Burlap at JUGS!

Screen Shot 2015-01-18 at 1.05.14 PMHello Friends, Have we got an awesome Trend Challenge over at Just Us Girls, Ina had the brilliant idea to use burlap on our projects this week! Boy was this fun! I need to show you where my idea for this card came from…it is only the right thing to do.  I found this card on Pinterest probably a year or more ago and when I saw Ina’s challenge the idea hit me!  I got so excited! LOL  Here is the card!PTI-MIM7

  Isn’t it the coolest card you have ever laid eyes on?  I LOVE it!  Now here are a few of my details:  The flowers I used are from Stampin Up.  The DP is Who Knows?  The grass die is from Impression Obsession and the Thank You sentiment is from Verve.  I put a belly band around my basket which I think worked well so the twine wouldn’t get lost. Some inking, distressing, pop dots, twine, pearls, and some hot glue to hold my burlap together and I was done. It was a very quick card and so fabulous to boot!  Sorry for tooting my own horn…but someone has to right?

Now head on over to Just Us Girls and see what my team and our Guest Designer Stephanie has done with their burlap…and while your there you might as well join us!

I am also going to link this up over at Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge blog where it’s Anything Goes. Untitled

Take care and Happy Valentine’s Day!  I have a fun day planned!  I am meeting up with a fellow card maker that I met online, that is ohhhhh so sweet and funny!  I am super excited. Pics to follow!  Then later on who knows what Hubby and I will do, but as long as we are together that is all that matters!  DH thinks Valentine’s Day is a Hallmark day anyhoo.  So no flowers or diamonds for me! 😉
