Well here I am on Week 24 of my mission to rid the craft pod of those lovely snippets that keep piling up .. .. but which are far to beautiful to simply throw away.
Lots of people kept me company this week .. .. thank you all ladies xx
But more about all of my playmates later.
First of all here are my snippet creations for this week.
The first one is a cheat because I made it yesterday, ready for my little baby boy to give his Dad today for Father's Day.
But the other two I got up bright and early to make
So what about all of those lovely playmates .. .. well there are so many it like having a little party !! LOL!!!
Di played along and shared lots of cards and inspiration - and all such beautiful colours. Di's cards always look so lovely and neat .. .. I am sure you will agree.
Sandra - a regular snippetier - shared a whole mountain of creations this week .. .. and how wonderful they all were too. In fact at the beginning of the week Sandra set out all the snippets she wanted to use up. What a snippet star!!! You can find all of the wonderful work and inspiration here, here, here AND here. There must be a definite lack of snippets in Sandra's craft space now .. .. and I have even heard rumours of her possibly being on the receiving end of some annoymous envelopes full of someone elses's snippets (that would be Di's LOL!!!)
Brenda B played along and showcased three gorgeous cards too .. .. proving you don't need to use many crafty supplies to achieve beautiful cards. Gorgeous work!!
Lisa joined in too .. .. but was a bit worried she had broken the rules in using a coloured image. But hey .. don't worry about rules .. the only rules are the ones I have given myself!! I don't allow "myself" to use coloured images because I would spend too long sitting colouring when I should be using up my snippets .. .so the only images I use are ones I can paper piece (and so use up more paper bits) or those that don't need any colouring at all.
If you play along you can use up your snippets in any way you like .. ... but I wouldn't like to think you had made a little bonfire of them .. .. that would be sad and very upsetting !! LOL!!!
So thank you Lisa for playing along and showing us your lovely creation .. .. and it was a gorgeous image too!!
Brenda showcased a whole range of beatuiful creations using her snippets .. .. each one being just full of inspiration for using up our snippets. Be careful though because Brenda shows you new stamps and stash that you might want to buy .. .. you have to be very strong when you visit this blog!!!! It comes with a Bank Balance Health Warning!!!
Tricia also joined in with a whole range of cards and gave me some lovely ideas for future snippet use. Such beautiful colours and techniques. There is some great doodling going on here and a great frame idea. Thanks Tricia xx
Doreen joined in yesterday too with a beautiful card that was paperpieced beautifully. So much loveliness to see on this creation .. I love it!!!
Lynne came along as a "last minute" entry with a lovely Father's Day card. Great way to use up your snippets in blocks and a very nice sentiment stamp came into play here too. Lovely and neat Lynne!!
So what a lot of playmates!!! Thank you ladies xxxx
Just think how many snippet makes have been created here .. .. loads and loads!!!
So that is me for today .. .. Hubby has just gone to deliver all the food I have prepared as we are having a little Father's Day party over at my baby Son's house. All the family together .. .. lovely!!
Hubby is then coming back here and then we will have a taxi so we can have a little drink to celebrate a special day.
There is a little music festival being held on the local Rugby Club ground and my Son's flat overlooks it .. .. so we are going to enjoy that whilst eating and drinking with all the windows open. Tonight there is a Queen Tribute band on so that should be good.
My lovely Sis and her chappie are coming to join us too.
So time to get myself in gear and I will catch you again tomorrow .. .. when I promise to do my catching up in blogland.
So if you fancy playing along at all over the course of the next week then feel free to link below so we can all come and see your lovely creations.
