Stamptacular snippets!

Hi There! I am getting to be such an infrequent blogger these days. However, half term, Doncaster stamp magic (23/10) and the 4th Stampalot Ultimate rubber stamping Demo day (29/10) are all coming up, so I'm looking forward to finding lots and lots of inspiration!
Anyway, here is my first offering for today...
I managed to use up all the scraps of paper left over from my boxes I made for cookies and cupcakes (post before last) and came up with this. The cake stand stamp was a freebie from the front of the magazine 'Quick cards made easy' and the sentiment is from Waltzing Mouse. The roses are cut with a Marianne design die and here is one in close up.
The papers are the 6 x 6 pad from Kaiser Craft called the Devonshire collection.
I'm entering this into Jules's craft snippets and Stamptacular Sunday, where the theme is  'You choose!' It would also be very suitable for the Food glorious food theme at Sir Stampalot this month - there are still a couple of weeks left to enter and a great prize on offer!
My second and third offerings are cards requested by colleagues. A baby girl card...
The paper is from Bearly Mine designs and the baby digi is from Squigglefly, coloured with promarkers. I love the fact that this image could be a boy or a girl.
Finally a digi hydrangea from my friend Teri at Delicious Doodles.
again coloured with promarkers. The paper is from an Artylicious CD - Seasons Greetings, but I'm sure you will agree not particularly wintry!
Thanks for looking and I will hopefully get round to visiting you all soon!

You've made some lovely snippet cards, Sally. All very different but equally lovely.
Sounds like you have some nice crafty treats to look forward to at half term, can you believe half a term has gone by already!!
Have a good week.
Btw I love your Autumnal scene from the last post and agree it doesn't need anything, it's just perfect as it is.
Hugs Lisax

Love your snippets card Sally. I resisted the die you've used to mount your image at the Happy Stampers show a week ago. I have a feeling I might give in next weekend, lol! Haven't totally decided but will probably go to Donny next weekend so hope I bump into you like last time.

The New Baby card is lovely and such a cute image and I love the pretty backing paper ........... and that die again ............. and again on your gorgeous 3rd card. Okay, okay, you've sold it, lol! It is now top of my list!
