Twine It Up!!


Hello everyone!! Hope you had a great weekend and are ready for the week ahead!!! We didn't do a whole lot this weekend....I stamped a little and worked on taking my Christmas tree down. It takes forever to take down becuase most of the ornaments have individual boxes to be stored in. It's my own fault, I know....I have had some of the ornaments for over 35 years. I guess you could say they are a part of the family!!! Anyway...it's almost done for another year. My living room looks naked...LOL!!!

Now, about my card...it's my turn to host the TLC challenge on Splitcoast. I have noticed on lots of blogs and in the card magazines a lot of different ways to use twine. So, my challenge is to Twine it up!! Wrap twine around something for a solid look, use it to outline something, or  create a flower with it....just be creative and have fun!! You can use any kind of twine, thread, or cording...use what you have!!

For my card, Baker's Twine was wrapped around the heart from the adorable Cat's Meow Happy Owlentines Day image. Double sided tape was wrapped around the heart first before the twine was wrapped....the twine was started in the middle and wrapped toward the outside edge and repeated on the other side. The little owl was colored with copics and sewing and distressing were the finishing touches.

Thanks for dropping by...have a great day!!!!

Such a cute image Joan, and I love what you did with your heart balloon. A really sweet card:)

It's worth the effort to protect those special ornaments, Joan. They must bring back so many lovely memories each time you get them back out again x

This is great how you used the twine, loving that little owl delivering his message. Good luck with your tree, I am usually the one on 12/26 I am looking to get undecorated :)
