Fresh Idea Friday....TWINE

Oh, my beautiful TWINE!!!
I love this stuff, can't get enough of it and can't stop using it. 
 I love that it comes in so many fun colors.
  I thought today it would be fun to look at a few fun, and unique ways to use this wonderful stuff.

First up, I used the purple twine to make a Frame around my images.
I felt it gave a perfect, home spun touch to this welcome home card.
Stamps are from House A Home!

Then I played with the same colors and came up with this easy and quick birthday tag.
A thin strip of glue and some Pea Pod twine and I had a sweet lil' stem for my flower.
Tie a bow to add some leaves.
Had to use How You Doin'? on this one.
You'll also see some Gurnsey Gingahm along the bottom.
Then in case you missed it on Monday's H{ippity} Hop
(our last challenge for March is to hand stitch on your cards
two more days to get your creations posted!!! )
Here's another look at some French Knots done up with a green strand from the twine. 
 Just cut a small piece of twine and pull apart the
1 strand you want and use that to stitch in some knots.
I then wrapped it around the sentiment layer
and fanned out the twine to create a few rays, just like the sunshine!
This set is Quotes à la Happy!

Thanks for stopping by today.
Hope you'll be inspired to use your twine in a unique way.
