And Now For...

... Something Completely Different :O)) Wow, I was asked to be a Guest Designer for this fab challenge Blog - they are celebrating their 1st birthday this week and the theme for the challenge is Twinchies & Flowers. I am really honoured to have been asked to be a GD, so here is a HUGE thank you to all the talented lasses on the team :O))




Now, funnily enough, I have never made a Twinchie! Never! Actually, that is a fib cos I have made 2" square bits to go into Shadow Boxes and onto cards, so actually it was quite an easy challenge for me to do - save for the fact that I got really carried away and ended up making more than just the one!




I used some cream card and coloured it with Distress Inks and stamped with Studio 490 stamps - I haven't used them for a few weeks and was starting to get withdrawals LOL And... I added on some Grungepaper flowers for good measure too.




Now, if you get chance it is well worth a hop over to the SCD Blog - they have CANDY on offer for a lucky winner... go on, you know you want to :O)) And... the designers on the team have made some divine pieces of art to look at too :O)) Thanks for looking... I will be back tomorrow with a rather unusual bit of.. erm... art??? I will leave that decision to y'all... suffice to say, I sewed and stitched!!!! *pass the smelling salts!!*



Am off to get my chicken curry dinner now - homemade and hotter than hot... and... don't forget... devotee's of Ashes to Ashes... tis the penultimate episode tonight *sob* oh how will I cope without the Gene Genie??? TTFN

PS... my DIY Hero Grim was in Room One 4 today... and put up shelves for me... I have a new nag now though... I want more ROFL x
