So, this was a very swift rummage through my snippets and a really quick card to make:
It's a medium sized square card, topped with a leftover piece of rainbow paper that dates back to the year 'dot' and some more recent criss-cross paper. A strip of pre-punched border, flowers and sentiment from my stash - and the sentiment was backed with a little strip of a snippet - I saved the other half for another time. Waste not, want not!
The Josy Rose nail heads are my latest addition to Pixies Workshop - and the inspiration came mainly from Jules. She uses them so well on her cards and they are more understated and elegant for certain cards (go and see!!!) and, after I'd picked her brains, I plumped for
So, by the skin of my teeth, screeching in last minute (story of my life really) I'm entering this into:
Jules Crafty Snippet Challenge - Week 31
Hope you're having a great weekend!
Hello Di, thanks for your comment but I've already beaten you to it and discovered Jules - entered two cards already this week and added this one in to the mix today - just forgot to mention Jules in my post - now off to edit my post and repair the damage. Love your card BTW, isn't is amazing that you can keep a piece of paper for yonks and along comes a more recent piece that matches perfectly, as they do in your card - you couldn't have planned it! The nail heads look super - will investigate further at a later date when my bank account has recovered the latest damage done to it ... all in the name of Art of course:) Elizabeth xReplyDelete
Snort! Any excuse to buy more craft stash! I do recommend the nail heads plus hot fixer and their service was very fast! I defy you to only buy a small selection of the colours Elizabeth - and how dumb of me, of course you'd already entered the snippets challenge. I have my potato head on today I think!! Di xxReplyDelete
Dear Mrs Potato Head . . . I love your snippets card and the nail heads!ReplyDelete

Hoot, hoot Sarn! You just make me laugh aloud! So, are you gonna show your results of today's crafty fun? I keep hopping over for a peek!! Di xxReplyDelete
Wow! I love this! It's amazing how those papers match so delightfully and everything came together so beautifully. Those nail heads are the perfect finishing touch.ReplyDelete
Hope things in your world will calm down soon.
So pleased you made it into the snippet playground on time .. .. there was still plenty of time until the bell rang though LOL!!!
Loving your snippet make. That rainbow paper looks delicious and matches your criss cross paper perfectly!!
Pleased you like the Nail Heads and the wand. You must count slower than I do .. I count to 14 LOL!!!
Thank you for sharing your lovely snippet make with everyone and I am sorry I haven't been around much this week. Things are a tad busy in the House of Hearts.
Love Jules xx
