Tweet Hugs

I hope you had a lovely weekend.  I didn't post on Friday like I usually do as I went down with a 48 hour bug that even kept me out of my craft room (it was that bad!!).  But I'm back to 'normal' now and I've made a card using Winnie and Walter 'So Tweet' stamps.  I was inspired to get this stamp set out again after seeing an amazing card by Rebekah Weckerley who I have recently discovered on Instagram.  Her blog is here.
So Tweet stamps by Winnie and Walter coloured in using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers
I have used my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers to colour both the bird and the leaves and flowers and then added some Glossy Accents to the little bird's chest/heart.
I cut the 'hugs' out using my Cameo and heat embossed that with a woodgrain stamp onto some pink card and then layered it onto some black card which I slightly offset so that it gave it a 3D effect.
So Tweet by Winnie and Walter
I also heat embossed the sentiment which is from the same stamp set.  It is all adhered onto some watercolour card that I cut out using WPlus9's Sunshine Layers.
We had a big dollop of snow overnight last Thursday which settled quite heavily on ice so it caused a few problems on the roads although I have to say that where I live everyone is used to snow and just gets on with it but when we walked into town at the weekend for our usual Saturday morning coffee, it was a bit slippery underfoot and I remembered reading recently that walking like penguins is a good way to stop yourself from slipping up on ice.  So much to my husband's amusement (and embarrassment) I waddled down the road like a penguin!!!!  And do you works!  We were laughing all the way to the coffee shop.  I dare you to try it :-)
Toodles noodles,

  1. Hi Wendy, Sorry you've not been well, but glad you wasn't laid up for too long. Love the cute little flowers on the tweet card. Just a little dusting of snow here. Would love to have a bucket of it - our house looks out to the cumbrian mountains and they looks gorgeous snow-covered! xx

    1. Sounds like you have a lovely view over the mountains Jacqueline. Our snow has gone now - the rain washed it away but it makes it easier to walk now! :-)

  2. What a shame our snow has melted so I cant try the waddling technique, I would have loved to see a video of you doing that. Another stunner of a card, beautiful colouring stamping and use of your Cameo your talents know no bounds. Glad to hear you are recovering from your bug.

    Take care


    1. Oh you say such lovely things Marie! It's odd to think you have had snow in Greece when my sister who lives down near Oxford hasn't seen a snowflake yet this year!

  3. This is such a Tweet card, beautiful flowers and great image, LOVE the hugs.

    We had at least 2mm of snow which lasted all of a couple of hours! Would loved to have seen you laughing and waddling LOL.

  4. A very cute and sweet card. I love the flowers you added at the top. A perfect addition. Sounds like you had fun doing the penguin walk. I like your sense of humor and sounds like your dh has a good one, too.


I love to get comments on my blog so thank you for taking the time to say hello! Wendy x
