And the prize to be won from The Twinery is a Striped Twine Sampler ($65 retail value):

And now on to the projects I created for the hop: two cards using Pretty Little Studio's "Silly Monkey" collection and some awesome twine from The Twinery:

For this card I used some "Red Shimmer" twine. I don't know if you can see it very well, but it has a little bit of glitter in the red thread. It's a 100% plush cotton twine & metallic string twist ... It's really beautiful!!

Apart from the twine at the top of my card, I also adhered it around the red dotted paper. Love the result:

And for the second card I used some Maraschino Solid twine:
