TLC431 String It Up!!


Hello everyone....I hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend!!!! We had company yesterday so today has been quiet. Tomorrow George is going to BBQ some bratwurst and I will make a big salad with goodies from out garden. George even brought home a ripe tomato today and the peaches will be ready next week....yummmm!!!! Anyway....on with the show!!

It's my turn to host the Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast and my challenge  is to *String it Up*!!
You can string sequins, buttons, beads, stars, flowers, or anything else as long as they are connected with string, twine, cording, wire, thread, floss, or ribbon!!!

For my sample, I used the boy fishing stamp from  Flourishes Kids at Play set. It was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black on a piece of white card stock that was brayered with Pool Party, Summer Sun, and a hint of Pumpkin Pie was sponged on under the tree. The sentiment is from the same set and the Happy Father's Day sentiment is from Taylored Expressions Boys Will be Boys set. I used a piece of black twine to string on the buttons. I started at one end and ran the twine through the holes and then added another button. When the last button was strung on, I clipped off the ends and adhered the string of buttons to the card with glue dots. This is a Father's Day card for one of my sons.

Thanks for stopping by....I hope you will join us the this weeks TLC challenge on Splitcoast...I can't think of a better way to spend a day off!!!

Ps.... My chubby fingers accidentally hit the question mark instead of the exclamation point. I am so sorry, because certainly there is no question. It's a great card!
