Some snippet makes

I have been having a major sort out. My snippets are now all together, lots of my unmounted stamps are in A5 folders and I'm just waiting on a delivery of eze-mount before I continue. I had some lovely images I had coloured in before Christmas and found the perfect papers to complement them amongst my snippets.
First another Hobby art scene coloured with aqua markers and distress inks. Not sure where the papers are from (other than my snippet drawer!)
Next were some stamps I got free on the front of a magazine (Quick cards made easy). I stamped and coloured these on Christmas eve, but hadn't done anything with them. They go pretty well with the snippets of Pink Petticoat papers I found.

These remind me of one of my Christmas presents - a gift box of tea.
Aren't the boxes so pretty?
I'm entering all three of my cards into Pixie's Crafty Snippets Challenge, who has taken over the keys from the lovely Jules. Hey, Di - do you think those boxes would count as snippets?! Thanks for looking. I'm off to drink some afternoon tea!

Hi Sally
Happy New Year.
Your walk through Sherwood Forest looks lpovely. We kepy saying we would go for a walk but never got a dry day all through the holidays, it's been really wet here. We could've done with a bit of your sunshine.
I love your snippet makes, especially the teapot and cups and your boxes of tea look too lovely to open. I'll have a cup of Earl Grey please!!

Lovely cards Sally, I'm afraid when my bag of bits gets out of hand it goes in the bin! Bet you don't throw those lovely tea boxes away:)

Your cards are lovely, Sally. I use snippets when I create cards as well. I have four drawers full of snippets, organized after seasons (except for summer, isn't that weird?) and a miscellaneous one. It works pretty well for me.

You matched up your snippets perfectly Sally. Amazing what you can find in a tidy up. I dread to think what's lurking at the bottom of the various piles on my desk though, lol!

I don't drink tea but I do love your gorgeous box of boxes. I bet you'll find a good use for those when they're empty.

Gorgeous cards Sally and I particularly like the tea things ones. I'd never have known you matched the papers to the image afterwards - they're perfect! Vicky x

Hi Sal

As soon as I looked at your lovely tea boxes I was thinking how great they would look on a card. Wouldn't they make fabulous paper stack?

Loving your snippet makes .. .. and the little zig-zag/heart punch!! LOL!!

You made me smile about the fine nibbed promarkers. Pleased it isn't just me!!

Thank you for your lovely comments on my exciting news too.

Love Jules xx

Hi Sally! However did I miss this lovely posting, I think it's because of two Sallys - I'm so sorry chick! I feel really bad about it.

Brilliant use of your snippets and I adore the stamp set you've used. I've got that one lurking somewhere too :)

Yup, the tea boxes would certainly be fine for snippets - this week Irene used a piece of wallpaper!
