Snippet makes

I made these cards before I went back to work, but am only just getting round to blogging them.
 This first one is a cute Mo Manning image coloured in promarkers and mounted on a piece of paper from my snippet drawer. I think the paper was a download from Pink Petticoat. The card candy and greeting are both from Craftwork Cards many moons ago
 My next offering is a Michael Powell Stamp, again coloured with promarkers. The two scraps were home made, the vertical one was done with paint dabbers and the horizontal one with iridescent colour sprays. I can't even remember how I used the rest of the sheet I made these for, but was loathed to throw them away as they were such lovely colours. I coloured my image to blend in and was quite pleased with the result.
Finally, another cute one (I may need to lie down with all the cuteness!). I stamped direct onto the base card to make the floral pattern (Waltzing Mouse stamp). I coloured it with distress ink markers. The image (wild rose studios, coloured with distress inks) and the panel beneath it were both snippets I have had in my drawer for a long time.
I am off to the Snippet playground with them and a big bag of cola cubes to share with all the construction crew, and my lovely playmates. Miss Di seems to be having a great time on her jollies "course". I'm not really jealous cos I am off on my own Educational visit on 22nd, and I might see what I could bring back for the playground... Thanks for looking and I will try and repay your visit this week.

These are all fabulous Sally and I'm glad to see the Michael Powell stamp has had an airing - the beach huts look great and the background is inspired.
Hugs, Fliss xx

Great cards but especially like the Michael Powell beach huts. Got me this stamp too. Have used water colours to paint the scene but have yet to mount it up. Really love the colours you have done yours in. Hugs Mrs A.

Love your matching of the background with the little teddy & his flower - cuteness nicely balanced with the middle CAS bit of sunshine (we wish).

Hi Sally
Your cards are just lovely. I especially like the Michael Powell one, I love his pictures and cross stitched some long before the stamps came out. I have the light house one but love these little beach huts. They look great with that gorgeous paper too.
Bet you are looking forward to the 22nd.
Hugs Lisax

Hi Sally, I love all three cards but, like others, the Michael Powell one is tops for me - love the blues you used. Like others, I have the stamp but so far haven't even inked it up.

Hope you have safe travels on 22nd - how exciting. Maybe a zebra for pets corner in the playground would be good?

Hugs, Di zz

Hi Sally,
Me at last!!!!!, I have spent ages catching up with your fabulous work, and all those cakes, love those dahlias they take me back to my childhood, where an uncle had his garden full of them. I still love them, except for the earwigs LOL.

Love your new blog look, well it is new to me!

Your cards are quite fantastic, Sally. Adorable, brilliant, adorable. I really love the watercolor effect on that middle card.

If I don't "see" you beforehand, hope you have a lovely "course" of your own on the 22nd!
