Time for a Twinchie

Hi there,

How is everyone?  I hope you're all keeping cosy and warm. 
Have any of you had snow yet?  We've haven't seen a single flake, but it's a bit on the chilly side though.

Things in the old craft room are still not going smoothly.  Minor panic yesterday when a project I was working on just wouldn't do what I wanted it to.  Stephen came home at lunch time, poor thing, and got the full force of a major rant.  Everything went in the bin, I told him to close the craft room door, I was never going in there again, and he could sell the (bleeping!) lot of it!!!
He was very good.   He gave me a cuddle, told me to walk away and take a break, and not to sell any craft stuff just yet!

I did go back in there later on, started everything again and by the time Stephen came home I was back on track.  So, no huge craft sale just yet.

It's Twinchie time again, don't they soon come around.
It's challenge #11 and the theme is ......
Traditional Christmas Colours 

I must admit I love red and green on Christmas cards, it always looks festive. I do use other colour combinations, but there always has to be at least one of my Christmas designs done in the traditional colourway - call me old fashioned.  

There's some fab inspiration from the Design team over on the Twinchie Challenge Blog.

And here's what I came up with .......

...... a little bunch of mistletoe (mwah!)

The stamp's from an Inkadinkadoo clear set, which I've stamped using a green Versafine ink, then coloured with a Copic pen.  The berries have been highlighted with Liquid Pearls, and a pretty red satin ribbon finishes it all off.  I've mat it onto some red cardstock and added a touch of glitter around the edge.  Twinchie done! 

It's going to go on a card later, so you'll see it again soon.  It's perfect for another Blog Challenge, and as time is a luxury I don't seem to have at the moment, 2 for 1 sounds good to me.

Well, that's me done for today. 
I'm going to try and catch up with all your blogs tonight.  I feel like I've missed so many posts recently, and I do like to see what everyone's up to.

Have a lovely evening.

Cheerio for now
