As this publishes I should be playing at my old School Reunion in Stratford Upon Avon - not sure about dancing on the tables this time though! Len and Parsnip are 'home alone' and probably having a great time without me :)
We have another Guest Designer this fortnight, and it's Megan of 'My Merry Card Corner'. We have not one, but two, snippets cards from her:
I have been trying to have a clean up of my desk and make use of the large volume of snippety bits currently holding a take over bid of my desk top, I found this strip of paper and decided to make two cards to use it up, I dug around in my box of snippets for some co-ordinating card to layer the bits on and came up with these two designs, I have also been trying out some of the super cheap dies I have bought online from China and I will not be accepting any responsibility for enabling any of you!!!!
Something Megan says that's so true - snippets do make a bid to take over the place!
Let's move onto my picks from this past fortnight - tough call as always! I say that every fortnight and it's so, so true! To be honest, each one of this fortnight's picks is worthy of a Gold Star, so ladies do feel free to pick up your badge from the RH sidebar!
Vinita made this fabulous Mothers Day card - as I said on her blog, it's jaw-droppingly gorgeous! What a wonderful Mothers Day card - and so much fabulous detail as well. The huge pink rose she made for the front is stunning - and there's lots of detail about the whole process over on Vinita's blog too.
That's my three picks - I do hope they will inspire you as well girls. They're extremely detailed pieces of work, that's the 'theme' I homed in on this fortnight. Of course we had loads of fabulous ways to use up snippets, so I do recommend that you grab a cup of coffee and spend some time visiting blogs - the thumbnails with links are always there for you to look back over.
59 of you joined in this past fortnight - with one new Playmate:
Welcome to the Snippets Playground and I do hope you return to play again soon.
Well done April - can you please drop me an email with your address in and I'll post your prize off as soon as possible once I return from my 'jollies'! As you're such a cat lover I think you'll be extra pleased with Mr Random! My email address is on the right hand side bar.
Keep those snippets entries coming girls, you still have a week left to play HERE remember! And the prize is a W Plus 9 'Doodle Buds' stamps set and the Avery Elle 'Postage Elle-Ments' die set.
Love from the little white peril - and of course from me too
