It's August, can you believe it?
We had the hottest June and July...and now that it's August we started seeing some rain and much cooler temps. We were sure ready for some cooler weather and we surely need some rain...just seems weird to have this backward weather.
Lately, I have not been crafting nearly as much as I would like. I don't really know how time slips away without accomplishing much of anything...but it does. There are so many ideas I have floating around in my head...I want to get them out on paper!!!!
I am still very interested in "TWINCHIES" http://twinchie-twinchiehotmaillive.blogspot.co.uk/ But learning how to decorate them better is a process for me. So this card I made has a Twinchie on it. I am not very happy with it, but it's a beginning and I intend to just keep trying.
The picture did not come out too well. The twinchie stands out away from that doily in the back of it. Here it kind of looks like they just run in together.
The paper is a small 4x6 paper pack I picked up in a bargain bin by K&Company and I love it. Has very nice background paper.
The twinchie is cut from a packaging for a book I just bought for the library. I am always looking at the packaging for anything I buy. Some of it is pretty awesome.
I glued on a flower doily to the twinchie and on top of that I attached a stamped and watercolored Iris I had made a while ago.
The butterflies are Dazzles from Hot off the Press.
The bottom is a strip of navy blue cardstock with large very glittery circles.
The card itself is this moss green cardstock and I used a border punch that I got a bit ago.
So, of course I entered this in this challenge: http://twinchie-twinchiehotmaillive.blogspot.co.uk/ . Their requirement this time is for a twinchie with a flower on it.
http://thecraftypad.blogspot.com/ requires using a die or a punch. The bottom of my card is cut with an edger punch. I have it partially covered with a ruler to show the measurement of the twinchie, but you can still see that it is there.
So, that's it for this day.
I have a couple other projects I want to get to...
Thanks for stopping by. Leave me a note. I would love to hear from you.
