Spring Snippets

Morning everyone, hope you've all had a great bank holiday weekend. We've not had any snow but it is very miserable and wet today so more indoors playtime again.

I'm hopping over to see the Playmates with this card for Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge which was made entirely from snippets. The stamp is Penny Black 'Tulip Queue' and is actually larger than you see here but the piece of card I stamped on was a small square snippet. I coloured with my usual Promarkers and tied a leftover piece of ribbon around it. The piece of gingham paper was another snippet as was the kraft card I used to die-cut the butterfly. Just a couple of gems and some pearls and job done as I decided to leave it without a sentiment so I'll be able to use it for any occasion.

and here's the stamp full size

I'm also entering this in

Well that's it from me for today, I'm off to see what other goodies the online shops can tempt me to buy - well with miserable weather like this we have to cheer ourselves up somehow and I've already eaten my choccie eggs! Thanks for popping by and I hope you have a fun day, whatever you may be getting up to.

  11. Well I suppose I am biased in saying a super image because I have this stamp and will be using it in a couple of weeks. I love the way you have printed it here and it looks great, even with not the full image. Fab card.
    Unfortunately we had the snow.

  15. Beautiful card and most gorgeous stamp.x💖 [Aussie aNNie's Blog]

  16. Fabulous card Andrea - and the added ribbon is such a pretty finishing touch! I was gawping at all my ribbon the other day half thinking I never use it and therefore should dispose of it. Then I see a card like this and realise what a difference it can make. No wonder this place if bursting at the the seams! But, we're off to Germany to see the grand kids in Summer and, as we have a very generous luggage allowance, am hoping to take an extra wheelie case full of craft stuff for them. And then one of them can use the case for holidays. That's the plan anyhow!
