LIM - string or twine

This week's challenge at  Less is More is a recipe challenge and we have been asked to create a card using string or twine. I have a lot of twine, all different colors of twine, I just love the stuff.  Here's my card:

I used a Kaisercarft stamp, a Hero Arts sentiment stamp, some watercolor pencils and some pretty purple twine.  Oh yes, I also put a little stickles on the flowers but it's hard to see in this photo.
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the day :)

Tuesday Trigger - Apache Tears

The Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World this week is called "Apache Tears".  I had never heard of chevrons being referred to as Apache tears before.  When I mentioned this to my husband, he told me the name came about during the 1800's when the calvery patrols came out west to engage in war with the Apaches; the calvery patrols wore chevrons on their uniforms.
Although somewhat disturbing (sad tears, not happy tears), I learned something new today.  I guess I need to read more Louis La Amore.  Anyway, here is the inspiration photo for the Tuesday Trigger:

And here is my card.  I chose to change the pattern from chevrons to squares staying as close to the color pallate as I could: 
The squares are from a Bo Bunny geometric patterns stamp set and the sentiment and butterflies are Stampin Up.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Now hop on over to the book store and get a Louis La Amore book.  I'll be taking one from Mike's book stash and will start it later today :)
