Twinchies - Show us a Flower

Hello Bloggers

The Folks over at Twinchie Land have asked us to "Add a flower" for this current challenge. So here are mine.....

And as usual I have turned them into cards so that they serve a purpose....
The images are from a new set of stamps which my buddy Kim sent to me for my birthday by Inkadinkado - thank you again Kim, and all the sentiments are from the same set, bar the Happy Anniversary which is by Hero Arts.  A little Distress Ink water colouring using a water colour brush and edging before mounting onto cardstock and then adhereing onto cards.  The Anniversary one is for my Mum and Dad who celebrate their 57th Anniversary next month.  Hmmn!  Not long until their Diamond Anniversary, but mine and the current Mr Hettie's Silver Anniversary is before then.  Gosh!  That makes me feel soooo old!  Especially when you consider that I was one of the last from my year at school who got married!  Awwww!  Such a Happy Day!! 

All the cardstock came from the Snippets box so I will be throwing these into the Snippets Playground.  Hope they don't get wet!

Huh hum!  Back to business!  There is still time (just) if you should want to join in with the Challenge.  Click HERE for details.

Wow Sam, these are fabby and even lovelier when made into cards.

Err, so what's all this about you being seen swinging from the tree branches trying to install cables for a kettle and toaster in the tree house then? And as for a chikkin coop - OK, so long as I get first dibs on the eggs.

Anything else you'd like, a mini zoo, wild tigers roaming free, elephant rides, Miss Di in rehab even?!?!

I just had a go at this challenge too. You weren't on my fingywhatsitlistydoer either, but you are now.
Glad the chicken coup got the plans passed without too much srutiny by Miss Di. Good thinking to disguise the cooker as a huge nesting box!
Hugs Mrs A.

I must have a go at twinchies but then I'm almost always last on the bandwagon! These are little square of gorgeousness! I'm getting the slight impression that our Headteacher is getting a bit cross with us, hee hee!
