A Simple Saturday

Hello there!  I hope that you're having a wonderful weekend.  I'm doing absolutely nothing today, and it feels great.  I'm not even doing housework or laundry.  I've been lounging around, watching Lifetime Movie Network, and chatting with my son all day.  It's wonderful!
This is a card that I created a couple of months ago.  I had almost forgot about it completely, but reaized today that I hadn't posted it yet so I thought that I would go ahead and share it.   It was created with some of my favorites - Crate Paper products, a paper doily, a chipboard frame, some pearl stickers, a Melissa Frances rub-on sentiment, some vintage scotch tape, baker's twine wrapped around it, and a seam binding bow.
I just LOVE wrapping baker's twine around my cards, and making big fluffy bows made from beautiful seam binding.  Everything soft and sweet is right up my alley.  It's always fun to create a card using lots of favorite items, and that's what this card is.  It's not intended for anyone in particular, but I'm sure it will come in handy at some point.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenges - Simon Says "Wrap It Up" - I used some sweet yellow seam binding to wrap around my card.  Love it!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend!
