Good afternoon my lovely blog friends and I must say a huuuuge hello to my new followers it's so nice to have you checking over my blog bits and pieces - thanks to all of you for your comments, you have been truly brilliant with your kind words.
We've had a pootle out to the Garden Centre this morning because we had to buy the extra bulbs, soil and plants that were needed to finish off the pots and planters. The sun has been shining here and it was a really nice drive. My lovely hubby treated us to a coffee/tea and a piece of cake - they always have home-made cakes yum yum!
Anyway I thought that I would post another Twinchie today. As you probably know by now, I love them and was actually playing about with a few snips and bits to see what I could come up with.
I've had some new dies and was trying them out because I wanted to send some diecuts to a friend. The first one didn't emboss properly, my fault, so I put it to one side to use (for something or other) later on. The diecut that didn't emboss properly was the Anja's Square die (which I had been trying to get hold of forevvvva) so I chopped the corner hearts off and stuck/glued/adhered them - whatever floats yer boat - to a snippet of pale turquoisy blue card from my bit box. I tweaked them a bit to 'cushion' them out a little. The base card is covered with a teeny morsel of gorgeous handmade paper. I put the hearts on top of this with Pinflair glue, to keep them raised, and then added some of the teeny tiny punched flowers that I found in my stash a while ago.
I know this is a very very simple Twinchie made from bits and pieces but I'm a firm believer in waste not want not and I keep so many snips etc that it is a shame not to use them.
The middles of the flowers are Cosmic Shimmer Pearl PVA which tended to flatten out on this type of card so I had to tweak them with a cocktail stick as they were drying. Bit messy!!!
I hope you like my Twinchie. Thank you for stopping by and checking it out - I would love you to leave a comment, if you have time of course. Hope to catch up with you all soon, it's wonderful that you are interested in being followers of my meanderings.
Big hugs to you all out there and I wish you happy crafting.
