Baker's Twine

Hello, Blog Buddies!



Today I'd like to show you two things -- first, the wonders of baker's twine. I love how baker's twine makes this card look like peppermint. I've seen many cards and other projects featuring baker's twine; I'd been looking around to buy some, and the most economical source I could find was via Etsy.

If any of my blog followers will drop me a line or post a comment here, I'll be happy to send you 5 yards of baker's twine just for the asking. You may send your USPS snail-mail address to me at www.cardmonkey at comcast dot net and I'll post some right away. Please specify if you'd like your twine (free!) in red/white, green/white, brown/white or blue/white.

I know we'll keep it lest we practically give it away, at that low price. But all of the lenses work just fine on my Nikon D80X ... yeah!



Second, I'm
