So I started trying to make Kristina Werner's card but I didn't wanna do the twine. I wanted shiny twine. I wanted silver. Since I was going to run into town, I made a little shopping list: Post-It tape (from Staples), silver cord, sequins, and a micron pen (because I've lost mine). $100 later, I made it back home. I went to Hobby Lobby first, where I spent about $60 on sequins, glitter paper, micron pens, Perfect Medium pens (because they didn't have Versamark pens), and I don't even know what else. Gosh I love that store.
Because I had three (!) gift cards, I went to Michael's and got an OTT light for my desk! It was on sale for $25 down from $80! Still did not find silver cord. Found some bling strips to use instead. Also got a stamp set for sympathy cards because, you know, I don't have enough stamps. And if you believe that, I have some ocean front property here in Kentucky to sell you! Seriously, I am selling my house and it is in Kentucky. And when it rains a lot, the corn field across the street floods. But I guess it's not "technically" an ocean... and "technically", you might say I have enough stamps. Must have ALL the stamps! LOL As long as I'm kicking, Simon Says Stamp will never go out of business.
So... my card. The reason I went for a "quick trip" into town for a "little" shopping. Here it is:
Kind of like Kristina's, and kind of not. And you know, I have red and white baker's twine. I could have made my card just like hers. But I didn't. Because then I couldn't have gone shopping.
