A Twinchie for you?

Hello and welcome, It turned a bit chilly this evening. Mr Mustav says not but he's hard!!!!!! Have you got one of those? You know the type I mean, disagrees even if he knows you're right:0) And anyway I'm a woman I'm always right, right?


Anyhoo
I made another Twinchie :0) Infectious little guys aren't they? So quick and easy,... not! I make Clean & Simple cards correct ? And these little twinchies take me for ever, it seems the smaller they are the more detail I need, it doesn't make much sense!

This time I've gone for vintage and the theme at Show us your Twinchies is 'Add a Flower' Well I have but it's a tiny one, a small punch with perfect pearls for the centre. The team have made some gorgeous samples, pop over and take a look if you have a minute:0)

 This pic shows the real colours, in daylight, the first (artificial light) is almost yellow by comparison
The stamps are by Oxford Impressions, Regency Fashion, and as often is the case I bought mine from The Craft Barn! Have fun my friends, Gay xxx

Very romantic feel to this twinchie. Certainly a representation of a time gone by. I say bring back lace.

Fab twinchie Gay, what a lovely stamp and great embellies! I had to borrow a pair of Mr Pudding's big socks last night as my feet were frozen. He must be as tough as Mr Mustave as he thought I was bonkers and couldn't understand why I was so chilly! Jo x

Love you beautiful torn clokpiece. Such inspiration! Soooo touchy feely! Thank you for the story about your Dad too...fascinating. My hubbys father also worked in a paper mill and would have related to your story...long hours, hard work, paper dust....5 young children at home....! Love the twinchie..without looking it up, is it a 2" inchie? Beautifully done...as always! TFS!
