CFC59: Round & Round and SSSC#162

The challenges this week at CAS-ual Fridays and Sweet Sunday Sketches happily overlap a little:

Here's the sketch:

The sponsor at CAS-ual Fridays is The Twinery; the challenge is to use TWO circles on your project.

I saw the following image on The Twinery website, around Father's Day: isn't it AWESOME?!

 I love the whole bacon idea because my sons follow a blog called "Epic Meal-time" where they create monster meals that almost always involve bacon and thousands of calories.  Anyway, I digress. All that to say, that many things inspired this card:

If bacon, why not eggs?  
I managed to include two circles (the plate and the egg yolk) and stuck to the sketch fairly closely, if you allow the fork to replace the flowers.
I punched out a one-inch circle and covered it with "Lemon-drop" twine. I free-hand cut the egg-white, outlined with "Flax" twine, and filled in with a fuzzy white fibre. I think the Twinery ought to include white twine in their inventory... Some "Canteloupe" twine wraps the card.
The fork was cut using "A Cuppa" template from Paper Wishes, from silver paper with some silver Perfect Pearls for added dimension. The DP (plate) is from Paper Wishes' "Soft Nostalgia" paper pack.
"Boing" alphabet stamps from CTMH, stamped in Juniper ink.

Off to visit Mr. Linky...
Happy creating!


  1. OMG!!! How creative! I love cute, made bacon look pretty!!! Love it, love it, love it! :)

  2. This is so cute! Love the your eggs! And the plate too!

  3. Wow! What cute and clever cards! You were so creative with your use of twine! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at CAS-ual Fridays!

  4. LOL, I love your place setting with the egg on the plate! So fabulous.

  5. Very very original cards and what great ways to use twine!

  6. Just want everyone to know that the BACON card was NOT my idea or creation--I don't want to take someone else's credit for that bit of brilliance . But it did inspire me to do the EGG.

  7. What fun cards! You are so creative! Thanks for playing along at CAS-ual Fridays!

  8. Love a sunny-side-up :) :) :)
    Caroline just to let you know the card I made was using watercolour paper - the Distressed inks are dye-based, and I added so much Glimmermist it couldn't help but pool LOL!
    Many thanks for stopping by :):):)

  9. Love the card Liner! You always seem to find great inspiration to build on!!


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts!
