Cards created with Twinchies

Hello again,  I hope your week is going well.

I'm back with two cards that I created today with the Twinchies from my last two posts.    If I had thought to make them earlier I would have included them with the posts.

These cards are a simple symmetrical style which hopefully 'showcases' the 2 inch (5 centimetre) square in the centre. 

Also, a little 'injury' update.   My index finger is doing extremely well and my knee has improved but still giving me trouble.    I can move around much better and thankfully able to craft (obviously) again, but not able to get into my regular physical activities.   I was advised this morning that I have accelerated an existing arthritis problem (oh the joys of getting 'mature').  Time will tell how it goes.

Thanks for visiting, Enjoy the rest of the week,

I just love what you did with your twinches. The layouts looked framed and I agree with the previous comment, you could frame these and hang them on the wall.

I'm glad you're doing better:)

Shirley, these twinchies are great, I've not heard of them before. Must pop across to 'Show us your twinchie' and have a look. Glad to hear your on the mend. Jools. xx

Alle beide Karten sehen traumhaft schön aus, liebe Shirley.
Ich warte schon auf deine nächste Werke.

Liebe Grüße

Your twinchiecards look both very beautiful.
Yes, you did it girl!
Sorry to hear about your already existing arthritis problems.
That not such a good message for somebody with a big garden.
It's difficult to find out how to handle this in normal life.
Be kind to yourself and skip the words I MUST, do what you can do on a day and leave the rest for a new day to come.
Take care xxGery

What fabulous twinchies Shirley - love them both but I think my favourite is the second one - the purple and blue ink blending is fabulous.
I'm pleased to hear that you are crafting again, and I hope the arthritis problem settles down once you are fully recovered from your injuries. Take care,and don't overdo it!
Have a very relaxing weekend - hugs, Sylvia xx
