Twine in the limelight...


Last week I stumbled upon a new-to-me site Limelight Papercrafts. Always on the look-out for new card sketches, I happily joined in. There was a sketch to use as well as the prompt: String.

After just getting my latest The Twinery happy mail, I was eager to jump into this prompt using my new colors.


This card is also for the Card Makin' Mamas challenge to make a birthday card.

While we are on the topic of baker's twine ... I thought I'd also share this cute little home decor project I made this weekend. I used little wooden spools from the wooden crafts aisle at the craft & hobby store, along with some cool empty jars I had on hand.


I have wooden spools, cool jars and jars with notions like this all over my house tucked onto various shelves. I just think it's the best way to add a splash of color. I used a Papertrey Ink die and stamps to make the little tag.


Thanks for stopping by today to celebrate baker's twine with me! :) I hope your week is going well!!
