A week of Snippets #1 ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend is going well. I had to take a break from crafting and blogging because my back has been so bad. Thankfully I have finally started to crawl off the floor and be able to sit upright and I have a card to share with you …

A 148mm square male birthday card
Good to post too
All the lovely details
I love these rich shades of blue

Created for me and especially for these Challenges

Love to Craft Challenge LTCCB #2Anything Goes

Everything that I used on this card with the exception of the card blank came out of the snippets bags. I stamped the bird onto a small white snippet then coloured him, the stitched banner was die cut from another white snippet, the background was left over from another project and the sentiment and flourish were die cut from coloured snippets too. I have so many snippets that I have decided I need to shrink all of the different bags of them. I also have stamped and coloured images that have been stamped onto snippets ready and waiting to be used and I am going to try and shrink that pile too. So this week I will be sharing cards that have only been created with snippets. Thankfully I have a couple of other projects to share that aren’t cards, but you will have to wait to see them for a couple of days as they aren’t quite finished yet.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon and you have yourself an awesome weekend ttfn Karen x

Beautiful card - I love the dramatic bold colors! (Glad your back is feeling better too - it's so debilitating when your back goes out!) So happy you could share this with us at Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes w/ Dies Challenge and HLS Watercolor Challenge and good luck!
