You. Me. Oui.

I almost did not make the Midweek ThrowDown at OWH this week (twine and tags)! Here it is Saturday...and I am just getting to my card! It was a hectic week...lots going on so it felt good to sit down and make a card. My mojo is a little lacking-or maybe my I went to one of my easy to color images- the Penny Black ducks. I know- I just used it- but these cuties were already stamped, and were looking lonely on my very messy dining room table. I struggled with the twine part of the challenge- I wanted to try something different- but what? Ahhh, those ducks were stamped on a Lifestyle Crafts die with holes....doh! So I simply threaded the twine thru the holes! My tag is also from LC. I have a few of their dies and I am very happy with them- they cut nicely and some have the ejection foam onthe intricate cuts and the paper does not get stuck in the die.   My sentiment is from Mama Elephant- love their stamps! Super fast shipping!  Fun blog as well!

I did find time to hop along with OWH first this am for the Spring Training Blog Hop featuring masculine cards! I needed a kick start for my manly cards! Silly me- I was hoping for a few cards with a baseball theme (my nephew plays in MLB minors!) but I was thrilled with so many cards! It was great to see so many companies support OWH and our military! Go check it out...some sites have fun videos...I love watching someone make a card- start to finish!
Have a wonderful week! I hope to have some mojo flowing for Sunday's OWH sketch!
Craft on!

  1. Diane, I'm so glad you didn't give u on the midweek throw down! Your creative use of twine is fantastic! I don't know about you, but the re and white twine on a white circle evoke baseballs for me! See, your challenge has a subliminal to it! Thanks for playing along with this week's challenge!


I appreciate your comments and feedback on my posts! Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
