Snippets Unite!

It's Sunday again.. yea, happens once a week.  :)  But its also the day that Di at Pixie's Crafty Workshop opens the gates for the snippet challenge.  I tried to sneek in to the playground last night for LAST weeks snippet challenge, but the gates were locked up tight.  So here is my THIS weeks offering.

I'm trying to use up some paper that will be retiring from Stampin Up at the end of May.  The DSP on each one is from the In Colors Pattern paper stack.  The star and the flower on the lower left on each one are the snippets.  Amazing what you can cut out of 2 inch pieces of paper.  :)  My bits and pieces are growing, though.  I'm thinking I need to spend some time organizing.  ummm.. yea, right.  That would take away from my card making time.  Probably not going to happen.   As I sit here and look at my picture, I guess I should have moved my grid paper... lol... You can see what stamp sets I've been playing with. 

 Everything is from Stampin Up!

Stamps:  Sprinkled Expressions (SAB 2012), Elementary Elegance (SAB 2012), Thanks is from an old Hostess set that I don't know the name of.. oops

Ink:  Poppy Parade and Concord Crush

Paper:  Concord Crush, Poppy Parade, In Color patterns pack 2010-2012, Basic Black and Whisper White

See, I CAN do blog posts on consecutive days.  :)  Now I'm off to see what everyone else has done this week in blog land.

Stuff :)

I just don't understand WHAT just happened to January!  It was here and now is gone.  Amazing...

So I have a few things to show.  This is what I was working on today.  Someone came in to work and requested that I make them a valentines card for her to give to her husband.  Hmmm.. what to do .. what to do.  This is what I did. 

I think it turned out pretty good.  :)  I used the Mocha Morning Specialty Paper.  It's FUZZY!!   I guess they call it Flocked... but fuzzy works for me.  This was not the card I had in my mind, but sometimes cards morph into something else.  And something else I learned today - the swirly stamp in Elements of Style matches the black fuzzy design on the paper.   Huh, who knew!?  Probably everyone else who has the paper, but sometimes it takes me awhile to figure things out.  hahaha!
