Snippets Playground week 160.....

Another week and another Pixies Snippet Playground Challenge .....the whole of my card was made with snippets this week, I've used S.U Moustache die and the lips are an old die from Quickutz...embossed backing is Sue Wilson lattice hearts, I've used Spellbinders Celebration pierced squares for mounting, the sentiment is computer generated.

Off out to lunch with a couple of friends today so looking forward to that..

It's a Man's World....

It was our club night last night...we didn't really complete our two projects as the weather was a little wild and it was raining heavily so we finished earlier as we were concerned about the roads being flooded.

Most of the girls managed to get a paper pieced card made and this is another of my samples.  I've used one of the images from Papermania 'Its a Man's World' stamp set, all I  paper pieced was his chair....Jill from Jillsquillsblogspot
made some fabulous samples for us and I know she has a couple on her blog so pop over to her blog and have a look.
The backing papers I used came  some old K & Co paper pad called Hopscotch, Martha Stewart Punch..

After a very wild night although its showery we do have some sunshine down here in Somerset at the moment...

Pixies Snippets Challenge week 159.................

For the Pixies Snippets Challenge this week I had a rummage through my gold, copper, silver and black snippets box and this is the card I've come up with.

Using my Cogs/Gears die from Dies for all Occasions...the embossing is from Couture Creations and the sentiment is computer generated...I rubbed a piece of black card with some old Rub.n.Glo Finger metallics that I had and popped the die cuts on top.

Hope you all have a good week...

Pixies snippets Challenge....week 158



Its quite a few weeks since I did Pixies Snippet so this week I've made an effort...
I've used Penny Black Frames flowers stamp and paper pieced the flowers, paper piecing is ideal to use up all those tiny scraps of paper....Tied together embossing folder, Spellbinders Timeless Rectangle die, paper from my scrap box, senitment from Craftwork Cards...
The photograph isn't great as its a very dark morning here in Somerset...

Tattered Lace.....

Christmas just seemed to have flashed but we had a lovely time with all the grandchildren...seeing their faces as they open their presents was just lovely.

I've managed to pick up some kind of chesty bug so don't feel like doing much crafting at the moment but here's a card I started to make before Christmas and finished it off this morning.... 

Its a Tattered Lace die that came with the Tattered Lace magazine Issue No 13 and she is called Georgina...
I've Just kept it simple by adding paper from my stash, SU border embossing folder and a couple of corner dies.

Happy Christmas.....

Just popping in to wish you and your family A Very Happy Christmas and a Peaceful New Year...
When out shopping this morning I couldn't believe my eyes lots of daffodils in full bloom.....I thought it was spring rather than Christmas...

Hope Father Christmas is good to you all....
