As I said last Sunday, this weekend is/was the village carnival and so the Playground post is split in two as I was out playing on Saturday. Edit - it was a brilliant day, wall to wall sunshine, good friends, a lot of laughs and we came home tired and a little bit sunkissed - photos may follow but I haven't checked them out yet :) Here we go with my snippets card, this week's prize and a new Mr Linky - tomorrow I'll post the weekly picks and the result of the prize draw.
First, my snippets card - made very quickly on Friday:
- 6" x 6" square white card blank
- Unity Stamps Itty Bitty 'Family is Forever' stamp set, Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink pad and a snippet of blue card. Die cut the image and matching sentiment with an oval Nesites die and then layered it onto a snippet of SU's 'Real Red' card stock, die cut with a shallow scallops oval Nesties die
- the multi-coloured spotty paper is a whole sheet (slap my wrists!) and the other patterned papers were snippets, all from the 'Quilting Bee' paper pad made by My Mind's Eye - and another snippet of 'Real Red' sneaked in to frame the 'patchwork' panel
Told you it was quick - and easy! Those little birds remind me of the sparrows who inhabit one of the big Playground bushes here, chattering away to one another :)
Next up is the prize on offer this week:
Shaz in Oz. Plus, a Kanban football stamp set, very topical right now with the World Cup going on (and on, and on, and on - sigh - thankfully Len and Parsnip aren't footie fans either) - and the set was kindly donated by Karen P.
So there you have it for today.
As usual, the snippets challenge will run for one week and the Playground gates will close at 11am UK time
on Saturday 28th June and will open again at
midnight UK time on the same day. We'll be back to a full post of course.
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. Remember too, if you only want one or other of the stamp sets just say and if your name pops out I'll do a second draw for the other set.
Mr Linky is below - please
let me know if you have any problems linking, it's easy for me to sort out so don't struggle on alone :)
Have a great week!
Di (and a wave from Parsnip)
