Happy Sunday .. .. have you enjoyed your extra hour? I think most people will have spent the extra time simply going round and altering all the various clocks that seem to increase each year LOL!!
If you have come to my blog looking for my Funky Hand blog hop post then you will find that here and if you haven't joined in the hop and would like to then you need to start with my lovely Funky leader Anice here. But you need to get a jiggle on as entry closes tonight (30th October) at midnight!
I am likely to be in bad books again this week (see the end of this post) as I am going to need to close the playground gates early again this week as I have another wedding fayre to attend next Sunday so I will need to get my snippet post scheduled to appear whilst I am busy with those lovely happy couples :
Not sure which is my favourite this week .. .. but I am leaning towards the middle one .. .. simply because I love that rose stamp so much! But then I love the Christmas one too and the funky little birds LOL!!!
Anyway, time for the snippet register and to see which playmates had fun in the snippet playground this week.
My first playmate to make an appearance was Lynne who arrived with her arms full to overflowing with fabby Christmas makes. All very bright and beautiful and very inspirational!
Next was Hazel with her lovely vintage Christmas card. All super sparkly and such a wonderful colour combo.
Then from miles away in Texas came Carole with a fabulous make. I just love what Carole has done and my mind is thinking I could perhaps use up some of my "white snippet mountain" if I got my dies and distress ink pads out!! Thanks for the inspiration Carole.
Another beautiful Christmas card made its way into the playground next courtesy of Carol. Great layout, image and super cute little snowflakes. Love it!
Ann visited the snippet playground twice this week and share two lovely makes. The first is here and the second one here. Both creations are gorgeous but the second one is very creative. Great idea Ann!
Sally called by next with a lovely "dotty tree" creation. I love the bright colours on this make very much. Sally is a bit like me and enjoys doing bits of doodling on her creations .. .. but forced herself to restrain her doodling tendencies on this one LOL!!!
The next playmate to arrive was Kym with a card to make you smile. I think the image and sentiment Kym has used are just great and it looks like lots of snippets met their doom on this one!! A mini mountain must have been used! Well done.
Ivonne called by next to share a Christmas card with a difference .. .. it was a "left handed" Christmas card. Now I do have to admit to having made one of these myself .. .. but by mistake LOL!! Ivonne actually wanted to make what she called a "lefty card". Great use of snippets and such beautiful shapes and colours!
Di came to the playground next "trick or treating" all the way with a fabby Halloween card. I love the colours of Halloween and it always seems such a shame that they only appear at this silly time of year when you dread hearing knocks at your door LOL!!!
Irene also called by with two shares this week. The first one you will find here and the second one here. As always two beautiful makes from Irene .. .. but the snowflake vellum on the first one make that my favourite of the two this week .. .. it is just stunning. Even if it was in my snippet box I might have struggled to use that!!
The next playmate waiting in line was Sarah and she also brought Christmas cards for us all to look at .. .. and what beauties they are too. Fabulous use of colour, scrummy ribbon and sentiment stamps that I just couldn't risk looking at too long!!! Tee hee.
A beautiful snippet make arrived next in the hands of Catherine .. .. how super cute is this? So many lovely embellishments and just perfect for celebrating the arrival of a new baby girl.
Now this next playmate was doing a bit of trick or treating too and managed to confuse me for a while (easily done LOL!!). They arrived announcing themselves as Scottie and when I looked closer it was actually my regular snippet playmate Sandra with a fabulous green creation. I love this shade of green. Great make Scottie Sandra!! LOL!!
Two more Christmas cards arrived next .. .. one in each hand of Brenda B .. .. and how gorgeous they were too and using the most fabulous die. I would imagine a little patience is required in the "sticking it all down" department .. .. but well worth the effort as you will see.
Beryl also shared a lovely Christmas card in the snippet playground too. Like Brenda, Beryl made great use of her dies and snippets to create a beautiful finished card.
Then last but by no means least was Elizabeth who used her snippets to create a lovely Christmas card too. A great little winter scene and as always a beautiful finished look inside and out!
Thank you ladies for sharing all of your wonderful creations and for showing what fantastic things can be made by looking at those snippets that just "hang around" our craft space.
So don't for get the snippet gates will be closing early this week.
I will see you all again tomorrow bright and early with my Happy Handy Hippo make for this week but in the meantime if you fancy a blog hop then nip back to the beginning of this post as you could be the lucky winner of the new Funky Hand CD that is soon to be released.
