Celebration of Snippets

Hello, everyone!  Before I share my card, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Shery Russ - thank you for joining me!  If you would like to leave a link to your blog in the comments, I will be happy to hop over and follow you too!  I actually know another Shery Russ, so it's fun that there are two of you with the same name!

Today I'm participating in a special event!  Have you ever played at Pixie's Snippet Playground?  It's a place to go to show off what we've made with our snippets (scraps, leftovers), and it's hosted by the lovely Di.  Well, Di's friend Darnell has initiated a blog hop to thank Di for the 7 years she has managed the Playground, and of course I wanted to join in!

I love playing at the Snippets Playground!  I've been hanging out there since 2014.  Di has a bi-weekly linky, and she comments on every entry.  She provides an inspiration card with details on how she made it, and offers up a generous prize, out-of-pocket.  Di also has a new puppy - Dudley - and she shares a lot of cute photos and updates!  Thank you, Di, for all you do to encourage us to use our snippets!


My card features lots of snippets!  First, there's the die-cut alcohol ink background, which is a snippet from this card. I adhered it to a white panel and then a brown panel, both of which are snippets.  The die-cut buck/wreath is cut from the same brown panel.  I stamped a sentiment on a die-cut banner, also a snippet.  Lastly I added a few brown sequins.  

I would like to support the following 5 challenges:
Crafter's Castle 13 AG Optional Fun Technique (alcohol ink background) 4/4 C10
Pammie's Inky Pinkies AG 1/3 C5
Pixie's Snippet Playground 344 Lots of snippets used 1E
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday AG 1/5
Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 1/5 wk1

I don't normally wear a flower in my hair ...
Thank you, Di!

Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a joyful day!

Amazing snippet card!! Wow!! Love how you used the leftover of the alcohol ink background!!! It is really vibrant and dreaming with these colours! The clean design with the stag, wreath and banner makes the background being the star of the scene!! Lovely touch with the sequins!

Beautiful card in celebration of Di. I love the alcohol inks. Speaking of alcohol I think Darnell was passing out Wodka and somehow it spilled over into my blog. I'm serving coffee if needed. [Bunny]

So Lovely! I LOVE the Alcohol inked background... very cool masculine colors...
And I read the comment you left me and wanted to say I'm sorry to hear about your hubby having a few setbacks... I totally get it as my husband had several setbacks as well after his stroke. He still has issues to this day, so I understand what you're going through... I can't imagine the struggles you must be facing as well with your health issues too... Just know I'm thinking of you and praying for you both. I know it's not easy and you can always used the support... send me a message if you ever just want to talk... Big Hugs!
