Happy Day!

I just want to share a card from the challenge at CREATE Blog (using baker's twines).I find myself using the twines a lot more in my projects. Late last year I ordered some baker's twine from The Twinery and I LOVE them so much! Here's my take for a card with twines. You can see it featured here.
 I stamped the kite image from The Stamps of Life onto the new Basic Grey Paper "Out of Print" and made a CAS card. The sentiment is from SRM Stickers.

 It was truly a Happy Day last Wednesday. Not only I found out about my win for the Moxie Fab Stamp It challenge and that the card will be published (!!), my daughter Stephanie also got the offer of a full-time position. She started out as part-time research assistant at the university here in May. That all happened on the SAME day! So this card is most appropriate in depicting my excitement that day! I will cherish it.

The "...did you know" feature is coming up next. Happy day!

This is super cute Virginia! Love how you used the twine. All my crafting supplies are packed away for my move this week--so I haven't been able to participate in many challenges (even though I have time now that it's summer break) :( I have to go check out all the other twine cards now!
