Lovebird Snippets

Hi everyone, Sorry I've been such a bad blogger this past fortnight, I really don't know where the days are going to.... we're well into February and I've only made one card and not even managed to get time to hop around Blogland to visit you all. Hopefully the clocks will slow down a bit next week and I'll be able to catch up with everyone.

Anyway here's my card using some of my very old stash and snippets of card, paper and ribbon. I had 3 strips of the paper so matted the widest onto a strip of white card and then stuck it to the base card with the thinner strips tucked underneath. The image is a Sylvia Zet Hobby House topper cut with a Tim Holtz oval die matted onto the next size up oval and from a snippet of ribbon I made a bow and wrapped the leftover bit around the larger oval and under the image. Then to finish I added some flowers. So my new resolution is to use up all my old toppers and flowers as well as all the tiny lengths of ribbon I have lying around.

I'm entering this in the following challenges

Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use your snippets'

Allsorts challenge 'love is in the air'

Die Cut Divas challenge 'love is in the air'

Thanks for popping by today and I hope you all have a super weekend
