My friend Laurie of Soapbox Creations and I decided that since we like to make cards so much and we are both bad about sending them, we would challenge each other to send at least one out a week! So this card is made with that purpose in mind. And, we are doing a VERY mini blog hop together today to showcase our first cards (and we just happened to use the same sentiment)!
This card is for a special friend of mine who is always such an encouragement to everyone around her. It is so wonderful to hear how the Lord is using her both in her personal life and in her work life. People are just so attracted to her because she is such a loving and warm person.
Recently I found this wonderful, bright colored twine by the Twinery that I fell in love with!! And, the colors match PTI colors so well!! See that one that matches Hawaiian Shores? SWOON!!! :) (hint, hint, if you like, it, I bought a bunch and might consider cutting some up and adding it to my Etsy store at a great price. Are you interested?)
I punched holes in the tree branch, knotted the twine and slipped it through the holes. Isn't that sentiment wonderful!! Oh my how I do love it!!
Here's one last one to show you the dimension a little better:
