Pixies Snippets Playground week 170....

I've missed a couple of Pixies Snippets challenges  but managed to find enough snippets to use with this SU Young Vermillion stamp image that has beenin my box for ages...
The 'mesh' corners are from Tim Holts Mixed media dies...I also used the 'waste' as a stencil for the background which seemed to work well and also used an old Stamp in the Hand.stamp called 'field of sky' and added the little 'dots..
Foiliage is bits from a SU Wilson die Grand Vinery die....

Just noticed my cards not striaght....sorry

Hopefully the weather will improve a little bit for Easter as its still quite chilly...

Potting shed.....

I just love the paper pad called The Poptting Shed from Craftwork cards and with the die cuts you can makes  quick and easy cards..all elements except the die cut water spray, ribbon and button are from Craftwork Cards.

Its a horrible wet and windy morning down here in Somerset so its the craft room for me today...

Hopefully you all remembered to put your clocks forward an hour...it will be lovely to have the lighter evenings..

Sassy Cheryl....

We've been 'baby sitting' various grandchildren since Thursday evening yesterday we took the last two home...

This little Sassy Cheryl image is a card I made for craft club sample, its using Polychromos pencils...the paper is all old DSP from Stamping Up....ladybird die is from Elizabeth Crafts...other punches used are from SU.

Its a miserable Sunday morning down here in Somerset very dull, misty and cold hope its brighter where you are...

Stampin Up day...

 On Saturday we had another lovely day crafting with the very talented Jenny Moors (stampingMoments) we made some lovely spring cards and this lovely clock which I thought was a great idea.....
                                                 

The Balloon card I really enjoyed making, we also made a little basket and little gift bag, both of which I need to finish off properly...it certainly was a full on day but so enjoyable...

Kanban beauty....

 We've got a lovely morning down here in Somerset beautiful bright sunshine seems to nice to be inside...
I bought a sheet of  Kanban toppers as I thought they were gorgeous, the colours in real live are so much better though but as you know silver doesn't seem to photograph very well.
Backing paper and ribbon are both from SU...dies I've used are Marianne and the swirl an old Magnolia Dohicky die....the little silver flower is from my 'bit box'....

Up-cycling 1940's......

 No cards made this week but another bit of sewing...
As many of you know we are 1940's reinactors.....lots of clothing is very expensive so I bought this Ferdora hat on EBAY and did some cutting and stitching, adding some ribbon a feather and this is what I ended up with.....

                                                                Back View

As you know these hats are worn on the side of your head and tilted forward, when we are next in Costume I will let you see the full effect....I shall be looking through the charity shops now for more hats to redesign....

Back to card making tomorrow...
Enjoy your weekend...
