Pixie's snippets playground - week 222


Yep it is week 222 at the Playground this week and this is the card that I have made for the challenge.

The snippets used are bits from the green gingham paper and I am not sure where from.
The papers used on the flower and background are from some very old papers from Craftwork Cards, I loved these papers, very little left now
The sentiment is half of a CC's  sentiment, I have used the other half before.
Image is Woodware - Marguerite Patch,
I have used glossy accents on the image.
Pretty poor photo, sorry .

Allsorts challenge - 356 - Wings

The sponsor for our challenge this week is none other than...
Penny Black and here is the first fabulous prize on offer.
Now I actually have this stamp and this is a card I made with it last Christmas.
We also have as a second prize some Penny Black Stickeroo's.
Some fabulous images and so great for a quick and easy card.

Our challenge this week has been chosen by Tracy M - Wings
but the above card has been blogged before so it is not my card for this challenge
This is my card


I have used a Penny Black Stickeroo for the main image and the Butterflies were also on the same sheet which is called Timeless.
Embossing folder - Embossalicious
Ribbon and punches SU
Sentiment Craftwork Cards
Sorry about the photo, the main image is better than it shows here.
I think the card stock maybe SU as well as it seem to match the ribbon very well.

Some fabulous cards from the DT on the challenge blog, please pop along for more inspiration.

I had a real mad panic last night, I was getting no photo's at all, on here, on the DT winners post and on all my followers blogs, did anyone else have this, I eventually switched off my computer and left it a while then everything was back to normal, phew.

Once again Happy Easter to you all and don't forget Rudolph Day runs till the 31st of March.

Rudolph Day - March 2016

Hi Everyone and welcome to Rudolph Day, for this month's challenge I have reverted back to 
Snowmen.

I just love snowmen and these are from Woodware the stamp is Snow Buddies.

My idea for this years Christmas cards was to stick to red and green but as you can see I did vary them slightly. There are 8 cards here, a couple you can not see.

Now this is a very tall stamp and originally I did not have a stamp block big enough to use, so as it happens I have a glass cutting mat so I put the stamp on there and placed the card on top and pressed the card down to create the image, now this was a tad hit and miss as to how the the image turned out, but as I lack a great deal of patience I put the Woodware stamping block to fit, on my Christmas list and I got it, yea.

All coloured with Promarkers and the sentiments are cut down Craftwork cards circle sentiments.

Happy Rudolph Day or Rudolph Week, as it is a long one this month, so hope you can find the time to support Mo and her team.

 It seems strange having Rudolph Day on Good Friday.
Happy Easter to you all and Happy Rudolph Day too.

Allsorts - week 355 - Easter

Yes another week has flown by and we are now heading for Easter which is our challenge this week at Allsorts and it has been chosen by Susan.

I have gone for a quirky image and I just love this one from Bugaboo.
Coloured with Promarker but I have paper pieced the hat and used the Corner Bow die from
Memory Box in the same papers and for once I left the paper in the bow, so it would stand out more.
Computer generated sentiment cut with a ZigZag stitched square as is the main image.
Our Sponsor this week are...

Scrappers Delight.
and

Stamp Addicts 

I will also be entering this card into Pixies Snippets Playground when it open again on Sunday as the paper piecing was all from snippets
A tad early to wish you all a Happy Easter, so I hope you all have a great week.
Thanks for looking.
