Anyhow, here's my snippets card for today:
- 5.5" x 5.5" square white card blank
- all papers are from the 'Me to You' 'Spring Chic' paper pad - a great pad as it's double sided and I did sneak in almost a full sheet of lemon as the main backing frame but all the rest were snippets tucked into the pad using my new storage system - shown here
- the image is by Wild Rose Studio called 'Birthday Girl', a gift from Sam when we met up with ScrappyMo last Summer. (More of that later in this post!!) Stamped with SU 'Smoky Grey', coloured with Pro Markers and the little girl's top and the tablecloth were paper pieced
- the lace 'belly band' (that always makes me giggle!) was punched using Martha' Stewart's 'Vintage Lace' edge punch and topped with a piece of pink ribbon
- sentiment is a pre-loved SU one, stamped with SU 'Smoky Slate' and then punched with SU's 'Label - Curly' punch
- the flowers were die cut with one of the very first die sets I ever bought, and still a great favourite - made by Joy!, ref. 6002/024 - and topped with self-adhesive pearls. Funny though, the pink gingham paper I used is a perfect match to the other pinks in the card, yet it looks mauve in the photo :)
And straight onto this week's picks:
Gosh I do so hope none of you girls have been affected by the awful floods down this way - not to mention the frightening gale force winds plus the heavy snow over 'the pond' and bad weather elsewhere. Mother Nature is sure going through a bad bout of PMT right now:(
So that was a quick scamper this week - as always you all made such beautiful stuff it was very hard to choose.
And we also have a new Playmate - please will you welcome Janeen who brought this lovely card to show - and also hopped back again later in the week so I guess we didn't scare her off too much!
And now the winner of last week's prize of the sentiments set and the rose stamp:
This coming week's prize is, as almost always, linked to today's snippets card.
Scrappy Mo. It was the day we three playmates met up last year and went to Flutterbys Craft Store - and both the little scallywags sneaked off and bought these for prizes :) Thank you girls!
The snippets challenge will run for one week and the Playground gates will close at 11am UK time on Saturday 22nd February 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.
Both items are one prize but can you please say if you aren't playing for either of the items in this week's prize 'cos then I could do a second draw for whatever it is the first prize winner doesn't want.
Please NEVER be afraid to say you're just playing for fun - it doesn't offend me at all, and the Playground is first and foremost for us to have fun, the prizes are just a thank you for playing :)
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.
It's lovely to see so many of you playing along in Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge as well! Have a great week and hope to see you in the Playground - bring your wellies (if it wasn't so very sad that might have been a funny).
STOP PRESS! Our little Playmate Victoria became a first time Mummy to a darling little baby girl - for more info. please look HERE. No name as yet, but what a little sweetie, can't you just smell the baby powder - many congratulations and she is absolutely adorable!! Love and hugs from us all in the Playground :)
SECOND STOP PRESS: If you check this more recent post, you'll see that I have one of the 'two weeks' thingies running. What you can win and how to be in with a chance is all there.
