Snippets Playground - update

First of all, a snippets card from me. I had carefully peeled a lovely heart shaped topper off the Valentine's Day card that Len gave me this year and it was on my desk for weeks. Then, I had a paper pad out for a different card (still to be made) and the topper and one of the paper designs just seemed to wanna have a hug :) So I made this:
I used:

- 5" x 5" square white linen card blank

- backing card by SU, 'Smoky Slate', from the snippets folder

- a piece cut from a sheet of patterned paper in the LOTV 'Heartfelt' paper pad (I love this pad!)

- the adorable topper, added using thin sticky pads

- the word 'love' was die cut three times from another snippet of SU's 'Smoky Slate' card stock (backed with Stick It adhesive film) then layered together for dimension. The die is by Cheery Lynn, called 'Love' (now there's a surprise!)

And a little update on the Snippets Playground. When this publishes we should be back home but, as I said already, the Playground will run for a further week to give me time to catch up. However, I'm adding some little runner up prizes into the draw:
The lovely people at Stix2 sent me four of these little packs to give away. Each one contains a packet of tiny sticky pads, a tape runner, a glue stick and a really handy 'Pick Up Pencil', which is so useful for picking up little gems etc.

To be in with a chance, all you need to do is to have at least one entry in the Mr Linky on last Sunday's post HERE. You have all of this coming week if you haven't already played.

Then, just leave a comment here saying you'd like to be in the runner up draw - of course if you already said you want to be in the main draw you can also enter this one as well!

Now, I thought there might be a little complication with posting these packs outside the UK.  I've checked with Stix2 directly and they post the glue sticks overseas, they go on white and dry clear and are non-flammable - so you can all play along too, no matter where you live!

How adorable is this one? Just absolutely darling, Love the little sweethearts, and the heart goes so lovely with the pink rose crackled background. The layered die has some wonderful dimension. Good for you on the recycle effort. It's just beautiful. Hope you are home safely, rested up, and feeling ok. I'll say no thanks on the goodies, but how kind of this company to share these with the Snippeteers. TFS & Hugs

That is so sweet Di, I am all for recycling. Yes please for the runner-up prize too

Jane Willis said...

Aw, that is so sweet - and I bet your OH is flattered that you loved his Valentine card so much that you decided to repurpose some of it! I've already played (well, for the first time anyway) at the playground and said no to the main draw, but I'd like to be in the runners up draw please. A girl can never have enough sticky stuff!

Liz said...

What a great image to recycle! It goes perfectly with the backing paper. Lovely card. I'm a Yes Please for the runners up draw. xx

This is an adorable image Di and together with that pretty backing paper is a marriage made heaven! Such pretty colours too. I don't think I have said yet but can I please be entered in to the main draw but say 'no' to the sticky stuff. Thanks and hope all went well with this less than happy occasion and that you have arrived home safely. x

Kathleen said...

Well it looks like your little House Mouse came up trumps with the image on his Valentine card to you this year and love how you have up-cycled it.

I haven't had a Valentines card off Chris since the first year we were married so that is 45 years ago.
I don't mind being included in the draw for this extra prize, thanks.
