Twinchie time again

Craft packages ordered =1, craft packages received =2

It’s finally Friday – hurrah! If you’re in the UK you may well have spent the day in your PJs to mark Children In Need Day. One of the disadvantages of mostly working from home is that you miss out on fun office activities although for my workmates it’s probably a blessing that I’m not rocking up in my novelty nightwear! Back in the days when I worked in London for the BBC both myself and Mr Beez used to do a voluntary stint answering the phones and taking donations on Children In Need night. It was a heart warming and humbling experience.

Today I have some festive twinchies to share with you and, as you will see, I am slowly becoming totally immersed in Christmas:


I am sharing these over at Show Us Your Twinchies where the current challenge is to use bling. Now, given that bling is my thing, these are quite understated and even more so in the photos whichย do not show off the full extent of their sparkle.



I used my Dylusions holly stamp on white card and coloured in the leaves with a selection of green Promarkers. Then I added the background colour using various distress inks applied with Inkdusters.


I’ve added white highlights and snow with a gel pen.


I’ve used Xmas Red Stickles for the berries and extra sparkle to the leaves with a glitter gel pen.


I can’t decide which colour is my favourite, except I wish the red one (above) was a little darker,


These would make nice toppers for clean and simple cards. However, I’m tempted to see if I can find some small frames to put them in.

If you’re out and about fundraising for Children In Need I hope you’re super successful. Meanwhile, I shallย sit here, all alone, wearing my Pudsey Bear ears ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for buzzing by.

  2. So very pretty, what do you do with the twinchies once you have made them? Do you put them on cards? I’ve always wondered what people do with their creations. I was brought up by very spartan parents where you had to have a purpose for something. Hard mind set to kick. I love how you embossed them to look even prettier. Happy days

    • I always mean to turn them into cards are small pieces of art to hang, but somehow that never quite happens!! If I could escape my day job I would do it!!

I really appreciate it when people take time to leave a comment, thank you so much for doing so :)
