- 6" x 6" square white card stock
- all patterned papers came from the selection Kay sent me, there is one full sheet and the rest are snippets carefully squirrelled away in the packet
- stamped image is Woodware's 'Patchwork Owl', the branch and leaves were coloured with Pro Markers and the body was paper pieced, Glossy Accents on the eyes really brought him alive :) I did the background in the usual way using a template, TH 'Tumbled Glass' ink and a mini duster brush. The image was die cut with a Nesties hexagon die and mounted onto a hand cut snippet of plain pink card
- sentiment is from the fabulous Hero Arts 'Live Life' set, stamped in black Memento then trimmed and popped onto a snippet of pink card
- ribbon came from the ribbon box which was then finished off with a little owl charm, tied on using iridescent cord
So, onto this week's little 'picks, typing this on Saturday before going out to party so it's a bit of a rush through I'm afraid:
AND, although it isn't a snippets card you truly ought to see this next card made by Viv - absolutely STUNNING! I think it should walk away with more than one prize from the challenges Viv entered - particularly the Cuttlebug Mania Challenge!
As always, each and every one of you made some fabulous snippets cards this week - to check them out just go here.
We have two new playmates this week - a huge welcome to Christine and KathyK. Hope you come back to play again!
And the winner of last week's prize (the set of leaf dies plus the Christmas sentiments) is:
And, this week's prize came about due to Dumbo here losing a favourite sentiment stamp from a set on the desk. After hunting high and low I ordered another set as my waste bin had been emptied AND it was the day after the wheelie bin had been emptied so I thought it was gone forever. You just know what's coming dontcha :( Yup, the day following me placing the order, the naughty little stamp turned up, firmly clinging to the back of a glossy card.
But, my temporary loss is the Playground's gain, so this week's prize is that new stamp set - Hero Arts 'Live Life', and I used a sentiment from my own set on today's snippets card:
I still promise to do that grab button ASAP for the Playground BTW. And for anyone who was waiting for some of the Victoria Sponge Cake I made during the week, yup, the two-legged mouse made short work of it.

Hi Di, I came over after you left such a nice comment on my blog - great cards on your blog! I am just curious - what is your challenge all about? I can't find any rules....ReplyDelete

Very sweet Owly snippets card Di. He did fly a long way didn't he?ReplyDelete
Loving all the pretty showcased cards.
FAB stamp set to give away - one of my faves (I already have it).
Back again with my Snippets Entry. Got this stamp set already and LOVE IT, so I'm saying no thanks to the prize.ReplyDelete
I love that cute Owl Di and how you've paper-pieced him looks fabulous. Been there and done that with thinking you've thrown something essential away only to find it weeks later. I have a habit of putting things in a 'safe place' then can't remember where the 'safe place' is! AGE arrrrgh! I've just submitted my snippets link hope it counts being CAS - never thought I'd say it but I'm loving CAS. Sarah xReplyDelete
Wahey!!!! Thank you so much (to the widget thingy) for picking me! I am really really chuffed to bits! So glad I used those snippets for the parcels now!ReplyDelete
As for your latest card Di, I love the paper pieces owl, he really is a corker!
Great design altogether.
Hugs to you Sue Pxxx (dancing away as I trype!!)
Super little owl Miss and love that paper piecing. Hugs Mrs A.ReplyDelete

Hi Miss Di and fellow playmatesReplyDelete
Hope you are all having a fabby weekend.
Loving your owl Miss .. .. looks like lots of snippets met their doom on this great creation.
Wonderful prize too. You are very generous!
Have a good week.
Love Jules xx
I love your owl. He is so cute. I know what you mean about losing stamps etc. I now have two brick stencils because I lost one and thought I hadn't bought it - dohhhh. Reminder to self - check what you have before you order. Thank you for your lovely comments about my Clarity cards. I really enjoyed doing them. xx MaggieReplyDelete
Hello Di, your owl card is super cute - great paper piecing, and glad to here he has made it all those miles to Mexico :) Many thanks for showcasing my sunny yellow card ... apparently summer is no longer changing to autumn, it's gone altogether! Oh, and I have been known to order the occasional item twice too ... it's a senior hazard :)) Congratulations to Sue. Hugs to you and kisses to Parsnip, Elizabeth xxReplyDelete
So much gorgeous crafting including your snippets card, Di - how anyone has time to linger on the swings I don't know - lol! xReplyDelete
It's amazing what astonishing and beautiful cards can be made with snippets. These are so inspirational!ReplyDelete
And your owl card is just adorable - what lovely colours! Go, you!!!
love Mags B x
I'm so glad I got to play. I confess that I did have different snippets in mind to use but got distracted by the lovely piece of paper I found. There's always next time for the snippets I had in mind. I love your owl card with all the paper piecing. Such a happy imagine and happy colors filled with happiness!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous makes this last week. I shall try better to get round to see them this week. Never had a moment to myself last week!ReplyDelete
I love your paper-pieced owl! I love that it's within a big hexie too and what beautiful clouds behind him! Super cute and "CHARM-ing" card! Thanks for including my card among the notables this week! I'm truly honored and flattered to be in such talented company!ReplyDelete
Sometimes I don't like owls! Some of them are downright scary looking! But not this sweetie! I love the patchwork look and the owl charm is delightful!ReplyDelete
Just submitted another entry Di ... feeling guilty about yesterdays but not sure this one is much better - can you tell I'm liking CAS right now??? xxReplyDelete
Well!!!! I am beside myself!! Two mentions from Miss this week??? Honoured indeedy!!! LOLReplyDelete
Lovin' the Owl Di.. been tidying the desk so have some scrappy bits to play with - be back later with the makes..
Lovely showcased cards this week too!
Great challenge - you'll have me now as a regular.... So glad I have discovered you. Thanks for the chance to win!ReplyDelete
Di, your pink patterned paper-pieced owl is genius! And with the charm added? Double genius!!ReplyDelete
Thank you for the great highlights. I know it terribly hard to pick, but I do like this new way of just highlighting a few with the photos. Some weeks we don't all get round to everyone, so it's nice to get that spotlight for the spotlighted and the spotlightees. Huh? You know what I mean!
No thank you to that fabulous prize! Have a great week!! Hugs, Darnell (Please tell Mrs. A that I'm sorry I put her pants on the Don Key. I had naught idea she was going off to pick berries!)
As promised Di....but like a number 99 bus there is not just one but 3 :-)ReplyDelete
Cute owl card, I have this stamp (never used) and can see how great it will be for paper piecing, thank you for the inspiration : )ReplyDelete
Glad I found your blog and challenge, definitely need to start to use more snippets.
Ooo yay! I got to play! Will be checking out everyone's creations over the next day or two. Gorgeous picks though Di! Karen xxReplyDelete
Lovely gallery picks miss, will have to try that white card idea - it's stunning!ReplyDelete
Way to go Sue P!ReplyDelete
Finally dropping by to submit a card...will pop by to finish visiting everyone tonight when the big guy crashes!
Popping in again Di, not sure when the gates close, must be soon!(that dinner looks delicious too, much more interesting than the apricot chicken I've got in the oven!) Cathy xReplyDelete
I love your owl card it has a lovely patchwork theme to it - perfect for snippets!
I'm sorry that I'm late AGAIN! will try harder next week.
Thank you for highlighting my card last week - I'll leave my apple on your desk!! LOL
Hope you have a lovely weekend. xx
