Dad's Birthday Card 2012

 I went straight to my bin of patterned paper scraps for the printed background piece.  It is amazing what treasures I find in that bin!  I then added a star punch, some Doodlebug word stickers for the sentiment, ribbon, twine and brads.  I inked the edges of the gray piece for contrast against the white paper.  This layout is simple-dee-dimple.  I like simple sometimes!
Here is a closer look.  To keep the twine in place, I put down a thin strip of Scor-Tape and simply taped the ends behind the gray layer.  It is a nice alternative to always having the tied ends showing on the front of the card.

I have a few more cards to show from October.  I haven't taken pictures lately of everything I've created, but hope to showcase a few more things like layouts and holiday cards soon.  Sometimes I am in a rush to get it in the mailbox and don't have time.

Hope all is well with your and yours.  Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, by the way...I have changed the way the comments appear on my blog.  I have been getting spam posts lately and have now decided to moderate all comments before they appear below a post.  I do NOT like spammers!  I simply love my crafty friends' comments only.
