The Twinery Valentine's Blog Celebration - Day 5!

Hi!  Today I'm taking part in the nine day "Be Our Valentine" Celebration over at The Twinery.  Every day from February 1st through February 8th the members of the Twinery Design Team will be bringing you Valentine Inspiration.  There's free printables, and tons of give aways so be sure to stop by The Twinery Blog daily to see what's new.   

Today the designers are featuring Valentine themed cards and scrapbook pages.  I thought I'd mix things up (for me) and create a card!  I know...it's rare!  Here's my Valentine's card:

It was really a simple card to put together.  I used mostly items from the Pink Paislee Secret Crush collection including the instaframe and tab.  The words in the frame were cut directly from one of the patterned papers.  A little stitching and done!
My favorite part of the card is my Celtic Heart Knot I tied using some Strawberry Twinery Twine.  I've used this knot before...I just love it.  I've tried to create a tutorial, but my video skills are limited.  I thought it best to send you to the source of my inspiration, Fusion Knots.  This is a fun site I discovered on Pinterest.  Here is their YouTube Video on how to create the knot:  Fusion Knots Tutorial.
Now for a giveaway!!!! Each day The Twinery will be giving away a prize. Today's prize is some cardstock and a Martha Stewart Punch! I am also giving away a prize to one lucky commenter on my blog this week... our largest Twine Sampler, The Rainbow Sampler Pack! This Sampler Pack contains 15 yards each of 22 colors, and is a $39 value!

To be entered in to win this prize you must do 2 things. First, you must follow my blog. Then, you must leave a comment on either this post or tomorrow's banner post letting me know you are a follower. All comments must be left by 11:59 pm on Friday, February 8th. I will select one random winner from both posts combined.

That's all for today, I'll be back tomorrow with a Valentine's inspired banner.  Be sure to check back over at The Twinery each day this week to see what inspiring projects the team has created! Thanks for stopping by and as always I appreciate your comments!
