Happy Friday! I hope you all have a fantastic weekend coming up. Today I would like to share with you a card that I made for a couple different challenges.

Die Cuttin Diva's--Favorite Pet

Paper Playtime--Pets and add a sentiment

Here is the card that I created for the challenge:



My favorite animal is a dog. We have a 100+ pound yellow lab and we are so lucky to have him in our life. He is a part of our family and he pretty much has us all wrapped around his paw hehe. He is spoiled rotten! For my card, I cut out my dog with the Doodlecharms cricut cartridge at 2". Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and take a look at my latest creation. I really appreciate it. I hope you have a great crafty day!

Trendy Twine Tuesday :)

Hello to all my crafty friends and Happy Valentine's Day! Today is also Trendy Twine Tuesday! Yay! Another Tuesday filled with inspiration using the yummiest twine around, Trendy Twine. Today I will be sharing a project with you that I made with the new yummy Chocolate Cupcake twine from Trendy Twine!



If you are a Kraft card stock lover like I am, this new Chocolate Cupcake twine is a must have! This cute little crayon box can be found on the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cricut cartridge. I cut my box out of Kraft card stock at 6.25". I stamped some hearts with some Chocolate Chip ink and then wrapped that gorgeous twine all around my box. I love how well that pink and brown twine goes with the Kraft card stock. Inside the box are 2 fun size M&M's packets. They fit perfectly. What a cute little Valentine gift this is and I think the twine really helped with the cuteness factor. :)

Thank so much for stopping by my blog today and taking a look at my latest creation! I really appreciate it! Don't forget to stop by the Trendy Twine blog to see what Kimberly came up with for this week as well. I hope you have a great crafty day!

Love Banner with Trendy Twine

Happy Tuesday! It is going to be another fabulous month featuring awesome Twine from Trendy Twine :)

This month we are showcasing the yummy Strawberry Cupcake twine. This twine is absolutely beautiful and goes so well with all those pink projects that you may be making for Valentines Day, not to mention any other time of the year. Who doesn't love pink right? I decided to make a Valentine's Day banner to hang in my house for the month of February. Here is what I created:



and a couple of close-ups:





I used Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge for my banner pieces and cut them each out at 6". I then cut out the frames from the Sophisticated Cricut Cartridge at 4.25". My letters are from the Storybook Cartridge and cut out at 2.5" each. Those cute little cupids are from the Sweethearts Cartridge and cut out at 2.25". After I had each piece put together, I ran some tulle through the top openings to connect them. I then threaded some of that yummy Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine through some little heart buttons across the top. The doilies are just regular doilies that you can find in the cake section of your craft store.

Don't forget to stop by the Trendy Twine Blog to see more inspiring projects from the Design Team!
