UKS Twinchie Swap May 2012

Well it's May Day and it looks like the April showers are continuing here. I think my garden has been watered enough now may I please have some dry weather so I can get out & do some planting?
On UK Stampers Stitcharama Girl has proposed a twinchie swap with a theme of lettering. I had an idea in my mind and some time last night so I made these. I know that the twinchies will be split up so the fact that they spell 'ART' is meaningless but hey ho I felt like doing it, I think each square is able to stand on its own. The BG is Impress lemon yellow & peony purple (loving this colour at the moment). I stamped a Hampton Arts crackle in Stazon  stone grey and used peony purple again for the text which is a PA stamp. It has different words in various fonts with the last line reading 'no more words'. The doily type corners are part of a round Spellbinder set that I bought last summer in The States for $5! I cut the letters from various alphabet sets - CB curls & swirls and Sizzix mango tango & retro metro (who thinks these names up???). For added interest I rounded off one corner and used my southwestern punch on two more. Looking at them on screen I think it needs something (a gem maybe) in the bottom left corner. Will have a fiddle later today and see but for now WORK beckons!
Edited to add: I decided to go with the gems, they seem to finish the twinchies off. 


I read and value all your comments.
