250th Week of Snippets

I wasn't there at the start of it all but I have tried to enter each week since I came across this super challenge over at Pixie's Snippets Playground. It's the same perfect challenge theme each week which is to use snippets on your creation (so anyone can enter as I know every crafter in Blogland owns at least one box of leftover snippets) and you also get to hang out with a lovely fun bunch of playmates. Miss Di is in charge of us all and she also has the lovely little Parsnip to help her - although he can be bribed to turn a blind eye to some of the shenanigans. As it's a celebration week I'm sure there'll be a few bottles of hooch to be found hidden in the Treehouse and I think I may have heard rumours of Mrs A organizing a 'who can find the best use for a plastic carrier bag' contest !

So here is my snippet card using a piece of leftover hammered card which I used for the base, a leftover snippet from a previously embossed 8x8 inch kraft card (a Die'Sire Embossalicious folder), a TH Crazy Bird stamped and die-cut from a snippet of card then coloured with Promarkers and googly eyes added and to finish off I stamped a sentiment from the HLS 'Mix Mash' set.

As well as heading over to Pixie's Snippets Playground I'm also entering the following challenges

Passion for Promarkers challenge 'add texture'
Mod Squad challenge 'for the birds'
Cuttlebug Mania challenge 'thank you' (embossed and die-cut using Grand Calibur)
Addicted to Stamps and More challenge 'clean and simple'
Cute Card Thursday challenge 'anything goes'
Colour Crazy Craft challenge 'anything goes colouring'
Happy Little Stampers challenge 'anything goes with dies'

Enjoy what's left of the weekend and thanks for popping by today

Parsnip can definitely be 'persuaded' to turn a bling eye Andrea, he's very partial to those Percy Pigs from M&S, I always find they work a treat when I'm trying to smuggle something up to the tree house.

I do love your crazy bird and that music embossing folder, could do with that one as working on music related things for C&C at the moment and struggling.

This is a fabulous card, love the little birdie and you could have said " a little birdie told me that there could be some hooch around" would have fitted perfectly with the image.
Great EF too.
