Mom's Birthday

I wasn't planning on working in the beadroom today, cuz I had a doctor appt and planned on hitting a few stores- figured I would be too weak.  However, at breakfast, Dad asked me if I made a card for him to give Mom for her birthday...tomorrow.  I said nope, since I don't make things until you ask!  At least he did give me a day's notice, hey?

Today on SCS it is "use twine" for the challenge.  I thought it was great, since I keep telling myself I NEED baker's twine, lol, and the challenge should give me lots of ideas for using it.  

On the way home from St. Cloud, I thought of using my button stamp set and tying the button with hemp- since I don't have any twine, hemp is close enough!

Here is my card- I purchased the ribbon/pompom trim at Crafts just today.

I recently purchased an I-rock and gems using a gift card (thanks Andrew and Julie!) but couldn't get the gems to stick.  As the tool got hot, I thought there must be a problem with the gems.  And I am happy to report that I was right- I bought some more and they worked just fine. Luckily Imaginisce is already sending me replacements for what I purchased! They must not have had glue on the backs or something.

Simple card, as always.  :)  I love the heavily embellished cards I see online, but I just can't make them.   Or make them so they look nice anyways!  I think it is the lack of energy- I don't have enough to distress every layer and such...

Have a great day!
