Take Two

Hi there

Well I've had a great day today.  Each year at work we have an International Food Day where staff get into teams and bring along their ethnic food.  'Team Kiwi' went for something a bit different today - we did a leg of lamb cooked on the BBQ - it was SO nice.  I think everyone enjoyed it as there were no leftovers.  We had food from India, China, Korea, Philippines, Sri Lanka, North America, Pacific Islands (hope I haven't missed anyone off the list).  The only down side was were we all so full it was hard to keep awake this afternoon!

Now on with the cards.  A couple of weeks ago Narelle and I taught this card we'd seen on Pintrest (not sure who the original creator was).  I really liked this and decided to put my own spin on it.  I don't own the Alphabet die so looked through my stamps to see what else would work and came up with the below two designs.  They worked perfectly for the class I took last night as it gave the ladies two options to choose from.  I also gave them a choice of colours of Bakers Twine.



On the original card we had used a circle underneath the button but I decided to use the 7/8" scallop circle to keep with the scalloped edge of the doily and the trim at the bottom.  I always like to have a card that can be used for multiple purposes just by changing the sentiment. I'm sure you're going to see some more of these - I may try changing the embossing folder.

 I think I like the 'Love' one - which one do you prefer?
