Hello, is it me you're looking for? I can see it in your eyes...I can see it in your smile...

NOTE: Although The Twinery team is posting their projects today......Please be sure to visit the Clearsnap blog tomorrow, Saturday, May 5, to see what their designers created with our products.

Happy Friday, y'all! Today I have another fun cross-promotional event for you featuring products from:


AND


Fun, huh? Clearsnap Cat's Eyes were my very first ink pads when I started scrapbooking back in 2006, and they are still some of my favorites. I got a chance to play with a few new-to-me tools while creating this card, and I had a blast!

I started with a Colorbox Cat's Eye Queue and a Stylus with circle white foam tips. Immediately I saw polka dots! I smooshed the tips into the ink pad and "stamped" the circle image onto my white card panel, alternating colors between the orange and blue. Super easy and fun!

For the sentiment strip, I stamped the word "hello" from an adorable mini stamp set. I also added a butterfly stamped in light yellow ink, which I love on the Kraft cardstock. A closeup:


To finish off the sentiment panel, I tied three little bows of twine, one Cantaloupe and two Shore, which were perfect matches to the inks I chose. 

Now, you know this wouldn't be a proper party without a prize, right? How about some fabulous twine? The Colorful Bunch Sampler Pack is a $20 value, and oh, so purdy!


You can check out The Twinery Blog for details on how to win!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a fabulous weekend!
