Happy Wednesday!

Good Morning!

So how is everyone today? All I have to say is holy heartburn, LOL! We had some serious garlic last night and apparently it is still around. Why do I love it so much???

Well, I am going strong on getting caught up on my blogging ;) I did some cardmaking this weekend. I found on this card and a few other projects, when I kept tying the twine in a bow it felt a little lost. So I started to double it up and do kind of like a double bow (not sure if that is a technical term or not ;) So I thought I would take some photos of it. The patterned papers are from our sponsors over at Passionately Artistic, then I used my favorite Cuttlebug folder, and a SRM Sticker. I order mine from the FTLOA store here.

First, cut your twin twice as long as you normally would for your bow. And fold in half.


Now tie a bow...you will see it has an extra loop.


Just trim that third loop and you have a nice even bow. I do it this way because the ends are nice and lined it up for me. You can obviously double up the twin and not have it attached but it always moves around for me if it's not.


Voila!



Here is the finished Card....I used my Spellbinder's dies in the Cuttlebug as well.


Pearls are from Want2Scrap! love these little guys. they are so delicate!


Have a creative day!

As always...great work!!! Hate to hear about the garlic. Crazy thing about chemo is that EVERYTHING stays with me. I eat bananas mid-morning to chase away the early a.m. smoothie. A sandwich takes over for the banana mid-day. And so on and so on. Heartburn and belching are the norm. LOL! Hope the garlic leaves you soon! :-)
