Hi there! Well, it's a whole week since the Weeks 208/209 Celebration Giveaway started off, and we still have almost a whole week left to run. Loads of you have been visiting to add your snippets makes and also to say yes please to the prizes offered so far.
of you have already entered three times but I propose to keep the limit at a maximum of three entries to make it fairer for peeps who might not have much free time to craft over the Holidays.
I think this is one of my favourite snippets cards of the fortnight - I really love the stamp, as well as the stitched dies:
- 5" x 7" white card blank - needed to be a bigger card as the stamp/image is a good size and I also didn't want to swamp the amusing backing paper too much
- snippets of pale blue card, one as a backing layer just slightly smaller than the card blank
- a piece of blue patterned paper from the LOTV 'Twas the Night' paper pad
- the fabulous image, if you like 'cute' of course, is Penny Black's 'Xmas Crafts' and was stamped onto a snippet of white card using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink then coloured with Pro markers
- die cut the image using a die from the Lil' Inkers 'Stitched Rectangles' set, and popped it onto a larger layer of pale blue card - also die cut using the same set of dies then glued the image layer in place on the card front
- die cut two snowflakes from snippets of mauve and pale blue card using the Whimsy 'Layered Snowflakes' die set, tickled them with clear Wink of Stella and then stuck them in place on one corner of the image rectangle
- last touch, a pale blue pearl in the centre of the snowflake
Sorry the photo is rubbish - at last am able to sit in the craft room, just for very short periods, and actually do a tiny bit of crafting! I can't tell you just how wonderful that feels - but, I can't control the weather and lighting so this card had to be photographed using my desk top daylight lamp :(
These are today's prizes:
As usual, just add a comment
underneath this post if you'd like to be in the draw for today's prize - or
even for just part of the prize goodies (the stamp or the set of dies) same as I used, just say so in
your comment. I can split them if you wish although it's one whole prize if that's what you'd like.
At the end of all of the celebrations I'll do a massive draw session
using Mr Linky - which is on the main snippets post HERE - so you do
have to have entered at least one snippets make to be in with a chance
:) Maximum of three entries please.
Hope you've all had a happy and peaceful Christmas and that Santa was
good to you. Parsnip snuck downstairs in the middle of Christmas Night
and totally gorged himself on a big tub of Quality Street chocolates -
oh boy, he was moaning and groaning for England all yesterday :)

Eep! Adorable stamp and card, Di! I just made a card using the little sewmeister running on a spool of thread. I think it's spose to be a mouse, but me and mine are calling it a hamster because it looks so like Hammy (if you ignore the tail!). I'm delighted to hear that you are finally able to sit for spurts and be happy creating!! Prayers that healing and wellness continue apace!! Thanks for all you are doing for this massive Playhouse event!! Happy New Year! Love and hugs, DarnellReplyDelete

Morning Di, gosh the wonderful prizes keep on coming. Poor Parsnip I hope he learnt his lesson!. Your card to so sweet and your daylight lamp saved the day...there is so little light at the moment. Yes please to the prizes, I do own some MB stitched rectangles but these look like slightly different sizes which would be sooo useful. I think that stitched dies really are the best!

Glad to hear you're managing to get about a bit and I hope Parsnip is fully recovered. Love this adorable image but after a lot of umming and aahing I decided to say no thanks as I know there are a lot of playmates who would love this xxReplyDelete
Yes please Miss!ReplyDelete
Mine! Mine! Mine!
I love the PB cuties and those stitched dies are at the very top of my wish list right now.
I love how you use them too and so very happy to hear you are starting to improve at last - wishing you a pain free New Year with lots of happiness Karen xx
Congratulations on having managed the playground for 4 years, a feat indeed, I'm sorry you have finally had to take to your bed, it was only a matter of time! Yes please to the dies only.ReplyDelete
Very cute creation. Blue is my favorite color and I love all the shades of it. Beautiful stamp so yes please for the prize (and I'd like to have _both_ of them if I am the lucky winners)ReplyDelete
Oh this is adorable, and your snowflake matches perfekt. Naughty Parsnip, hope he's over his belly ache, but best news is you can sit in your craft room a bit :). . Oh and a yes please, please xxxReplyDelete
Great to hear you are starting to get better at last and yes please to the lovely prizeReplyDelete
'A HUGE YES PLEASE'!!!!! for these prizes.

What lovely idea for the snippets - I have only just noticed its happening what with the in laws move just before Christmas etc. Please count my in for this prize hope you had a great christmas and have a lovely New Year xReplyDelete
Glad to read your foot is improving! What a great card, I like the background paper, LOVE the stamp (yes please for the draw, unless postage to Aus is too expensive, I understand) and LOOOOOVE the dies... they were on my Chrissie list, but I think Santa may have run out of room in his stocking by the time he got that far on the list and I didn't get them, sob, and I was good ALL YEAR too - just goes to show there's no future in being good, lol. So a "yes please" to enter the draw for the dies too, ta, Donna xxReplyDelete
