TLC408 Inchie on a Twinchie


Hello everyone....are you as frazzled as I am?? Christmas is getting close and I still have lots to do!!! This is the first year I didn't make my Christmas cards...yikes!!! I actually bought two boxes and mailed out several this morning. Hopefully, I can finish my shopping tomorrow so I can do a little Christmas baking before the big day!!! Anyway...

It's my turn to host the Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast and I had a little help from my DD Holly. A while back we were talking about some techniques for future challenges and she suggested using inchies. When I told her that had been done, she suggested using twinchies ( a 2 inch square). I thought that one had been done, too, so she said." well, how about an inchie on top of a twinchie?"  And so, a challenge was born....Inchie on a Twinchie!!!! 

My card features the candle stamp from a retired 1999 Stampin Up! set called Fruit of the Season. It was stamped with Handsome Hunter and colored with Copics on an inchie. The twinchie was cut from Handsome Hunter card stock and stamped with Handsome Hunter with a Cornish Heritage Farms Pine Needles and Cones background stamp. Red Baker's Twine from the Twinery finish it off.

This is for a few other challenges:
1. Come and Get It Challenges - anything Christmas
2. Dream Valley Challenge - Christmas

Thanks for stopping by.....have a great day!!!!

Yes, I am frazzled. Can't find enough time in a day. I love this card Joan. It is a perfect card, going to get out my inchies and do up a few for last minute cards that I will for sure need. Thanks for all the great ideas throughout the year.
