Tied Up



Did you know there are 40+ different ways to tie a knot? I mean a bow can get "old" after a while.

This actually "ties in" with the sentiment well. Tying a knot on your finger to help you remember to do something, and in that same fashion, the knot on the card pays homage to the sentiment "thinking of you"!




I am not sure what type my card has, but this is what happens when you "cut the rope" too short. Speaking of...do you know that game? Such a fun app!



Supplies all from i {heart} papers: 
Twine: Lawn Fawn
ink: Hero Arts
Tools: stamp-a-ma-jig

Entering this in Casual Fridays challenge using aqua green and orange. is 2 out of 3 good enough?? and the Wplus9 Monday Mood Board. I love the idea of a single image with a beautiful fonted sentiment...in ORANGE :)

  17. I never really thought of tying the knot in different ways. It's true I don't use them on my card because they do seem kinda "old" sometimes. What a great, simple idea to just tie it in another way! You're brilliant, Wida. Thanks so much for joining the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge, and so glad you're joining the team!
