Bees and Butterflies and Another Twinchie

Just back from holiday and itching to catch up with what you lovely ladies in blogland have been up to while I was away.  I have a list of challenges I would love to enter but time as always is slipping away and I only have a few days for some (the Craft Barn Alpha Challenge will be a rushed effort this time round!).

My first bit of work is a twinchies to be entered into the Twinchie Challenge Blog where the theme is: 

Bee's & Butterflies

I managed to run this up last night and hope to get another done before the end of the month.

 As my base I covered a 2" x "2 piece of linen card with mown lawn distress ink and stenciled a "B" in brushed corduroy distress ink.  The bee (personal Impressions Stamp) was stamped, coloured with spiced marmalade distress ink, fussy cut and highlighted with glossy accents.  I roe a pice of linen card, embossed it with a honeycomb folder and coloured with tattered straw and spiced marmalade distress inks, a little melted wax was poured over it and it was attached to the twinchie with the bee. I had to use a candle for the wax, I have some bees wax somewhere and wanted to use it but could I find it! NO.

Thats it for now, family coming this weekend but hope to sneak a little time to catch up, leave you all some comments on your wonderful work and maybe get some more crafting done.

I think this is so neat - so is a Twinchie a 2x2 card? Inquiring minds want to know!!
