'It's All Fiddle Fart'. She really does come up with some great ideas and I've followed her blog from waaay back before this blog was even thought about. I truly do think you should go and see what she gets up to.
- 6" x 6" square cream card stock
- another piece of the same cream card stock, layered onto a square of SU's 'Always Artichoke' card stock
- a snippet of brown card, die cut using the totally fabulous Memory Box 'Arboscello Tree' die - it's 3.2" x 3.7" in size
- seven different coloured snippets of thin card (ha, that didn't make much of a dent in the ever-expanding snippets folder), all punched out with a small Tonic punch flower punch - approximately 1cm across
- seven different colours of sparkly 3mm gems
- a big dollop of patience/OCD
I adore this die - if you Google it there are tons of way to use it. I got carried away and really covered the lovely branches but less is as good or even better. Plain white on a sympathy card, a bit of glitter for Christmas, more than one to make a little copse of trees, the list goes on. I like the idea of leaving it plain and just drawing a little line with a single heart dangling from a branch.
OK, so this week's show and tell - which seemed to stream in at the end of the week:
And finally, Tara made this really amusing snippets card (could have been some of us last weekend girls!) - just look at the paper piecing! Great use of snippets.
I say it every week, and make no apologies either - each and every snippets make is gorgeous and I wish I had time to cover every single one. You can do your bit by going to last week's Mr Linky and having a little hop around.
And a big welcome to Max who played along for the first time this week too!
OK, drum roll - onto the draw for the lovely La Blanche stamp donated by Mrs A - and the winner is:
Scrappymo - aka Maureen
Again, it took me three goes to find someone who hadn't said no thank you (tell you what Darnell and Mrs A, you really ought to buy some Lottery tickets!). I do know that Mo said she loved this stamp so it's going to a good home!
Maybe this week's little prize will be no surprise -yup, it's an Arboscello Tree die of your very own. Maybe I'm inflicting my own taste on you at times 'cos often when I find something I love - two fall into my shopping basket! One for me and one for the snippets toy box:
The Playground is open all of this coming week, will close on Saturday 27th April at noon UK time and Mr Linky is below as usual. Just enter a snippets make into the Playground this week and I'll do a draw after the Playground closes next Saturday.
As usual I am asking for a snippets make please, maximum of three entries and please say 'No thank you' in a comment if you wish to still play but not be a winner of the die.
Enjoy the rest of the week! My back feels a lot better already, fingers crossed.
