- A6 Kraft card blank
- robin and holly stamps from the Woodware 'Tweet Birds' set (in fact these little guys could be coloured differently to make little blue tits or such), stamped onto a snippet of white card and coloured with Pro Markers
- then cut with such a useful die from the Spellbinders 'Resplendent Rectangles' set and a little red gem added as the holly berry
- sentiment was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black' using a stamp from the Personal Impressions 'Many Greetings' set
- the background papers are snippets from LOTV's 'Classic Christmas' paper pad
The current challenge over at Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge is 'Do you hear what I hear' and, as I love to hear our local robin singing, this card fits the bill - oops, unintentional pun there! Of course I'm also entering this into Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for September, where it's always 'Anything goes'.
So let's run through this week's picks, as always such a difficult choice from all your beautiful work girls:
And, we have three new playmates as well:
What fun - our three new playmates all arrived almost one after another during the week. I'm always curious how peeps find the Playground - it would be great if you could pop over to say hello to them :)
The winner of last week's prize of the JustRite 'Burlap Background' stamp is:
Maarit has been playing with us regularly in the Playground since March and this is her first win, so well done Maarit! Just shows, the number 13 can be lucky :) Can you please send me your home address and I'll post the stamp to you as soon as possible (email@example.com).
And this coming week's prize is:
Yup, it's a Woodware 'Tweet Birds' stamp set, just like the one I used today. There are nine little birdies for you to play with, plus a couple of sentiments and two holly sprigs. The birds are about 1.25" in size.
As usual, the Snippets Challenge will run for one week and the Playground gates will close at 11am UK time on Saturday 13th September 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, it's easy for me to sort out so don't struggle on alone :)
And a big PS from me - I don't know how, but some of you know I have a Birthday later this week. A few cards already arrived - but being like a kid I quickly peeked and then popped them back into their envelopes to appreciate properly on 'the day'. Thank you so much and I'll be in touch once I legitimately look at them - it's really so very kind of you - err, please remember I pay our postman's tip at Christmas based on volume of deliveries :) Sooooooooooooo, just raise a glass wherever you are and take a big slurp for me - that will do nicely.
And, I actually went to bed this afternoon - Saturday - to read and then sleep for a few hours. That is just soooo out of the normal frame as I never, ever, just crash during the day however I feel, sigh. Len is currently heating me up some soup with nicely buttered (OK Flora'd if you really must!) and cut into dinky pieces of bread - bless him :).
I'm OK but am worried that our lovely friend Elizabeth is down with something similar so do please go and give her hugs. And also Karen has been having a rough ride lately, so she could do with some love as well.
Di (and the usual happy wave from Parsnip of course)
