Here's my snippets card - as you can see, I didn't use a shed load of snippets but even just one snippet qualifies of course:
- A6 white card blank
- a snippet of SU's 'Real Red' card stock for the 'frame'
- Penny Black stamp called 'Missed You!', coloured with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils and blended with Sansodor
- the flag pole was made with a little strip/snippet of white card, just with black bands added using a Whispers marker and the flag was punched from a little snippet of SU's 'Real Red' using SU's 'Petite Pennants Builder' punch
- the sentiment was stamped in Memento 'Tuxedo Black using a sentiment from the Stamendous 'Happy Messages' set
As always, I use my card swatch to check which SU card snippets I use from the snippets folder, that's how I know the names of the colours.
The idea for the card design came from Susan, over at 'My Little Sanctuary'. I did email Susan asking if I could CASE it and had a very sweet 'by all means' in response :-)
Onto this weeks picks now - and they're getting more and more difficult to pick as the weeks go by. This week was trickier than ever.
That was a really super fast scamper through some picks, as I said earlier, every single entry was fabulous so do please check out last week's Mr Linky if you haven't already done so.
And we have one new playmate this week:
OK, so onto the winner of last week's prize, Christmas stamp and die:
Well done Linby! It was lovely to read your comment, just now when I checked that you hadn't said a 'No thanks', saying you love the stamp but haven't got round to owning it yet - Mr Random just put that right for you, along with the ivy corner die :) I also checked back and I think your last weekly win was in week 54 back in January 2013 so you were well due for it to be your turn. Can you please let me have your address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll post the goodies off to you this week.
And of course, this next week's prize is connected to my snippets card:
AND, to celebrate hitting 70 entries I'm also doing one of the 'two week' things. Most of you will already know this, but to be in with a chance of being picked by Mr Linky you have to enter a total of three times over the next two weeks. Not three per week, just a total of three over the two weeks so you can do three in one week, or split it between one and two over the two weeks. Just so long as you have a total of three entries - but of course you can still enter three times each week if you want to. DO please try to remember to add the number 3 after your name on your third entry if you want to be in the draw for the prize shown below - if you forget just leave me a comment. It makes life so much easier if I don't have to trawl right through entries counting up over the two weeks plus it makes it clear that you're playing for the extra prize - which is this beauty:
The usual snippets challenge will run for one week (for the Penny Black stamp) and the Playground gates will close at 11am UK time on Saturday 7th June and will open again at midnight UK time on the same day. 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.
Mr Linky is below - 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.
After a very damp week we have sunshine here in the Playground but the weather is still variable. But who knows, as it's June perhaps things will improve - see you in the Playground!
Di (and a wave from Parsnip)
Happy June, Di! I'm sure my eyes and computer are deceiving me that I am no. ONE?!! I've been having trouble all day leaving comments, so hopefully the link and comment will work.ReplyDelete
You have done an outstanding job picking wonderful artists to showcase this week!! Even though it is hard to choose, what a fun job is that?
No thank you on the pressie! See you on the playground!! Hugs, Darnell
What an adorable PB stamp & I love your card, Di! I plan to get 3 cards made in the 2 weeks, but keep me out of the drawing for the stamp. Really lovely & unique picks this week!ReplyDelete

As for that Hedgie golfer.....so cute, Di!
Hi Di - Sorry I've not been around - been in hospital for almost 3 weeks - not good. Not able to craft just yet but will be popping into blog land to check out stunning work. Love your Penny Black creation.ReplyDelete
I managed to get in here early this week after I've been missing for a week or two. Your cute card is fun, and your picks are fabulous as ever. I am playing for fun this week but if I manage to get three cards made I would love to be in the draw for the Embossing Folder.ReplyDelete
Thanks for calling in today, Di. I really learned a lot from just watching Shaz last week. I always find I learn more from watching people doing these things than from any description. Have a good week. xx MaggieReplyDelete
Ooh so excited to win, especially as you know it is on my wish list and I'm trying to be good!ReplyDelete
Love your card this week too, especially the crafted golf pole.
Here at last Miss DiReplyDelete
Another great snippet make from you .. .. fabby weekly picks and well done Linby!
Just playing for fun as this little chappie already resides in my favourite stamp drawer.
Have a good week.
Love Jules xx
Love your cute PB card.ReplyDelete
Another glorious sunny day here...sporting a bit of a tan on my shoulders and back of my neck...obtained it while shopping at the scrappy garage sale in the sunchine!ReplyDelete
Just dropping off another card...
Now who is going to slap Mo for gloating about the sunny weather?ReplyDelete
Fanks for mentioning my lickle album. I knew Ali liked it as she put photos of it on fb!
Hi Miss Di & the lovely Parsnip,ReplyDelete
just entered my 2nd entry.
Love your super Poppy pic, I have one just the same as that, but my garden is a mess at the mo as I can't garden yet, and hubby is not well enough to do it for me.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
Good morning Miss Di, Your card is so sweet, I love the little flag, what dimension it adds to your card. I'm sure we will all run wild on the playground today... such wonderful weather we are having. Enjoying the sunshine, which for now is not too hot!ReplyDelete
What a cute card you have made. this is an adorable stamp.ReplyDelete
Fabulous card Miss Di and that is a super stamp. I will pop along to play later but just for fun xxReplyDelete
Number 40 is my third card and I forgot to write "3" beside it. Sorry!
I am a wee bit sleepy...think I need a nap!
Happy June Miss Pixie!ReplyDelete
Congratulations to the winners and welcome to the newbies! Such gorgeous picks again Miss and a fabulous card from you too!
I was going to accuse you of making a crepe paper flower and sticking it onto a stick - that is beautiful! I'll be back soon Karen x
I'm a little late this week, but wanted to stop by for a quick peek. Great picks as always and an adorable golfer. Just playing for fun.ReplyDelete
Love the miss you stamp! I have missed you! I haven't the creativity lately to stamp much. I discovered a whole drawer of snippets to play with once I'm back on my game.ReplyDelete
wonderful cards Di, both here and up above.ReplyDelete
... You really are busy. am taking wee break so have not been around much and going to have to be so for while.. but wanted to pop over with some makes from earlier in year :D love Shaz in oz.x
Hi Miss Di & the lovely Parsnip,ReplyDelete
I have just entered my 3rd project for the challenge.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
I made a mistake Miss!!!ReplyDelete
I thought I had entered two already but I'm not sure so the one I just entered might not be #3 - will try to check more thoroughly in a mo! Karen xx
Hey Di, I received my package and have entered a card using the cat die cuts. Lovin my prize. Thanks *U*ReplyDelete
Loved finding your snippets challenge...Hope I've added it right, nothing happened for the first three tries. But I think its there now!!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous PB image and lovely card. Congrats Linby!ReplyDelete
Congrats to Linby for last week, and what a lovely selection of cards. I have managed two this week which is good for me. I love the golfing Hedgie Di and your idea with the flag is great. Thanks for the chance of that pretty EF - that's if I manage another card next week. xReplyDelete
