CELEBRATE Your Love of Twine Blog Hop

Hi everyone! I am so excited to be partnering with The Twinery and Imaginisce for this super fun blog hop!!!

The Twinery sent us all their newest colors to create and play with and trust me, I've been using it on anything and everything (just take a peek at any of my recent projects in my previous posts)!

For today's hop, I pulled out my Imaginisce Animal Crackers collection and my i-top to create this fun little birthday card.

To make the card, I simply adhered pattern paper to the bottom half of the card, large enough for my little alligator die-cut to pop off of. Then I used my i-top 2.0 and made birthday "balloon" using the small (16mm) and medium (22mm) brad daddies. Before attaching them to the card, I tied the twine to the brad points in the back to keep the twine in place. Then I attached them to the card and added a bit more twine to ensure they looked like balloons. I tied the twine around the gators tail. Lastly, I fussy cut the banner from the animal crackers paper, added some whimsy twine and added a "celebrate" sentiment. Oh and I HAD to add a bit if glam to the bottom with my i-rock/glam rocks. Now I just need someone to have a birthday!!!


Now, on to the rest of the hop...the hop will continue all week and we'll be showcasing members from each of the talented teams all week and of course, there will be prizes to be won!!
