The Prizes:
The Twinery is giving away 4 fabulous spools of twine - perfect for fall projects:

The Projects:
In my neck of the woods, we seem to have gone swiftly through fall and straight on to winter, but I still enjoyed creating a couple of fall cards for today's hop.
I've been having fun with watercolor paints recently and decided to give it a go on this Fall Greetings card:
After I added the stamped/watercolor flower panel and stamped the sentiment, I finished off my card with some of The Twinery's Solid Cappuccino twine. 

The second card I created is simple - just a bit of embossing, a little stamping, and some twine:
For this card, I kept the palette very simple by finishing it off with some of The Twinery's Solid Honeydew twine
The Twinery's twine is the perfect accent for cards - it ties everything together perfectly. (Literally.)

Thanks for stopping by today!
