Here's my card that I call "Casual Friday". Please tell me that I am not the only one that nicknames my cards. LOL!

I began with a pocket from an old pair of blue jeans that I had saved. You know, in case it came in handy someday. :) I wrapped the pocket multiple times in Maraschino Solid twine (such a luscious deep red)  and attached it to the card using large glue dots. I then stamped "And I Think to Myself" (I dare you to use this stamp without singing or at least humming the song. Go head, try, it's impossible!) on white cardstock with Memento Nautical Blue ink. The font on this stamp just makes me happy! I cut out the sentiment with Nestabilities and attached it using Midnight Blue Stripe twine. A little heart button embellished with the same twine finished the card.

Thanks for visiting me today! Jennifer Cuthbertson is your next stop on the hop. Have fun and be sure to leave your comments! Remember to visit the Serendipity Stamps and The Twinery blogs for complete details.
