Sentimental Gift

Just another old library card randomly grabbed... lo': there's a name I recognize as my husband's co-worker's son!

As usual,  I try to pass these cards back to the people who would appreciate them... with a little crafty love added! (Hey, man!-- it's what I do...)

Anyway,  I plan to enter this little tag into the following challenges:

Supplies & notes:
  • Library card base aged with Distress Stains in Vintage Photo Aged Bronze 
  • The edges are embossed with thick-ish Elmer's Craft Bond and Ranger EP in Princess Gold 
  • Twine from stash with Liquid Leaf in classic gold wiped on here and there
  • A Tim Holtz Ideaology pin that says "Ideas"... get it?: I paired it with a tiny antique light bulb, wired on (light bulb... idea... haha...) I wonder if the recipients will notice


  1. Ohhhhh Mimi! What an awesome way to repurpose a library card! Love it! Thanks for doing the scratchy Gollum voice, glad I am not the only one that thought that LOL
