Because You're Special ... and Have Some Vintage Bakery Twine to Share

Pin It

Hey, there you are! Allow me to be the first to wish you a happy "White Tee-Shirt Day." Well, it's also "Don't Cry Over Spilt Milk Day" ... go on, pick one and move on.

Today's card project was the result of me finally cleaning up my work table ... hence, there's l'il bits and pieces of every card I made in the last few days consolidated in this one. Almost like left-overs ... without the heartburn ... sorta.

I ran some dark navy blue card stock through the 'Bug in the "Birds and Swirls" embossing folder, and ran a scrap of "Riding Hood Red" card stock through my paper crimper.

I stamped my cute l'il sentiment stamp with "Riding Hood Red" dye ink on SU card stock, trimmed it closely, then mounted it on dimensionals. I added some vintage bakery twine, an SU double-ended swirl clip, some red Crystal Pearls, three cream-colored eyelets and finis! Easy-peasy!

So, those of you who talk to me regularly know that we've been having all kinds of Internet and cable issues for the last week or so. We've tried everything to fix it ... the DH personally examined every square inch of wire in our home. Nada.

We called Service and scheduled an appointment, but when they finally arrived, everything worked just fine. Go figger ...

As soon as they left, of course, everything went back to normal: nothing worked.

This time, I decided to make the call. So, naturally, within seconds I'm on 'hold' ... and heard this message: "We apologize for the inconvenience and realize that you are still holding. Please do not hang up, as this will further delay your call." It's no wonder nothin' works ...

PS: As for the vintage bakery twine ... does anyone have any that they're willing to part with? I'm almost out and NEED more ...

Stampers Dream sells the twine in different colors they call it burlap, you get 10 yards for like $1.50 or something cheap like that.

The whole card is just so pretty! I love what you did with the sprial clip and the twine. Also the knot too! Know what you mean about internet service. I was sick of the poor service I got from one so I signed up with TW and now I get poor service from them. I say it's a matter of choice.
