I hope you are all having a good weekend. We have really enjoyed ours .. .. spending time with family is so special.
Big baby boy goes home at daft o'clock tomorrow .. .. but we have one last celebration before he goes .. .. it will be his birthday on Tuesday so we will be celebrating that tonight.
Not with pancakes!!!
We have eaten enough of those to last a year LOL!! In fact between the eleven of us last night we ate 140 !!
Lots of time today for snippets .. .. my lovely DIL has been happy playing with craft goodies on the dining room table so I have been playing along too .. .. it would be rude not too LOL!!
Here are my snippets for this week:
So now round to the snippet register. Lots of snippets used up this week by all of my lovely playmates.
First to the playground this week was Irene .. .. in fact she made it to the playground twice this week. The first of Irene's snippet makes you will find here and the second one here. The first is a super cute Christmas card using a bargain stamp and the second one of my favourite Penny Black baby stamps!! Gorgeous makes!!
Next along was Elizabeth who also visited the playground twice this week. Elizabeth's first creation, a sweet 8 x 8 snippet layout, is here and the second one is here. There are so many amazing links in Elizabeth's second post .. .. with fantastic inspiration. Thank you so much for sharing all this Elizabeth .. .. the links and your creations are a real treat.
Di was bright and early sharing her snippet make this week. I think this was because she had "come by" a new stamp .. .. and you know what it is like when you get a new stamp in your hand .. .. you just have to use it don't you!! Well Di used hers beautifully. My kind of stamp that's for sure!!
My next playmate was a very hyperactive Catherine .. .. who ended up brining all of her snippet makes into the playground using a wheelbarrow .. .. there were far too many for her to carry!! In fact in total Catherine shared FIVE snippet makes this week!! Prepare for a wonderful array of snippet makes and look for Catherine's makes, here, here, here, here and here. There would be a goodly amount of snippets used up on all of these I am sure .. ... and each and every one of them looks amazing. Well done Catherine. I think you used more snippets last week than I have in the last two weeks. I had better pull my finger out!!!!! LOL!!!
Hazel was the next to arrive with a lovely card featuring lots of lovely hearts!! In fact I have noticed quite a few hearts making an appearance in the snippet playground .. .. hearts must be catching!! Tee hee!! Gorgeous colours on Hazel's make.
Amanda then called by to share a lovely make which reminds me of how my kitchen looked last night in the middle of pancake mode !!! I love the cute image Amanda used and her gorgeous colour combo.
A double whammy from Lynne was next with the first creation on view here and the second one here. Such beautiful makes but I have to admit to the first one being my favourite. Such brilliant use of snippets and such wonderful finished look.
Becky was next to join in the fun and shared a gorgeous card with geometric shapes .. .. the rounding of the corners made for a lovely finish to this lovely creation. Loved the colour choices Becky made too!!
Another very busy snippet user in the playground was Bernie .. .. who was also struggling to carry all of her snippet makes this week. She ended up with one in each hand the the other clenched between her teeth!!! You can find all Bernie's lovely makes here, here, and here. All of Bernie's makes were beautiful ... ... as always .. .. but I have a soft spot for the first one!! Brilliant use of Bernie's punches.
Next to arrive in the playground was Kym .. .. who brought with her a great Christmas card featuring a snow globe!! Great use of snippets and a sentiment that made me smile.
Then last, but by no means least was the lovely Tammy who shared a really colourful and original make. Tammy has some wonderful stamps in her collection and always uses them in such brilliant ways.
Thank you everyone for playing along again this week. It is always fun to have so many playmates and so much wonderful inspiration.
I will be back again bright and early tomorrow with my next Happy Handy Hippo post.
Have a lovely evening everyone. We are off out for an birthday Indian with big baby boy and his wife and little baby boy too .. .. and not a pancake in sight!!
