A Spirelli Thanks A Latte

A new fun technique, Spirelli,
well, not new,
but a new one for me!
So easy too!

I used a metallic gold thread that I have had forever.
Hope somebody still carries it, I may run out now that I see how fun this is.
And note to self, "order some more circle nesties".

Best of Cluck! Best of Cluck!

It's been awhile since I've posted but my computer decided it have given all it could and decided to retire. Just wish it had sent me a letter of resignation ahead of time - then I wouldn't have lost of all my pics and documents! A new Dell on my desk and still trying to get use to all the new streamline of Windows 7 and Office 2010. Boy, do I feel old!

The above card is for the following challenges:
365 Cards, Day 247 - Take a part of one image, combine it with another and create a whole new image. Not quite sure this is what Pam had in mind but it sure is a fun card!
Challenge Up Your Life - Friendship
Our Creative Corner - Masculine with non-traditional colors
Raise the Bar - NO embellishments
The Cuttlebug Spot - Anything Goes
Let's Ink It Up - Favorite technique (embedded dry embossing)
Order of the Opus Gluei - What's On Your Head

I seriously tried to add embellishments to this card. Just didn't look right. The textured embossing seem to be just enough. I like the CAS look of it.

Thanks for stopping by after my forced vacation from the blogging world!
