January Trendy Twine Challenge

Hello everyone!  I hope your new year is off to a great start.  I am back at work today, and I think it will be a long week.  Wish I could say that I crafted a lot over my break, but I didn't.  Just relaxed, a lot!

I'm here today with the January Trendy Twine Challenge.  We are showcasing a newer color, Watermelon Taffy.  I LOVE this combo!  But I do love most anything if it has pink :)

Here are the challenge rules for this month.

I did flip one of the mittens on my Gypsy so that the thumbs were not facing the same way.  And I filled in the snowflakes and zig zag with the Stickles.
