Happy Cyber Monday!!

I hope everyone had a super Thanksgiving! I did! Great times with family and friends, way too much good food, and definitely too much wine! Just ask mom!! ;) So how many of you have finished your Christmas shopping?? If so, I'm jealous! I haven't even started yet! *sigh* One of these years I'll get to Black Friday shop! Haha!

Anyway, it's Monday so there's another challenge posted over at Paper Therapy. This week's challenge was to create a project with a button and a bow. I kinda stretched the rules and used a knot instead of a bow! ;) I'm not good at tying bows and I DID get permission from the "boss" Kristin, sooo.... Anyway, here's the card that I came up with.

It's called a criss-cross card. I found the instructions online and attempted my first one at the retreat I went to in October. I love 'em! They're so cute and so easy to make!! Let's see what you can come up with. A card, a layout, an altered item...anything with a button and bow (or a knot!) ;) Post it over in the challenge thread and you can be this week's winner! Hope everyone has a super week!

A criss cross card is super cute!! I have not seen these before, but I like yours and the design is fun and hip!! I totally think that your twine knot is still a "bow!" It's just another type of bow, and it's always good to have variety!! Liking the clean style that you have going on!

You did a great job with the criss cross card! The warm color scheme is great for fall.
I agree with Emily. It's a knot bow. Who says a bow has to have loops? :) (I'm not good at tying bows, either.)
