"A Twinchie"

Good Morning Blog friends, thank you for popping in today.  I have something a little different, I was looking in on Jenny L`s Blog (Cardsarus) and saw she had done of couple of these tiny cards.  It is amazing what you can learn by Blog Hopping.  I clicked onto the "Twinchie" Blog and had a look there as well.  I decided I had to have a go, here it the one I made.

I made a very miniature of the Heart Pendants that Hazel and I make to raise funds.  I decorated that with tiny buttons I had in my Button Box.  Used a bit of the border I had punched for yesterday`s card.   Tied a double bow with very fine silk ribbon, I think it was from a Flowersoft Kit I bought years ago, I also added a few pearls.
Well what do you think???  They are really cute and actually fun to make.  Might have another go, it is a great way to use up all those tiny scraps.  The only question I ask is.......... what the heck do you do with them????

I have entered this in the

That`s it for today
Thank you for taking the time to call by, I really appreciate your visit, I always love to see you.

  1. Sue P has a lot to answer for when she set off this Twinchie craze! This is really pretty Patricia. love from Christine x

  2. Hi Patricia, sooooooo cute, love what you have created. I feel it would be nice popped in with a gift as a little extra. Must pop in to the "Twinchie" blog and have a peek.

    Have a great day

  3. Hi Patricia,
    and good morning. Well what can I say what a fabulous twinchie, so much lovely detail on such a small card. I too was wondering what to do with them. Maybe use it on a slightly larger card perhaps.
    It's very wet here been ironing since 4.30pm. I have to get up really early to iron as the only place I can iron is by hubbies desk. So I have to do it while he is asleep. lol.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  4. Hi Patricia,
    it's me again, I have just noticed on looking again. You have to put up a link to the twinchies blog on you post. I got told this by DT members when I hadn't.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  5. Hi Patricia

    What a fabulous use of buttons and your tiny little bow is just gorgeous!!

    Beautiful colours too.

    Love Jules xx

  6. How adorable Patricia! They would make lovely gift cards on a present perhaps? x

  7. What a lovely card Patricia, love the buttons! I love making these little cards as gift cards for presents and they sell well at craft fairs too! Carole Z X

  8. Good Morning Patricia, This is worderful, would you be able to put a pin on the back or do it as a stick pin and have a matching pendant. xx Flora

  9. Morning Patricia, Gorgeous twinchie, I love it, the button embellishment is gorgeous, I love your compilation, which must be really hard when you are only dealing with a 2" square card, everything needs to be in miniature, but you have a 'miniature work of art' here.
    I had to chuckle when I read 'What the heck do you do with them' ha ha, I think Jenny's idea of using them as a topper for a much larger card is a great idea.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  10. Really lovely Patricia. Quite an achievement to get so much on so little space and it doesn't look crowded. I suppose you could use them as a gift card.

  11. Patricia this is such a sweet twinchie....amazing piece of artwork on such a small card.


  12. What a lovely way to use buttons. A gorgeous little card, in pretty colours and a fab design.

  13. Wow Patricia, this is rather gorgeous, it appears that the link you've posted doesn't link back to ours when I click on it? Would hate you to miss out on the chance to win our mother of all badges for your blog!

  14. Such a pretty twinchie! Uses? Well you can put them on tags as fift tags, or use on small cards, or make a set of 3 or 4 and use on larger cards!! They're addictive.

  15. What a great twinchie. I saw these on Jenny's blog too and I really must have a go. You've done an amazing job and I love the dimension, colours and textures. Your colour combination is fab too. Good luck in your challenge!! Hugs sharon xxxx

  16. Wow this is gorgeous, such amazing detail on such a small piece x

  17. What a beautiful twinchie, Patrica, so soft and gentle. Can you edit your 'post' to make the correct link back to our challenge please? The one you have shown doesn't work :(

  18. This is just adorable. Great use of those tiny buttons. xx

  19. Love your Twinchie Patricia - I did tell Jenny that she would get hooked and I think you will too! They really are sooooo addictive - I love all your mini embellishments! Hope you carry on making them.

    Hugs Sue Pxxx

    1. Me again - I was just reading Jenny's comment about what to do with Twinchies. What I have done with the first ones I made is just that - I used 5x5 or 6x6 card blanks and then put them on either a diecut or a toning piece of card. I added some flowers on two that were 'flowerless', but the others look quite nice without anything else. I will use these for either quick cards for notes or general cards going with a small gift.

      Hugs again Sue Pxxx

  20. Great twinchie - love the buttons and the bow!
