Pixies Crafty Snippets Week 42 and you can slap my wrists!

Oh dear, I just had no time at all to do the roll call this week. Out today (as most of you know - and it took me all day yesterday to prepare, these crops are hard work!!), busy all day Sunday and then it's Len's Birthday on Monday - so will have to skip this week I'm afraid :(

But, there's a new Mr Linky below and the winner of the bow maker is (drum roll please) - a Playmate who has been with us from the start:

As always, I wish everyone could be a winner - but Sarn's name was pulled out of the sun hat first. Well done - now show us yer bows girl!!

Here's my card for today:

Back ASAP!

If you wanna join in the Playground and keep using up those snippets - the Playground is open all of this coming week but it will close on Saturday 20th October  at noon, UK time. Mr Linky is below as usual.....and there should be a roll call:). 


The only conditions to playing nicely in the Snippet Playground are that your card (or anything else you wish to bring here to show) must be made by using up snippets (card, paper, lace and ribbon are all fine), and a link back to here in your own blog posting will mean that you'll be included in the Weekly Roll Call. Oh, and no nipping or hair pulling of course :)


  1. WAHOOOOOOO I won, I won! Thank you SOOO much Di. Oh gosh, now this means I really have no excuse not to put r-r-r-ribbon on my cards . . . I will have to use some up! GULP!

    Have a wonderful WOYWW meet up today.

  6. I always used me fork like. Hugs Mrs A.

  7. Return to the Barracks on your return you are so funny! congrat's to Sarn, you will love it l have a bow maker they can be really helpful although Di you did give instructions to use a folk for smaller bows as l can recall did Mrs A see your Tutorial?!! have a great Sunday xx

  8. Hi Di, hope you had a great day and not at all surprised you couldn't do the roll call this week, you sound rushed off your feet. That card must have taken you forever too :))

    Congratulations to Sarn - we can expect to see bows on all her cards now :)

    Happy birthday wishes to Len and I hope you have a lovely time celebrating.

    Hugs, Elizabeth xx

  9. Your card is extraordinary, Di! So much detail and you can't ever go wrong with a classic black and white!

    Hope you had a total blast today with all your friends at the crop!!

  10. Well Di - my favourite card of all time!!!

    Hugs Sue Pxxx

  11. Snort! Your card is absolutely perfick (best Sam impression here!) and well done to Sarn on winning.... she'll have to use some ribbon now, double snort! It's nice to be back Miss, off to see what's new in the Playground.


  12. Hi Di

    Pleased to see there is a big smiley face on your card!! It means your are having fun!!

    Sounds like you have had a brilliant (but busy)few days.

    Well done Sandra on your win. Looking forward to seeing lots of ribbons and bows.

    Love Jules xx

  13. Oh Di - I love that card, I hope you are going to enter it into a few challenges. I'm sure there are a couple of monochrome ones knocking about...

    Have a huge confession... I didn't realise you did a card challenge - i've often seen our Brenda enter, but didn't realise it was yours until I took more notice of the names of the challenges she was entering! Well, I tend to use loads of my scraps (when I remember) rather than printing or cutting into something new (I print 99% of my design papers).

    Hope you are well, hope you had a great time on Saturday and have a lovely day tomorrow... (woops - it's actually today)!

    Big hugs

  14. Congrats to Miss Sarn. And thanks for sharing this lovely card with the smiley face, and your AWOL message. I think I'm going AWOL here very my recliner!!! Happy Monday. Hugs

  15. Well done Sarn on your win. Well deserved- you might need quite a few bows to put round the neck of our new playmate. Hope you had a fab time, Di, and don't put me in detention for bringing a pet to school!

  16. well done to you Sarn!! so very pleased as you are generous too so a worthy winner! looking forward to your Snoopy's winging their way here, Shaz in Oz.xx

  17. Did you see me sneaking around your posts. Sorry I didn't spend time commenting...too busy looking, and your cards are beautiful as always. See you on the playground.

  18. Another ickle snippet. Hugs Mrs A.

  19. Di, I think that's such a witty card! A great idea, I'm smiling all over my face!

    love Mags B x

  20. Whew, think I managed to make the deadline. I was a little ambitious as I can't sit and sort of lean forward to work on a card for too long at a time. Thought I would never get any finished...2 down...4 still to go!
    So here's one for the playground!

  21. ha ha am swing int through the gate with barely a a minute to spare how utterly typical of me !!! out f bed late again.. anyway made it Di!! almost - widget expires in 69 mins so really a ton of time! Shaz in oz.x

  22. Phew! Just made it! Only a few mins to spare!
    Hettie and Fergus!
