'It's All Fiddle Fart'. She really does come up with some great ideas and I've followed her blog from waaay back before this blog was even thought about. I truly do think you should go and see what she gets up to.
- 6" x 6" square cream card stock
- another piece of the same cream card stock, layered onto a square of SU's 'Always Artichoke' card stock
- a snippet of brown card, die cut using the totally fabulous Memory Box 'Arboscello Tree' die - it's 3.2" x 3.7" in size
- seven different coloured snippets of thin card (ha, that didn't make much of a dent in the ever-expanding snippets folder), all punched out with a small Tonic punch flower punch - approximately 1cm across
- seven different colours of sparkly 3mm gems
- a big dollop of patience/OCD
I adore this die - if you Google it there are tons of way to use it. I got carried away and really covered the lovely branches but less is as good or even better. Plain white on a sympathy card, a bit of glitter for Christmas, more than one to make a little copse of trees, the list goes on. I like the idea of leaving it plain and just drawing a little line with a single heart dangling from a branch.
OK, so this week's show and tell - which seemed to stream in at the end of the week:
And finally, Tara made this really amusing snippets card (could have been some of us last weekend girls!) - just look at the paper piecing! Great use of snippets.
I say it every week, and make no apologies either - each and every snippets make is gorgeous and I wish I had time to cover every single one. You can do your bit by going to last week's Mr Linky and having a little hop around.
And a big welcome to Max who played along for the first time this week too!
OK, drum roll - onto the draw for the lovely La Blanche stamp - and the winner is:
Scrappymo - aka Maureen
Again, it took me three goes to find someone who hadn't said no thank you. I do know that Mo said she loved this stamp so it's going to a good home!
Maybe this week's little prize will be no surprise -yup, it's an Arboscello Tree die of your very own. Maybe I'm inflicting my own taste on you at times 'cos often when I find something I love - two fall into my shopping basket! One for me and one for the snippets toy box:
The Playground is open all of this coming week, will close on Saturday 27th April at noon UK time and Mr Linky is below as usual. Just enter a snippets make into the Playground this week and I'll do a draw after the Playground closes next Saturday.
As usual I am asking for a snippets make please, maximum of three entries and please say 'No thank you' in a comment if you wish to still play but not be a winner of the die.
Enjoy the rest of the week! My back feels a lot better already, fingers crossed.
