Hi Everybody , Today is my first official post designing for The Twinery. I am so excited!! I have made two Christmas projects. Shall we get started. 

 I have made a Christmas cracker with matching card. There are tons of things you can put in a cracker for a gift. Or just to put on your Christmas table for decoration filled with little toys and jokes.. I have used 2 colors of twine on my projects Maraschino Red and white and Peapod Green and white. This twine just adds that bit of pizzaz to your projects.
 My Cracker
My card

My second project are some place setting cards for My Christmas table. I just loved these when I picked them up at the store and now that I have added Maraschino Red White Twine they Look Fabulous..I know I know you can see me and my kitchen in the refection but I could not help it I tried everything but oh well just try to look past that :)

Well that is it for me today. Make sure you check out The Twinery and look at all the great colors they have to add that little something to your projects :)
