Special snippets

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky to win a prize in the snippet playground. It was a gorgeous set of rose themed stamps by Lindsay Mason. One of my first thoughts once half term arrived was to press them into use to make a thank you card for Miss Di, and here it is.
The panel of paper on which I stamped the rose background was left over from some dylusion spraying (After midnight, cherry pie, funky fuchsia and white linen). I stamped everything in memento elderberry. The black strip that the rose background is mounted on is also a snippet. The sentiment is from Inkylicious.
As I used up a couple of snippets I am taking it to the snippet playground, where there is a fantastic prize on offer - only some of Sarn's zentangle stamps!
Me and Sarn have been talking about a bit of karate in the playground. I just need to persuade Sensei Alex to come along, whilst Mrs A is enlisting some muscular fire fighters for us to grapple with!!!
Thanks for looking!

Di said...

Hi Sally! And that card is right here in front of me! It's absolutely beautiful and, as I said in my email earlier, so clever to use two of the stamps from the set as you did - and such luscious colours too. LOVE it!!

Ha! Karate in the Playground eh? Watch out for Friday's blog post then Missie, I've been making Ninja Turtles in self defence :)

Enjoy your half-term break - Sylvia xx

Mrs A. said...

Fire fighters? Hey up I thought you said Fire Eaters!! Best cancel the ones I got coming on Friday then. Good job Miss dun no nuffin about that or else I'd be in the chook house again. Your card is lovely. Those colours are just so rich.
hugs Mrs A.
Erm what shall I do with the barrel of parrafin behind the shed then.

Sarn said...

Beautiful card Sally.

"Hi YAAAAAA!" (Just practicing my karate chops!)

Oh jeepers . . . Mrs A didn't have her hearing aid in again . . . we said fire FIGHTERS not fire EATERS! Oh lord, now we're for it!

Hugs, Sarn xxx

You have put your prize to excellent use, Sally, and I'm sure Miss Di is going to treasure this! I hope you win again! Hmmm, karate, eh? Muscular firemen, eh? I think you should just grapple with them and not karate chop them! I can't remember the last time I saw a Grappling Contest, but I do remember there was a marriage shortly afterwards! Hugs, Darnell

Beautiful card Sally, such a lovely colour combination too.

Are you girls sure you should be playing with fire and doing karate at the same time? could be interesting to see though!!!!
