- a snippet of SU's 'Pool Party' card stock, folded to make a 5" x 5" card blank (so it was really a sizeable piece I found in the snippets folder but I make the 'rools', tee, hee)
- Penny Black's 'Soft Wings' stamp - stamped using Memento 'Teal Zeal', just off the edge of the card. Just a little bit of purple and yellow colouring using Whispers Markers - which I then tickled over with clear Wink of Stella
- the sentiment was also stamped using 'Teal Zeal' and the Winnie and Walter 'The Big, the bold and the Happy' stamp set
Super fast card as I said. I do love this stamp, it's very similar to SU's 'Swallowtail' butterfly stamp but only about two thirds of the size
Scampering quickly onto this week's Playground Picks:
Seeing the hedgie above, in case I forget to mention, Spike the Hedgehog is still visiting several times during the night to feed and have a drink but won't stand still once the light goes on outside and I appear waving a camera. Sigh :(
Only five picks this week - out of 50 fabulous makes! It's busy here (Saturday as I'm typing) and after finishing and scheduling this I need to run out and do the weekly shop as I'm out playing on Sunday (Art Stamps at Newbury even though I already heard that it's not as good as usual from peeking at blogs, sigh). If you plan to go, I'll probably be the one wrecking the displays (and perhaps beating up what sounds like hapless new organisers) even my partner in crime (Mrs A) can't make it this time.
We had one new playmate this week too:
And the winner of the draw for last week's Penny Black 'Tree Treasure' stamp is:
Well done Karen! Can you please let me have your address and the prize will be posted to you ASAP!
And, of course, this week's prize is linked to my snippets card:
As usual, the snippets challenge will run for one week and the Playground gates will close at 11am UK time on Saturday 12th July 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.
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! I've noticed a few more Christmas cards arriving in the Playground, it's almost as if once we reach the middle of the year a teensy bit of anxiety sets in :)
