And this next week we have another little prefect in the Playground helping me out, just as Eve did about a month ago, it's Sarn of Stamping for Pleasure!
I'm sure most of you know Sarn, she's a long term blogger and is tremendously talented - her work ranges from beautiful crisp and cleanly designed card making and associated card crafts through fabulous journaling and Sarntangling (her very own version of Zentangling) - not to mention recent forays into mixed media, with great results! Basically, if it can be tried, Sarn will have a go. She has Sarntangle digis for sale over on her blog and also designed and sold her own limited edition 'Sarntangle' stamps set - sorry though, they sold out like hot cakes!
Not only that, she's fun, funny, very supportive, wise when it's needed, crazy if that's what you need at the time and also fiercely loyal. Basically, an all round 'good egg' and I'm delighted to have her as a friend.
OK Sarn, send me the cheque now please :)
This is the lovely snippets card that Sarn made for us this week:
Here's a list of the 'ingredients':
- Memento ink in Tuxedo Black for flower image.
- SU Certainly Celery for zigzag lines.
- Promarkers in Tulip Yellow; Gold; Spice; Apple and Oatmeal.
- I coloured the edge of the mat in Gold to match the coloured image.
- Stamps: Woodware Clear Magic "Delicate Daisies" & zigzags from SU's "Work of Art".
- Foam pads to pop each flower head up.
Just as Eve did a few weeks ago, Sarn will be commenting on your entries this week and will also list her picks of the week for me. I'll still be peeking to see what's going on but it's a busy week for me so my time will be limited and Sarn's offer couldn't have come at a better time.
If any of you fancy being prefect for a week, it entails making a snippets card (you don't have to provide a prize though as the toy box is pretty full here), commenting on all the week's entries - and making up a list of your picks of the week. The rest is down to me still.
Of course I'll be watching for any new playmates and sorting out any linking issues this coming week - and will do the usual Sunday post with my snippets card etc. etc. for the following week.
And onto this week's picks:
I'm sorry to cut this weeks picks short there, still struggling with the back and sitting still typing for too long isn't helping. Every single entry deserved being a weekly pick and I do so hope you'll peek at last week's thumbnails and perhaps hop over to check a few entries out. We get some terrific ideas in the Playground for sure!
And we do have one new playmate joining us this week:
Time to choose the winner of the Molly Bloom 'Herb Box' stamp and the Inkylicious Butterflies (Flutters 2) stamp set. - and the winner is:
The prize for this coming week has been chosen and donated by the lovely Sarn - and it's the fabulous Woodware Clear Magic 'Delicate Daisies' stamp set - which comes with its own sentiment:
The Snippets Challenge will run for one week and the Playground gates will close at 11am UK time on Saturday 12th September. The gates will open again at midnight UK time on the same day.
Maximum of three entries and please say in a comment if you wish to play and be a possible winner of the prize. Do remember that you should also link back to the Playground in your blog post to be eligible for the draw.
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 :)
Edit: I had wondered if our playmate Cornelia was away on holiday as she usually comes to play each week - turns out she has an eye problem (retinal tear) and is having to take it very easy right now. Do please join me in sending her our love and get well wishes - hope you're back with us soon Cornelia!
Di and of course, Parsnip!
