***This is my 2nd post today.  To see my Lil' Inker Designs Release post, please scroll down!***

Hello!  Welcome to another fun challenge from The Twinery!  This time the challenge is to create a project with an "x" in it.

X Marks Spot 1

When I thought of using an "x", I decided to make something that could be a love or Valentine's Day card.  I first found two round flair O's to begin the card with.  Flair seems to be all the rage right now, so finding exactly what you want shouldn't be too hard. I happened to find these at Walmart. I positioned the two O's where I wanted them on the card stock panel and then sketched out the X's with a pencil.  I then used a slot punch to punch the slots where the twine would form the letter and threaded the twine through each hole 4 times. For my card I used Blossom, Maraschino & Charcoal twine.

You could use this same technique to spell out a lot of different words!  

I hope you'll play along in this fun challenge! We'd love to see how you interpret it!  As always, there are great prizes that you can win just for playing along!  You can link up your card on The Twinery blog.

Thanks for stopping by today!
