i am grateful for you

I am grateful for you.

Well yes, you, too. But this card was made for my husband. Sure, I tell my husband regularly how awesome I know he is, but there's something about taking the time to write it down and letting a person read your grateful thoughts that makes it official. And memorable.

Hello and welcome to this fun blog hop event with The Twinery and CardMaker magazine. We've teamed up to present tons of card making inspiration using  baker's twine...I know, fun right? And if you've arrived here from the blog of

I know you were excited to see all the sneak peeks you found there!

If you haven't already, you may want to begin the blog hop with CardMaker magazine so you don't miss out on tons of great cards and inspiration along the way.

I've worked outside the box here on what one might consider traditional Fall color combinations, but after I wrapped by card with the Gold Shimmer baker's twine, I felt it needed a pop. So, diving into my basket full of twine goodness, I chose the Solid Denim twine. It seems to ground the shimmer twine and draw your eye in toward the "one in a million" message.

Grateful for You Card with Gold Shimmer Baker's Twine | I Love It All

I kinda love the way my threaded mini tag turned out. That was totally last minute and I think it's the  my most favorite part of the card design. But then I am a fan of using your own handwriting in projects, it seems to lend authenticity and a real "handmade with love" touch!

Want to win some Gold Shimmer baker's twine of your own? And Solid Mandarin, Copper Shimmer and Solid Maraschino? Just leave a comment below and on every other blog participating for even more chances to win.
