I hope it is a good weekend for everyone .. .. .. .. .. in fact a good bank holiday weekend (sorry if anyone dropping by isn't getting the extra day tagged on).
Now hubby is retired the bank holidays don't seem quite the magical occasion they used to be when we were younger. Probably because each day feels like a holiday now!
I can highly recommend retirement life .. .. not that I have retired. I still have lots of ambitions and dreams I am striving to achieve .. .. but it is good to have someone around who is happy to clear the kitchen up and even cook when things get super busy for me. He's a good egg!!! LOL!!!
Today I had a quick play with my ever growing pile of snippets.
I need to hang my head in shame though because I haven't been playing along recently with Pixie's Snippets Playground .. .. .. .. and it isn't as if I don't have any snippets left. I have no excuse. Snippet mountain still grows bigger every day!
But this is my offering for the current challenge:
Julie Hickey: Bee Happy Stamp Set
Julie Hickey: Layers, Frames & Banner Rectangle Die Set
MFT DieNamics: Stitched Flowers
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Everything about my card came from snippet mountain except for the card base .. .. .. so just an ultra small reduction in snippets .. .. .. but every little helps.
Beautiful cheerful colours in the papers and die cut flower with a wonderful sentiment,love the font.
Our warm sunny weather continues,lots of walks along the beach and dolphin watching,take care,Meg x
A pretty card Jules, lovely papers and colours.
I know what you mean about bank holidays and retirement, I am never quite sure what day it is now that hubby has retired - it's a lovely feeling though!

A happy card - loving the variety of squares and flowers even if your snippet mountain hasn't reduced much. Enjoy your bank holiday
A great use of snippets Jules, a very pretty card x
Your snippet card is gorgeous..such beautiful bright colours...as you say our snippets never seem to go down..
Yes when your retired everyday does seem to be the same but having extra help around in the kitchen is great...
This is so cheerful and colourful. We don't get this holiday in Scotland, but like you say every day is a holiday when you are retired. We just seem to have to fit a little bit more in each day, but so enjoyable. Take care. Elaine
I love this wonderful card Jules, gorgeous layout and colours.
Yes that's the only thing about retirement, don't qualify for holidays lol, take care Kate x
