Bearing that in mind, I didn't ask anyone to be a Guest Designer for this coming fortnight - am sure there are more pressing things to be getting on with!
However, instead of a GD, there's an extra giveaway which will run for the next two weeks only. Closing time for entries is exactly at midnight (Sunday 31st December) as we swing into 2018. I'll use the Random Number generator to select the winners (you'll have to trust me as no way am I doing a screen capture, edit and then adding it into the blog post - times 20!) and I'll post the winners names during the first week of 2018. In order to enter, just add your name only to Mr Linky below - no snippets card is required. And the Mr Link is only for use with the prize(s) I've written about below. I do ask that you're already an active Snippets Playmate (no new people please).
A while ago, when I was moaning about a little ink smudge on a card I published here, Pat mentioned that the very talented Jennifer McGuire (who I always think is a great source of crafting advice) had been singing the praises of a Tombow 'Sand Eraser'. Well, you know me - off I hopped and ordered some to try out. They're quite small but should last for a while and they're great for removing little ink smudges and other 'glitches' such as even a little biro streak. They won't shift the likes of Pro markers (as you know, those alcohol inks soak right into card) but for surface marks they work brilliantly! And they don't scuff the surface of your card or paper - so long as you don't go at it hammer and tongs - slowly does it! And, as Greta rightly says, be patient and wait until any ink marks/smudges are dry, otherwise you risk spreading them further.
This is what they look like:
I actually got these at a really good price (no longer available) back in September. Something tells me that they might even have advertised the price wrongly (ie. way too low) as they're going for silly money elsewhere!
Am happy to post anywhere - so if you fancy trying one of these very useful little erasers out - just add yourself into Mr Linky at the end of this post.
This giveaway is in addition to, as well as totally separate to any other Christmas snippets linked prizes I may find time to offer over the holidays (on top of the usual fortnightly prize which will appear next Sunday as usual) - so I do recommend that you take a peek here over the holidays to see just what might unexpectedly pop up on offer :)
Time for the fortnightly picks now:
Prize draw time now and our winner of the Woodware 'Huge Santa' stamp set and the unbranded 'Ho, ho, ho' stamp set is:
Keep those snippets entries coming folks, you still have a week left to play HERE for weeks 311/312 remember! The prize is a Lil'Inker Designs 'Christmas Words Tree' die .
Love from the little white peril Parsnip (who is hopping up and down making lists, fretting and also whimpering now and then as he finalises things for Christmas). Do we really need me to make four dozen of my special sausage rolls I wonder? He's a little terror and ought to be locked up for December - I think! But I do love him to pieces of course :)
