Twinchies and Mini Moos

Hi everybody, hope you are all enjoying a restful weekend. Here it is still cold, wet and windy, with storms and thunder and lightning, so good weather to stay home. I even tidied my arty kitchen today, and it looks quite good now - wonder how long it will last?

Over at 'Out of a Hat' Creations' the theme this week is Twinchies.  I had some painted paper remnants left over from other projects, and used them to make these twinchies. I stamped and white embossed them with a script stamp, gave each a little strip of gold glitter paper - left over from Xmas - and then decorated with them with all the tiny things I could find - some angels, a CI image, some scraps of ribbon and flowers etc.
They were fun to make, and I will use them as card toppers.







I recently ordered some postcards from MOO for Kat's postcard swap, and while I was at it, some mini cards. You can upload up to 100 photos - I think I managed about 80 before I couldn't see straight any more - and then you need to crop and edit them, and get these wonderful little cards. This is just a selection, I didn't want to spread them all out to take photos. It's interesting to see little *slices* of larger paintings and photos. The pics here look a bit blurry, sorry, but the weather was not good for taking photos today. But I think you get the idea what they are like.


Here's wishing you a good Sunday. Take care, and thanks for visiting!

  1. Absolutely beautiful 'Twinchies' I'm sure that's what they are:) Such a lot of work in each of them. The Moos sound interesting as well. So many things to try.

    The sun is shining here at the moment but it is as cold as Autumn :(

    Thank you for joining us at Out of a Hat this week.

    Love Chrissie xx

  10. Hi
    That is a brilliant idea to use them as card toppers, I'd never have thought to do that and it would make Christmas cards all the quicker to make when the time comes.
    Fabulous Valerie

  16. Your scraps look so fab in the twinchies! You need to get a commission for the MOO cards- I have had these on my list of things to do for a while but now I have the nudge to take action! Your cards are stunning!!

  22. Love your Twinchies Valerie, they will look great as card toppers I even like the set of 4 all together, the theme really ties them all together. I checked out Out of the hat and looks like a fun site. I also found that Moo postcard site. Pretty cool how you can make your own postcards! Love your textured piece and umbrella man and those faces look fabulous. What a great idea to turn them into postcards!

  23. More great work from our talented friend!!! They are cute and I can tell you spent a lot of time on them.
    I would gladly trade some of our weather for yours and we could mix it all up and have perfect weather. It's on 92° F here today...a real cool down from last weeks 106 ° F. We did get a couple of rain showers though so that was a slight relief.

  26. Love the twinchies Val and great way to use up bits and bobs of scraps.
    Those Moo's look like they will be lots of fun to use.
    We had a couple drops of rain but we are so dry the grass is crispy. I could send heat to you if you like, I have had quite enough of it now.
