Snippets Playground

Weeks 208-209

The sentiment says Thank You, and quite apt as I should thank Miss for all her hard work over the past 4 years, dedication and an all round good egg.

Everything, apart from the image is made from snippets
Pre-coloured image and papers from LOTV
Pink card, I think is SU
Border die - MFT
Sentiment Craftwork Cards

Suddenly realised that I needed another entry into the Playground as my last entry will be Saturday Morning just before the gates close.
I think that Miss will have a real struggle on her hands picking her favourites this time as there are, as always, some stunners.
New Years Eve, wonder if Sarn will be behind the bike shed tonight, will take a couple of bottles just in case, better take one for myself too.

Merry Christmas, Everyone



This should be my last Christmas card of 2015, not taken at a great angle and in the dull and dismal  weather that we have been having this past couple of weeks.

Apart from the actual card all the white card is from my snippets collection,
which is quite large.
Lil Inker's Stitched Square die.
Memory Box - Perfect Patches die
Cute Robin - Penny Black from the Jolly Friends set
Sentiment - SU

Presents - wrapped and delivered
House cleaned from top to bottom
All food shopping complete

Christmas dinner this year will be today (Wednesday 23rd) as Son-in-Law goes back to work on Christmas Eve, flies to Buenos Aires, not back again till end of March.

Now serious stuff.
I would like to thank all my FABULOUS followers and friends for all your visits and comments over the past year you have all been so very kind, I really appreciate you taking the time to pop by and leave a comment.

May you all have a really lovely Christmas 
and I wish you all a very Happy, Healthy 2016

Penny Black and More - Goodness knows, Anything goes

Sorry about the photo.

I am also going to push my luck and enter this into Di's Snippets Playground as the image was stamped on a piece of left over A4 card, as is the piece of gold backing paper, now to me it is not really a snippet but I'll give it a try, probably get a detention, but hey ho, what's another one.

This is PB stamp - Tree Chirps
A bit of left over shimmer gold backing paper
Coloured with ProMarkers
I used peel off's for the sentiments coloured red, well I didn't dare use a stamp because it took 4 goes to colour this image to anything a tad decent, so I wasn't going to spoil it by making a mess of stamping the sentiment.
A bit of glitter added here and there
I am totally useless at colouring but this was not an image to paper piece but I do love the stamp.
Wish I'd put a ribbon on the card too, then I could have also entered Stamping Sensations.

Allsorts challenge week 340 - CAS


It is Brenda's turn to host the challenge this week and she has chosen the the theme of...
...CAS - Clean and Simple.
I have used the Penny Black Snowman from the Jolly Friends set, never goes out of fashion
Taylored Expressions  EF - Snowfall
Coloured with Promarkers
MS glitter on the hat
Pearls for the berries.
Sentiment is a piece of ribbon that I glued onto a piece of card as I thought the snow bubbles would show under the ribbon, if I placed it straight on the card.

The red card was just the right size for the card but I did not have any left to make an oval to back the image so I cut a larger oval out of the embossed card then placed the image in the frame so it looks as if it is backed.

Have a great week.

Our sponsor this week is Scrappers Delight


and we also have an extra prize of this paper pad.


Thanks so much for popping by.
