Another snippet make

Well, I have managed to get out to play twice in one week! For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, it is Di's crafty snippet challenge, where many of us relive our childhood whilst using up our snippet mountains!  I am here with a card for a friend's daughter. I can't believe she is three already! I found this fabulous stripy paper in my snippet box and thought it was perfect for a little girls card. The rosette was made from another snippet, and the ribbon was a scrap barely long enough to go across the card. The image is a digistamp from Mo Manning and I LOVE it! It reminds me of Meg when she was about five. I coloured it with promarkers and finished it with a sentiment from Waltzing Mouse. The flower is a die cut bought in a pack before I had a cuttlebug (yes, that long ago!)
Right, I've found a spacehopper in the shed. If I can only work out how to blow it up with the bicycle pump I'll bounce my way round the playground!

Wow Sally, just perfect! As you say, the image is great and you've made a super card too. Don't little girls love cooking and baking - such fun, and messy too :)

Space hoppers now huh? Maybe we need a one-way traffic system in the playground?
