Let's Scrap Blog Hop/Candy Winner!

Hello and welcome to your next stop in the








If you came here from the oh so talented Dawn Tavela  http://www.scrapmyworld-dawn.blogspot.com/  If not, please start at the beginning with my buddy, my pal, my sweetheart Mindi Brown  http://scrapchat-n-coffeetalk.blogspot.com/       


I am so excited to be a blog host for such a fun and huge blog hop! Let's Scrap is my cyber home.  These gals are some of the most supportive, friendly people you will ever find on the internet.  I am so happy to have the chance to introduce them to you!
Here is the sketch I am showcasing for the hop
 I was so excited when I saw that this was my card!  I have loved this card ever since Debby D. first posted it to Let's Scrap and how often do we get to use eyelets anymore?  I remember when I first started going to crops, I would hear all of this banging of people tapping their eyelets into place and then they came up with the Big Bite and it got quiet again.
Here is my example

Well, I tried to make a heart...hum...maybe you can do a better job? So I used Cricut Sweethearts Cartridge Page 72 to cut the heart (it cut the holes that I put the purple twine through) I then tried to draw a heart with my pencil on the back of the heart and place the eyelets in a heart shape and then run the red & white twine through.

Now for the fun part! Here is the blog candy am offering!

    My card can be found here - http://letsscrap.ning.com/photo/leap40-1?context=user
    I was too lazy to do eyelets so cut little bits of paper and used them for the dots on the already lined pattern paper... how to get the same effect with no effort!

  49. One of my favorite cards that i made for the leap. Loved the eyelets and threading the twine. It looked a bit empty so I tied ribbon onto the twine.
