I am entering two Twinchies into the "Show us your Twinchies Challenge" -   The theme is 'Add a flower'.   I found this lovely blog and Twinchies are definitely my size - ie 2" x 2".  You probably all know about my procrastination trait - well I saw this last night and made two this morning!!!!  No scratching my head or thinking for hours and hours!  Yipee I love doing these.

I did both of the backgrounds slightly differently - the first one, entitled "Dreams" was made with DIs using my Cut n Dry foam then I stamped over the top in silhouette style with some of Sheena Douglass' stamps. I wanted to depict a flowery meadow with the bird (just going to fly to his nest for a kip) sitting in a tree in the moonlight.  A couple of pearls and little white stones finished off the top corners.

The second one was made using DIs again, but this time I used those big brushes to swirl the ink over the card.  I then stamped "Remember" at the bottom of the square and added some poppies and foliage to the middle.  I popped some little bits left over from a die cut onto the corners for interest.

I hope you like these, I feel they may become addictive. 

Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you may leave.  I am having so much fun!!!

Big hugs to you all.

  3. I like the birdie one but my favourite is definitely the poppies card. Pop it on a pin and wear it instead of a poppy on Remembrance Sunday.

  7. Hi Sue, I absolutely LOVE these twinchies, especially the poppy one, it's fab. Thank you for doing the 'link back' thingy. I smiled to myself when I read that you too are a procrastinator!!! (I am the world's biggest, it's my resolution every new year to change, but I never do!) xx Good luck in the challenge, Barbara xx

  8. WOW - Sue . . . you went for the Twinchies in a big way! These are just gorgeous and it's hard to decide my fave. But MAYBE the poppy one just for the wonderful dimension of it.
