  • OCCASIONS SNEAK PEEK:  Both the star and “make a wish” sentiment are from Perfect Pennants stamp set.
  • The “make a wish” sentiment comes to life using the 1/2″ circle punch and Bitty Banners Framelits for the real red banner.  Everything fit perfectly within the sentiment!

  3. Mary I love your take on the sketch. And, I love the western look that the bakers twine gives this card.

  4. Carol Carriveau

  10. I am inspired by the smallest things sometimes, and this time it’s the piece of Baker’s Twine. Do you realize how closely it resembles a lariat? My in-laws would love that little touch …. so I’m thinking about making some gift tags. If I have time! (Checking my punch inventory quickly …)

  11. Reminds me of “It’s a Wonderful Life”- I think they may have lassoed the moon, but the card is really adorable and brought back memories of that classic movie. Thanks for all your inspiration you have provided to me over the years! Merry Christmas to your family.
