A couple of challenges

Can you tell it's the school holidays? This will make 3 challenges this week, lol!
My first card was going to be for Less is More last week, but I messed it up! When I saw the Allsorts bingo theme this week I realised I could cover up my mess with ribbon and a bit of bling! So the bingo line I chose was pink, green and ribbon.
The plant stamps are from Inkylicious and the sentiment is from Waltzing Mouse.
My next offering is made from ancient snippets that were donated to me and a scene I stamped (using Hobby Art stamps) and watercoloured whilst I was on holiday last summer.
Here is a better view of the dragonfly made with fantasy film.
Again, this was made a couple of years ago using an old Anita's stamp, and has been in my bits and bobs box  ever since. It has a lovely gold and green shimmer IRL.
This is my offering for Di's Crafty Snippets this week. Looking forward to having a good play in the playground. Well, I'd better get off to bed. Got a long list of jobs to get through tomorrow. Thanks for looking!

  1. Both cards are fabulous Sally - I love the pink and green one, so soft.

    And your snippets make is beautiful - the scene is so tranquil and set off so well by the fabulous dragonfly. Love the BPs too - err, and you've had the sewing machine going too - brilliant!

    If you didn't wipe the swing dry you'll have wet knickers - it's been raining non-stop all day!!!

  3. Hi Sally

    I love them both, but you might guess the first one wins hands down with me.

    The lovely hazy feel of a warm spring morning and the scent of blossom rising from the dew..........I now fantasy land.

    Thanks so much for joining my bingo theme at Allsorts challenge and good luck with the prize draws.

  14. Both fantastic cards. Hugs Mrs A. Got carrots over by the roundabout. They can count as part of your 5 a day you know.

  15. These are both gorgeous Sally and I think it was perhaps a happy accident your first card originally got messy because it's now fabulous. The colours are really lovely and I love the snippet card too. Lovely neat stitching. Glad you're having a nice break.

    Hugs

  16. Both great cards, but I particularly like the second one. Love the colours you used on the image and the scene you created. I love the scene-it stamps, but struggle to get the bridge to turn into a nice scene. You've cracked it!!
