Twist of Faith Challenge "Ties That Bind"

Hey everybody,

Wishing all the Moms a very Happy Mother's day!  Hope you got lots of hugs and kisses from all your loved ones this past weekend.

Ties That Bind
 
This week we are sponsored by Meljen's Designs, who will be offering 4 images to our lucky winner.  To play along, we want you to use some twine in your creation and included a scripture, uplifting verse, or positive quote/words.
 
I had a hard time getting my mojo in gear this week, and nearly ran out of time on this one.  Although it didn't turn out like I had originally planned, I "think" I'm happy with it...hmmm still thinking on it.
 
I didn't do much coloring on this one, but what coloring I did do I used my Promarkers.  I attempted a little 3-D effect, and wrapped the twine around the spool and followed the already given sentiment.  The flowers, ribbons, beads, ric rac and lace (gathered for a ruffle effect) all came from my stash, and the paper was purchased at a thrift store.  I did use a new Martha Steward Butterfly Punch I got at a Michael's sale.
 
Thanks so much for taking the time out of your day and stopping by, and I hope you'll come join us this week.

Judy,
thanks so much for swinging by my blog! I do make wine glasses, wine bottle stoppers, wine glass charms, etc. I just finished a special order of a blue rose for a customer (on a wine glass). I have to add the picture to my blog. One of these days I will have a separate page with all these items on it. thanks for joining! I did the same.
