Fun Card with Twine and Wobbles

It's 'Twine Day' at Getting Cricky and I am so honored and excited to share a project I made a couple days ago.  This project just cracks me up when ever I look at it.  If you haven't seen the new twine at K. Andrew Designs, you should pop over and take a look.  I absolutely LOVE it.  I've not only used it in my paper crafting, but in my baking.  It is the perfect thing for tying up 'food gifts'.  Now, on with my project.

My grandest daughter and I were being 'crafty girls' a few days ago.  It was much too hot and we were sitting in the nice cool studio, which is in our basement.  For some reason, she kept asking for soda, which she knows I don't allow her to have. Even though it is sugar free - the caffeine makes her WOUND!  For whatever reason, I found myself letting her have some - but just a small cup.
Even the small cup got her bouncing off the walls - and we both laughed that it would be the only cup of soda she ever got from me.

The result of this shared experience is the following card!

I used K. Andrew Designs new line of twine, to wrap up the white layer of this card - to signify how 'wound' up Lexi gets on sugar/caffeine.  Then we put this little piggy and her cup, a new file at Paper Piecings By Nikki, on an action wobble!   I stamped the cup with a sentiment from K. Andrew Designs, new 'southern sayings' stamp collection.   I absolutely  love this card.  

I took pictures of Lexi crafting with me, and I will use this card on a scrapbook page with those pictures.  I'll journal inside for a private message to her....and one day when she's older, perhaps she will remember the day and how we laughed at my little 'soda piggy'.

Here's a look at the 'southern sayings' stamp set:
