A Card and a Twinchie

Hi all,

Can you see my shining halo?  I spent three days this week sorting out my craft room - it had to be done - it was beginning to suffocate me, now it's a pleasure to work in again.  Hence, I've done no crafting and very little blogging this past week so apologies if I've not come to visit you - I will play catch up this week.

Onto this week's Less is More Challenge - Chrissie and Mandi have given us an easy peasy theme - "OVAL".

Here's my card ....





Oval is embossed with Papermania Victorian Fleur, Sizzix/Hero Arts stamps and matching dies, Dew Drop Pearlescent Ivy and Perfect Plumeria inks, some pink stickles and sentiment is Stampavie.


and whilst I was at it I made a twinchie for Show us your Twinchies - the theme this fortnight is "ADD A STAMPED IMAGE"





Same as before but this time I added a little SU Embosslit butterfly, popped up the flower centre, inked the edges with Victorian Velvet and added a touch of GA.

Okay, that's me for today, it's been a glorious day here in NE Scotland, hope the sun is shining wherever you are.

Thanks for stopping by.

Suze xx

Beautiful card Suze - so soft and feminine. I love the clean look and the stamping is perfect.
That twinchie is just divine though! Having hated making inchies, I'm not sure twinchies would be much better but this little darling may persuade me to have a go.
Well done for doing your room. I'm currently sat in an absolute tip and my Husband just puts his head round the door and gives me a look, shakes his head and disappears mumbling about the mess!!
Enjoy your Sunday.
