143 already! I have candy so read the entire post. Tonic Studios is sponsoring this week's sketch. On the sample cards Tonic Studios punches were used to create the stripes. I'm sad to say I don't own any of their product so I improvised. Here is the sketch we are to follow:
For the inside I punched a 1 3/4" circle of of the red and embossed the sentiment in white embossing powder. It looked kind of blah... so I put a strip of tape across the bottom and added an extra little sentiment. I used some baker's twine to make the hanger and bow.
If it looks like the twine goes through the crease in the card... it's because it does! I used my piercing tool to poke a hole in the crease and ran my twine through it. On the inside I taped the end behind the sentiment circle. On the front I covered the end with the bow. Just a little finishing touch so there are no stubbly ends. :)
Earlier in my post I mentioned candy. I feel very blessed, and since it's my birthday I'm offering some goodies to one lucky person who leaves a comment on this post. You'll have 1 week, until midnight EST Monday, October 29, 2012. I'll draw a random lucky winner on Tuesday, the 30th. Please make sure you leave me a way of getting in touch with you, or check back here next Tuesday for the winner.
As always, thank you so much for stopping by; hope you enjoyed your visit!
