Thinking of You

Hi everyone!!  This is a really fun week for us OCL girls, May Arts was very generous to us and sent us lots of fun, gorgeous ribbon and twine to play with!!!  A very special thanks to the folks at May Arts, I've had a blast playing!!  :)  As I was digging through my bag of goodies and I ran into this Twisted Burlap I thought it would be so much fun to use on a masculine card!!  I used this cute image from my Coastal Wishes set, then I thought it would be fun to tie some kind of knot to hopefully bring out the rope in the image!!  So I did a google search and found a fun knot that was easy to make and made three to go along side!  LOVE when ideas come to me like that!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today and be sure to check out the May Arts blog, they have lots and lots of gorgeous projects and tutorials!!!
