Happy Thursday, everyone! Woohoo! I was so excited when Linda at Catered Crop posted that this card was one of her top choices last week! So this week, her challenge is to use twine! I’ve been using some twine here and there, but I wanted to step it up a bit for her challenge, so I pulled out my colors and went to work:
This card is for my foot doctor!!! I know, who sends their doctor a thank-you card, right? But I had been procrastinating about a little lump on the bottom of my right foot that was beginning to get really painful; I could not walk barefooted without a lot of discomfort. I imagined an operation, not being able to drive, etc; I was concerned, too, that I wouldn’t be able to chase Cassidy around!!! He took me in on a Saturday morning, examined my foot, told me it wasn’t serious, and removed that little lump (which was a callus), right there in the office, and now I can walk on it with NO PAIN!!! I am so thankful that it wasn’t more serious, and he had such a great bedside manner, I just wanted him to know how grateful I was!
The letters are from PTI and they are mounted on a piece of cardboard with various shades of twine wrapped around; the papers are some scraps I had laying around, and the layout is from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 181:
My original card used letters in Crumb Cake, but they didn’t really stand out, so I cut a second set from Chocolate Chip and mounted them offset, so it created a shadow effect:
Finally, I added “so, so much” at the bottom, which is a portion of a sentiment from Delightful Dozen. I really had fun with this card—I hope you’ll stop over and visit the Catered Crop! Linda has a terrific sense of humor and is a wonderfully creative stamper as well!
I had some place mats on the table from Easter, and Cassidy took it in her head that they would make a good blanket for Lambie:
A little mommy! Thanks for visiting today!
