- 6" x 6" square white card blank
- papers from the cello bag, one large snippet for the background and four smaller ones as a sort of diamond patchwork. I think the papers are 'Nitwits' and originally came free with a magazine
- the wreath is by Penny Black called 'Adornment'. No idea what colour I used to stamp it, ha, just checked my stamp colour swatches and it's Brilliance 'Pearlescent Crimson'
- the sentiment is by Craftwork Cards, a circular one which fits nicely in the centre of the wreath
- a few clear sparkly gems to finish off
A huge sigh here at managing to make such a quick card for today too :)
A quick scamper through my picks of the week:
Sorry it's such a quick race through this week girls - I loved each and every one of your snippets makes.
And now for the prize draw, those really cute House Mouse stamps. And the winner is:
Our Playground prize this week has nothing whatsoever to do with my snippets card - here's a hint though:
Now, the little tale to this is that Elizabeth very sweetly sent me a couple of these stamps to play with quite a while back. Slap my wrists though, I haven't had a chance to use them as yet. And THEN what happened? Totally unconnected and also unaware of what Elizabeth had sent - our Mrs A also sent me a pack of moldable stamps PLUS a set as a Playground prize. What wonderful friends you both are - and many thanks to Mrs A for such a terrific prize.
The 'stamps' are re-usable, just reheat for them to return to their original shape so you can have hours of fun. They are as light as a feather so I'll happily post to anywhere - but as I'll be away they wouldn't be posted until after I return home of course.
A slight temporary change to Playground closing times due to the time difference too. The Playground gates will close at 2am UK time on Saturday 12th October. That gives me a fighting chance of writing up the Playground during the day in between cocktails) in time for the gates opening again at midnight as usual. Maximum of three entries and please say 'No thank you' in a comment if you wish to still play but not be the winner of the prize this week, as shown above.
Mr Linky is below - do please let me know if you have any problems linking, I can sort it out for you quite quickly and am always happy to do so.
One final thing girls, thank you all so much for your input about what we should call the Playground in future. It came across that we ought to drop the 'Crafty' for sure. I was happy with Snippets Playground and am fully supportive of us never dropping 'Snippets', but was also very touched by how many of you wanted a reference to Pixie to remain.
So how about this as the best compromise I've picked up from all your comments? If you want to use the full name of Pixie's Snippets Playground then that's fine, for ease you may want to shorten it to the Snippets Playground or even PSP as some people very cleverly suggested. After all, we all know that LIM is the Less is More challenge - today the Playground, tomorrow we conquer the world girls! Cue music from the St. Trinians films :)
Have a lovely week!
