Midway Reminder - Christmas is coming so Show Us Your Christmas Twinchies


Good morning friends, followers and twinchie fans, are we all organised and ready for the big day, only  6 days to Christmas Day.  I hope you all have a wonderful time and Santa is good to you.  We are over half way through the month and this is just a little reminder that the Twinchie Challenge runs until the end of the month so there is still time for you to get your Christmas Twinchies entered into the challenge.

I do hope you can find time to enter a twinchie before Christmas, but if not I look forward to seeing your twinchies in the New Year.    Unfortunately there will be no challenge in January, but watch out for my post in February.  I would like to wish you all

A Very Happy Christmas and New Year
Best Wishes Sylv xx

December Challenge - It's looking a lot like Christmas for this Challenge


Good morning to all our twinchie fans, friends, followers and everyone out in blogland, another month and a new Show Us Your Twinchies Challenge. Last month's Show Us Your Bling Twinchie entries were fabulous, thank you all for your entries and without further ado the winner is..... 

 
 Number 1 - (Zoe) MySpecialist

 I picked the winner using Random Org (see a working version in the sidebar) but as yet have not worked out how to get the picture of the winning number into my blog post, any suggestions would be most welcome!

Congratulations Zoe, take your well earned winners badge from the side bar, your winning twinchie can be seen in our winners gallery.


Good morning friends, followers and passers by, are we all getting excited? only 25 days to Christmas.  I do hope you can all find a little time this month to enter a twinchie into this month's challenge which is "Christmas".

Here are a few fun Christmas twinchies to get us into the festive spirit,  3D Santa and Snowman using distress inks, Promarkers, and of course lots of glitter.




I love this little dog stamp which was free with a magazine last year,  the idea for the twinchies came from watching my dog who saw snow for the first time and was fascinated with the falling snowflakes.  The mouse with the sock was another image from a magazine which I used on childrens' Christmas cards, I just had  to make three twinchies with it.



I will be back on the 15th December with the reminder post, looking forward to seeing your Christmas twinchies.

The challenge will run from 9.00 am on 1st December and finish at 9.00 am UK time 31stDecember.  Place your entries here:
