Mixed Media Monday - Thrinchie

At Mixed Media Monday, the current challenge is to make a Thrinchie - a 3 inch square piece of art. I made quite a lot of these back in May for some exchanges etc but I didn't know their name then. Anyway tonight I made another one for MMM this week - it uses Oxford Impressions Family Man stamps and a piece of map themed scrapbook paper with Distress inks in blue and black to colours the edges. A little bit of "toned-down" gold German scrap for adornment and a whizz around the edges with the sewing machine to keep the three layers all together. A bit of fun!

Today's work trip went fine but waking at 4:30 in the morning means I am well and truly ready for bed now and it is only 9:30. I'm not going to fight it though, so good night!

Love this stamp Debbi - going to look for something similar myself. Would go well with what I'm working on at the moment, instead of printing with a laser.
'Thrinchies' - whatever next *LOL*

Also wanted to say I get up around that time every morning unfortunately and yes, I too am more than ready for bed by 9.30. :)

4.30 in the morning, that's the middle of the night for me!!
Love your 'thrinchie', it's funny how these little bits of fun turn out so well isn't it. Must be because we're more relaxed when we do them.
