Let's Hear It For Bacon

Okay, I can truly say that I have lost my marbles !! I see card-making supplies everywhere.... In the doilies underneath my decaf coffee mug at a local restaurant, in the wooden stirrers and coffee info cards at Starbucks, in advertisements I receive in the mail--- just to name a few... But this one tops it all !! My boyfriend made breakfast yesterday for me and when I looked at the turkey bacon on the plate, all I could see was a lovely scalloped border..

So I made a card using the cutest piece of turkey bacon...Finally broke into my stash of Melissa Frances "Kitschy Kitchen" paper for the background and used a red Paper Bouquet border at the card bottom. An older Inkadinkado sentiment was just perfect and I finished it off with a cup from the Stampin' Up Perfect Blend set.. A wooden stirrer from my Starbucks latte was placed in the cup and topped off with a glittery heart !!

So, tell me what is the oddest thing you have ever used on a project ?? I know that I can't be the only one who sees craft supplies EVERYWHERE !!

Thank you so much for visiting Meticulosity and the first blog post of my 2nd year.. I hope you will continue to visit me as I follow the path on my creative journey..And I hope that I didn't scare you away by playing with my food...

P.S. I did take the real piece of bacon off the card.. I actually made a photocopy of the bacon, cut it out and it looks exactly like the real thing on my card !!
