A Summer Hummer -- for Timeless Twine

June is winding down, but we're still using Firecracker Twine on the Timeless Twine blog and the June Color Challenge is still going on for another day. 

I love the new Bella Creationz June embellishment kit Stacy has made, and hope she has plans for many more!  
Here's what I created with it today:

Almost everything I used on this card is part of the embellishment kit -- designer paper, stamped images from the Hello Summer stamp set, journaling card, sequins, twine (of course!),  & ric rac.  The only things NOT part of the kit were the card base, a flat back pearl for the hummingbird's eye and the hummingbird die.  The paper I used to cut out the hummingbird was part of the kit.  The die is a Cheery Lynn die.
The twine I used on this card is Red, White, and Aqua Twine.

I have a giveaway going on, celebrating several events: I wrote my 500th blog post this week, I just reached 400 followers on my blog, and I have over 100 "likes" on my Facebook page, Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.  To celebrate all those things,  I'm having a giveaway:  I have some Timeless Twine, some 3 Girl JAM ribbon, a Unity stamp set, a Close To My Heart stamp set, some Pinque Peacock embellishments, a 6x6 paper pad, and various embellishments that I need a home for. I also have two generous sponsors:  DigiStamps4Joy is giving a $10 gift certificate to the store, and The Cutting Cafe is offering any 3 sets.  WOW! If you'd like to be eligible to win, please leave a comment on any of my blog posts between now and July 6.  I'll draw a winner on my birthday.  It's my day, and you get the present!  I'd also love it if you "like" my Facebook page and follow my blog, if you don't already. 
Enjoy the rest of June!
