A bit of a long one!

I hope you have had the fabulous weather we have had this weekend. Because it was so lovely, we had a walk in the woods yesterday, although there was a bit of mist around, despite the warmth and brightness of the sun. Here are a few photos.

Today I have done some gardening and made a couple of cards using snippets. My first card features some waltzing mouse stamps, a spellbinders border and some Pink Petticoat papers (which you are probably getting bored of by now!)
I used a little distress ink to add colour for the tea and around the stamped frame. I took a photo of it outside and unfortunately there was a bit of shadow that I didn't spot.
For my second card I paper pieced and decoupaged a Woodware singles stamp using lots of snippets. I am rather proud of the little stack I used up with this one!
Again I used some pink petticoat papers, but the other scraps have been hanging around for a very long time! Not the best photo, either I'm afraid. I will try to get a better one in the morning. Here is a close up of the 2 types of stickles and the glazed 'chocolate' and cherries.
I'm entering both of these into Di's Crafty snippets challenge, where I think I may get to be tuck shop monitor this week! Thanks for looking and I hope you have a good week.

Glad you managed to get out to enjoy the sunshine and I especially love the cupcake card. It's stunning all paper pierced up with snippets!

Super photos Sally - Spring is in the air isn't it!

Love your snippets cards, both really super and a lot of work I can see. That cupcake look good enough to take a bite out!

Tuck shop monitor for the week - the job's yours! Don't eat all the Easter eggs though!

Beautiful photos from your walk Sally. Thanks for sharing them and well done on using up your snippets for these two smashing cards. I should take a leaf out of your book as my snippets box(es) just keep growing.

I have a feeling there will be trees in this post Sally, but Blogger is not showing me any, seems he's got his normal Monday hissy fit on.

Hello Sally,
Isn't it wonderful seeing so much sun and seeing spring springing in all directions. Thank you for sharing the lovely photos.
Gorgeous cards too.
I must have missed your moonlight card - I've just seen it and think it's really beautiful.

OMGoodness, Tea and a cupcake who could ask for more. Both beautiful cards! Love the photos of your walk. I'd need a LOT of rain gear to take a walk in our woods probably snow shoes up there.
