Twist that Twine!

It's Twine Week at BettyBee's Buzz, and I did two cards to play with it!

I am so thankful for my friend, Court's, video on how to do a spiral twist with twine, that she showed on Monday, on BettyBee's Buzz.  She showed how to cover a button, and it was so cool!  Here I have used the same technique on the sun, and it was really easy to do!  The little bunnies playing in the trees are from the Cricut "Give a Hoot" cartridge. I hand wrote the sentiment with my favorite Signo white pen.

This Tilda card is going out to a very special "Cupcake Designer" who is having a birthday next week!!! I can't tell you how old she will be, because it will make me feel too old!  (How is it possible that our kids get older than we are????)  I know she will see this before she gets it in the mail, but she won't know what is coming inside of it :) Happy Birthday, Tori! The embossing folder is from Sizzix, and the coloring is with Copics. The round sentiment is from Stampin' Up!.
  I've entered this one into a couple of challenges...
        JustMagnolia -  Embossing, Paper Piecing and Ribbon/Lace (I hope the twine will qualify)
        MagnoliaStampLovers - dies

On both of my cards I used gold flecked embroidery twine (or string) that comes on a short round tube.
I do hope you are having fun creating, and will leave a comment when you can!  Please pop over to BettyBee's Buzz, and check out the HoneyBee's creations, and if you can enter a twine project, you could be the winner of one of my very first new project kits!!  New and exciting info coming very soon!!!

Happy crafting ~
