Card Recognition

warm winter wishes


So I won a set of stamps from The Greeting Farm the other week through the Ribbon Carousel's challenge and so last night I decided to ink up my new set Tea-rrific.  I wanted to play along with their challenge blog as a thanks, the TGF Farm Fresh Challenge this week is buttons, twine and kraft.  My buttons are kinda hiding, but I used the PTI die to cut them out of the coordinating Cosmo Cricket paper I used.  And since the Ribbon Carousel's current challenge is twine I added some Twinery cappuccino twine to the card.  And lastly (challenge junkie over here), added some fun texture- both with a recycled coffee take out holder and the PTI impression plate for the Lawnscaping "Texture" challenge.  Thanks for looking... hope everyone else is surfing the pre-Christmas rush.


I took this photo last week while enjoying a cup of tea at work, and thought I'd include it here b/c I'm taking card photos at work again...  shows you that my time management skills are a bit off at the moment.  I took the photo for this blog post and now I'm realizing that I forgot to include it.... oops.  Well, you crafty folks can enjoy the photo :)

Materials: The Greeting Farm Tea-rrifc, Lawn Fawn Winter Fox sentiment, Spellbinders Labels One, PTI button die, PTI impression plate, Cosmo Cricket Odds and Ends patterned paper, Twinery cappuccino twine, Versafine black ink, Tim Holtz distress stain antique linen, PTI kraft card stock
