A Springtime-y Polka-Dot-y Kind of Thank You

Happy Thursday!

It's happy indeed for my bestest crafty buddy is coming over today to help me make some baby shower decorations.  I plan to have my Silhouette Cameo a smokin'!  :)

And here's a card that I hope makes you happy!  It was inspired by Really Reasonable Ribbon's Spring Colors & Ribbon challenge HERE, as well as The Twinery's Let's Polka Dot Challenge HERE.

For my polka-dots, I punched out circles with a couple different sizes of circle punches and then ran them through my Xyron sticker machine so one side was all sticky.  I then wrapped twine around the sticky side.

My twine colors are Caribbean, Pea Pod and Lilac.

I swear I didn't see Jamie Cripps' card before I made mine.  I just went to the The Twinery blog to review the rules and saw her card.  :)  I guess great crafting minds think alike?! 

You have until 2/26 for RRR's challenge and 2/28 for The Twinery's challenge, so go get your craft on!

PS--Go check out my bestest crafty buddy's blog...she makes beautiful cards, among other things!
