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 (email@example.com) 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!
