Being at home more often definitely has it benefits. I do get to craft a tad more than I used to, not a ton more, but some and I’ll take it. It allows me to design cards for the design teams that I am on, which is my favorite thing to create. This week’s sketch over at TGIF Challenges is fabulous and I was excited to give it a shot. The Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper is one of my favorites (fingers crossed it won’t retire) and I will continue to use it as long as I can. #tgifc259
Use a Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer to cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11. Score and fold at 5 1/2.

Adhere to the back of a 3 3/4 x 5 3/8 piece of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper with Snail Adhesive.
Double wrap with Linen Thread, securing with a bow on the left-hand side.

With a Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Marker, flick spots of ink onto the circles using the cap and the brush tip. Adhere as shown with Snail Adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals.
