So today, my snippets card is a Christmas one:
- 8" x 8" square white card blank
- white card stock embossed using the fabulous Embossalicious 'Swirl Corner 6" x 6" folder
- Woodware stamp called 'Patchwork Dove', paper pieced with snippets from LOTV's 'Winter Wishes' paper pad and just a tickle of Wink of Stella on the olive leaves (sigh to partly disguise that I smudged a bit)
- one whole sheet, shock, horror, of backing paper from the same LOTV paper pad
- SU's 'Crumb Cake' card stock for layering - sigh, cut into two fresh sheets thereby creating yet more snippets so in fact I used less snippets than I created with this card!
- sentiment is from the Creative Expressions 'Joy to the World' sentiments set. Wow, this set is terrific - it's unmounted grey rubber and you can snip it apart and mix and match part sentiments beautifully. Oh, and I stamped using a Memento 'Toffee Crunch' ink pad
And as luck would have it, the current challenge over at Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge is 'something beginning with B' - a dove is a bird and the card has a few blues - double qualification :)
So that's my offering - now let's take a peek at a few of yours. As always, not an easy choice and I ended up with a very long short-list so used a pin - I hope no-one is disappointed if they aren't a 'peek' this week. You really are going from strength to strength girls!
First of all, we have a few 'banners' cards and I think this is such a clever way to use up snippets, here's some examples:
And now we have two new playmates:
And Carol Gill joined us waving this terrific card. I did giggle at the froggie - plus love the rainbow theme!
I hope you both come back to play soon :)
And onto the draw for the winner of the Memory Box 'Grand Happy Birthday' die:
OK, so perhaps you're getting the drift that maybe, just maybe, it's a good idea to think about Christmas a little bit ahead of time? I've picked some Christmas cards today, and of course my own snippets card is a Christmas one. Can you guess where this is going? Yup, this week's prize is all for Christmas - in fact I lie as part of the prize is for all year round - but we haven't had a Christmassy prize since 29th December so here goes:
Lynn. Of course this folder would be great all year round and don't fret about it being a 6" x 6" one, I only have a little Cuttlebug here and mine went through no problem.
As usual, the snippets challenge will run for one week and the Playground gates will close at 11am UK time on Saturday 10th May and will open again at midnight UK time on the same day. Maximum of three entries and please say 'No thank you' in a comment if you wish to still play but not be the winner of the prize. The prize IS all one bumper bundle, but if you only fancy one or more of the contents just say so in a comment and I'll do a second draw if you win for anything that's not on your wish list. But, you can have the lot if you wish :)
Mr Linky is below - please let me know if you have any problems linking, I can sort it out for you quite quickly and am always happy to do so.
Have a great week - keep those snippets coming :) We beat 70 entries last week, wahoo!!
