The Inchie and Twinchie Show

Hi All-we are back to winter weather here in NE UK and it keeps snowing in flurries and is bitter cold so a good day to stay in and craft. Always lots of things to play with in the craft room and also have a new jigsaw to start today as well-that will be fun :)

Here I am with a post for 2 places. I am trying to join in with both every time--the inchies are every week and the Twinchies once a month.

At Every Inchie Monday this week it is the theme glasses. I had thought of ones filled with lager but changed my mind.


This is my take on the theme and it sprung to mind after going to the cinema and trying to book for the Hobbit. The person selling the tickets kept telling Vic he needed to have the right glasses to be able to see it and he kept saying he could only use one eye properly so they would be useless. In the end we came away and waited until we found somewhere with the non 3D version. Brilliant film if you haven't seen it and like The Hobbit story.

Next is Show us your Twinchies where the theme is flower or flowers. Always a great choice for any challenge I think.

For this I did a zentagle background and made a flower from leather cloth and fine linen. I used the Sizzix, Tim Holtz Flower die to cut the shapes using my Cuttlebug. I have used silver pen on some of the petals but it doesn't show up too well on the photograph.

That's it for now folks! Have a good day.

Love Chrissie xx

The 3D films give me headaches.
Even with the blue and red glasses I find it difficult to see objects.
Love your inchie.

These are great, I really like your zentangle background. x

MorningAJ said...

They're both wonderful.

I saw the Hobbit in 3D and it was worth it - but I guess with only one working eye it would have been a waste.

Beautiful twinchie! Know what you mean bout 3d, I can only see with my right eye, and 3D is something I have to pass by! Hugs, Valerie
