CardMaker & The Twinery Hop

Hey, hello & Hi.....
Welcome to the CardMaker & The Twinery Blog Hop.

You should have arrived here from Melyssa Connolly's blog. If not, click on over to the CardMaker Magazine Blog to get started.

How about spools of thread....

A faux watercolor background, and stamped greeting.

Added a threaded needle for fun!

Did I mention there will be prizes ?
The Twinery will be offering 4 spools of twine - Solid Mandarin, Gold Shimmer, Copper Shimmer, and Solid Maraschino. ($60 retail value)
You must comment on each stop of the Hop for an entry!

..... or some Fall Twine Leaves?

Background is spritzed, plus a stamped greeting.

Our twine is made from 100% cotton (and some of our twine is twisted with gorgeous metallic string!) and made in the USA. Whether you're gift wrapping, crafting or tying up baked goods to give to a friend, our baker's twine adds a fresh, yet nostalgic look to any project at hand! Our baker's twine comes in an assorted array of delicious colors and is uniquely twisted against a bright white hue, creating an eye-popping burst of color and a creative embellishment! Our twine has lots of color which lends to a fun, candy-striped look.
