Gosh I was lucky to have a Guest Designer this time around, it had totally slipped my mind - thankfully my choice was able to oblige. And it's Em of 'Creative Em' - who made this brilliant snippets card:
And this is what Em said about the card, but do hop over to her blog for more detail and also to say a 'Hello' please:
Dies are from Spellbinders, Die'Sire and Creative Expressions and the aperture is backed with a snippet too.
And, here's a photo of Em, another lady with a mischievous twinkle about her:
Look at this:
How about that then? Not only a squirrel, but a red one. And they move so fast too!
Thank you so much Em for making such a stunning snippets card as our Guest Designer this fortnight, and also for stepping in at such short notice. Saved my bacon!
In future I'll make a point of emailing for a GD as soon as the interim post (like this one) is published as it really isn't fair on any of you. Normally I'm in reasonably good time - and in fact if this happens again I'll most likely just have a week minus a GD rather than mess people around.
So, let's move onto my picks from this past fortnight - tough call as always! In the end I opted for three picks which I reckon any one of you can CASE fairly easily with goods you have to hand. It doesn't mean no work of course - just that the inspiration is there for you to have a play:
First of all, we do have a Gold Star winner this week - and I'm sure you'll agree that this card is such a worthy entry:
That's my three picks - I do hope they will inspire you as well girls.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. For this fortnight I homed in on three ways to use snippets in a sort of geometrical way - but, as you all know, the possibilities are endless.
Numbers are looking good in the Playground, 70 of you joined in this past fortnight - with no new Playmates.
I'm sorry if anyone feels that I should already have a note of your address if you've been a previous winner by the way. Asking you to email me does confirm that I have an up to date address - and that you haven't changed your minds about the prize of course :)
Keep those snippets entries coming girls, you still have a week left to play HERE remember! And the prize is a popular one, a diagonal stripes cover up die plus a Memory Box sentiment die.
I'm finally off for a hospital visit at Rheumatology this coming week - but am not holding my breath that they'll be any help at all with the back problem. Murphy's Law as well - this latest flare-up is subsiding again down to a bearable level. I doubt if I'll be entering any limbo dancing competitions just yet though!
Love from the little white peril - and of course from me too
