Two, Two, Two Times The Fun!

CAS-ual Fridays and Market Street Stamps have teamed up for a special 2 week challenge with 2 ways to play. Create a CAS card using twine and kraft over at CAS-ual Fridays and/or create a card using a Market Street Stamp image over at Market Street Stamps. They even provided a free digital image to use in case you want to play but don't have any of their images. Although I do have a couple of their background images, I did choose to use the free image because it is so cute! Hop on over and play along!

I needed to make a bunch of thank you notes for the kids to send out for all the goodies they received for Christmas. This is 4 x 4 note card. After the first 3, I simplified this design a bit for the sake of speeding things up. I had 18 cards to make and was running out of time. My kids appreciate the smaller sized cards when it comes to writing. lol

I used the A Bit Of Burlap background stamp and the free digital image, both from Market Street Stamps, for this card. I used brown Martha Stewart bakers twine to stitch parts of the image.

The inside-


  1. I love your retirement card soo much!!! You have used this digi image perfectly! Thanks so much for coming to the Block Party at MSS!

  2. Both these cards are just super. I particularly like the retirement card with the handstitching and brilliant sentiment!

  3. Mary Jo, these are great. Your Christmas thanks made me smile, and then the retirement card widened my smile. I love it! :-)

  4. LOVE this, Mary Jo!! The creative use of twines and stitching is brilliant! So glad that you play with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  5. These are just adorable! Thanks for playing at CAS-ual Fridays!
