You're not required to use an image from Birdie Brown. And your creation can be anything from cards, quilts, sewn items, paper crafts, paintings! ***Be sure to have ribbon, bakers twine, jute twine, lace, thread (basically anything that comes on a spool). *** Head over to the RCC blog for more challenge details!

Of course, I created a card for today!
