Play Date Cafe and Twine

(((If you are looking for my Sweet Stamp Shop giveaway post, scroll down, or click HERE)))

Hi there! I don't know about you - but I haven't had the greatest amount of time to craft lately. My oldest daughter had the flu last week...and of course, it was time for the second one to take over this week. So I am spending some time just being a mom right now! However, I did manage to sneak this in sometime between them both being sick...and since the challenge ends tonight, I thought I'd better get it posted!
This is for this weeks color story over at the Play Date Cafe:

I kept it pretty simple. My pattern paper is from an older My Mind's Eye paper pad.
I used a Fiskar's Edge punch for the notebook edge, then stamped an image and sentiment from the Unity February KOTM. Inked the edges with Antique Linen distress ink. 
Wrapped some twine around (the Twinery just happens to be the sponsor this week!), and attached with foam adhesive to the card base, which I inked with Vintage Photo distress ink.
Thanks for stopping by! Hopefully my family is back to good health soon, and I can get some things caught up! Have a great night!


  1. The twine looks so fabulous on your card... Loving those half pearls too! I'm so glad you took the time to play along with us at The Play Date Cafe. :)

  2. A great sentiment and image - love the way you added the twine to the card. So glad you could join us for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge!
