I'm in a Bind...

Today's 365 Cards challenge is "I'm in a Bind". The challenge was to bind two pieces of cardstock or something together to create your card. Before I go on, notice that I said TODAY'S challenge! Yay me!

Some have used lacing, brads, bind it all's, etc. I thought I'd try to create a couple of puzzle pieces and have them hold together two sides of a gatefolded card.

Stamps are Inkadinkado's - Inks are Versa Fine Brown, and Stampin' Up's Tempting Turquoise. DP is The Angel Company and Scraps that I'm not sure about!

This was really quick and easy - hope you like it!

Time for my bath and my bed - see you all on the flip flop!

Very clever! I won't be in the
girl cave for awhile either. We're painting our bedroom and kitchen. Only because I think we need to...is it too late to change my mind? HA

Hey now, what a cool technique, linking the gatefold together with the puzzle pieces. Very cool, Patti!

Okay, your old pal Lisa is behind in blog surfing and emailing again. Blame it on work. Ugh. But it's always such fun to get back on line and check in with friends.

Love and hugs,
Lisa
