LIM - Snippets for Chrissie

Hi there, happy Friday.  Here is my card for Chrissie, the lovely lady over on the Less is More blog, who has celebrated a big birthday.  Happy belated birthday wishes Chrissie.  This is the LIM challenge to use snippets for Chrissie, and here is my card.
Hopefully, this is clean and simple enough.  I used bits of white card to stamp and layer for this card, and to make the little tags.  The stamp is SU, and I think appropriate for those special birthday celebrations.  Thanks for looking - I will go and link up now to LIM and Snippets Playground.

Snippets Playground

This is my card to be entered into Di's Snippets Playground this week.  I used all the snippets which were lying on my craft table, and I used my freebie spiral rose die which I have had for a few weeks now.

This week Di has teamed up with the ladies from Less is More, for a snippets challenge, but I think this card is too fussy for a LIM challenge, so I shall have to think about a new design for that little challenge.

I will be back soon.  Happy crafting.

Butterfly challenge # 35 - tallisman

Hello there, hope you are enjoying a brand new week. I did not think I would be able to take part in Mrs. A's challenge this week as I wasn't sure I had a tallisman (charm).  However, I delved deep into my old stash and found a handbag charm, and then I went from there.  Here is my card.

The handbag charm gave me the colours, and the idea to use the dress-up framelits dies from SU and also the butterfly die.  The banner stamps are from the Kimono range from Crafter's Companion.  I just had enough scrap ribbon to match the coastal cabana colour.  The backing paper and the paper for the butterfly are from Pink Petticoat Floraline design.  I quite enjoyed putting this little card together.  Have a good week.

Snippets playground 186

Hello everyone, I do hope you are enjoying the sunshine.  My card today comes from an inspirational sketch (no. 2) from Jules (Always with a heart).  She has put a few sketches on a tab on her blog for 'us crafters' who have those "foggy moments".  I do have quite a few of those, lol.  So thank you Jules for allowing me to use some of your inspiration.  As some of the papers and white card are snippets this card will be entered into Di's Snippets challenge.

The papers and stamp are from SU, and the sentiment is a Clearly Besotted stamp.  Please take a look at the sketch on Jules' blog HERE.

Butterflies and Gems (Butterfly challenge #34)

Hi there, I do hope everyone has enjoyed the sunshine.  I did not realise I had been so busy and not posted for a while.  Here is my contribution to Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge, which uses gems this time around.  Now it took a while for me to locate my gems - I finally found them in my scrap box, obviously carefully tidied away then, lol.

This uses stamp sets from SU, and the colours are pear pizazz and so saffron.  The patterned cardstock is a coredinations, which is a snippet from a 12x12 sheet, so this card will be going over to the snippet playground.  Thanks for looking.
