  1. Another great idea! Thanks for blessing my day and congratulations for being featured on the LNS Blog Finds of the Day! 🙂

  2. OK, this is the best card ever! I love it!!


  3. For inquiring minds . . . I used a Windsor Knot . . . the type used for a regular man’s tie. Here’s a tutorial: The step by step instructions are better than the video (in my opinion). Hugs, M

  4. Amazing!!! Thankfully I have til September here to practice that gorgeous tie!! 😀

  5. Neat card–love the tie!

  6. Hi Mary
    Amazing Card, love the color combo. GREAT Job!!


  7. Love it! What a clever Father’s Day card. My dad loves getting ties as gifts and this will be a classy accompaniment.

  8. I hope you don’t mind to show us video how to make a tie. That’s really neat. Great card for men.

  9. This is such a cool card! It’s been so long since I tied a tie, it was a nice walk down memory lane! Gorgeous as always!


  10. Classy, Mary! Love it! Reminds me of the ZZ Top song…Every Girl’s Crazy ‘Bout a Sharp Dressed Man!

  11. Chris R. from Iowa

    Mary, you are amazing – this is too much fun! I had to laugh though – the circles on the left – the one grouping resembles a giant paw print. With one of my dogs at #130 pounds I thought that it could be from Murphy, our dog! I love reading the comments about the card as well. Great job! Now, to have some more fun checking out your other pals. Then, I will be back tonight to place an order. Thanks for brightening my day!

  12. So cute! Love it and love the color scheme!!

  13. Just what I needed for 2 son-in-laws! Thanks for sharing your creativity…you’re the best. MJ

  14. Mary, this is genius! Would you please be so kind as to do a video showing us how to tie a tie? (for those of us who never learned?) :o) Thanks so much for your daily inspiration!

  15. So dressy! I love the tie and the way you textured the shirt. Snazzy!

  16. Love the tie! Cute and Clever! I just love your blog!

  17. One of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals told me there was a tutorial in blog land on making an easy tie. I simply went the route of tying it just like a man’s tie. It took a couple tries (mostly because it’s been so long since I have tied one). The top ribbon is adhered to the bottom. Hugs, M

  18. Stephanie Daughtrey
