kraftin kimmie thread challenge

TGIF everyone! I have this darn head cold so didn't think I would get a chance to do my kraftin kimmie for the week but love to participate in her challenges and really wanted to use my idea for this particular challenge. This week we are to use string or twine and I chose twine and this particular image called Natalie the knitter. You can buy all of the kraftin kimmie stamps at  I wanted to be able to wrap the twine around the spool to make it look like she was knitting with it. The paper is Cosmo Cricket "Material girl" and the roses are from recollections. The background brown layer is has a bit of a sheen to it and I thought it would work well with the off white in the papers. I was going to stitch on it also but since I am getting down to the wire I decided to forego that.

Short and sweet so I can rest a bit tonite and hopefully get busy again tomorrow. Enjoy your weekend everyone!
