The Playground

I've not visited the playground lately - at least not to post a card although I do take a look most days to see what others have been doing.   I've been tempted to enter the Snippets challenge inspired the beautiful card made by Di this week using the great  prize on offer.   My card was made a while ago using up bits and pieces from my left overs boxes.  The background is the last remnant from a session using wax resist and embossing folders; the square white frame was left from a previous project and the flower wreath and cameo lady cut from white snippets and placed on an oval cut from another snippet pattern paper.

Wax resist panel - Sue Wilson Embossing Folder
Square Frame - Tonic nesting scalloped squares dies
Wreath - die given away free with magazine
Cameo - Tonic die
Pattern Paper - Tim Holtz vintage shabby


  1. Really gorgeous card Val and the wax resist embossing is so beautiful! Love the soft turquoise as well - good luck in the draw :)

  3. I agree with Di, wax resist embossing is a gorgeous effect. I've don't know anyone who can put together are card from snippets as beautifully as you Val. This is so lovely.

    PS I had my op three and a half weeks ago Val. Not for anything life threatening, more to get rid of a 'nuisance'! All I can say is the 'possible' cure has been much worse than the affliction and recovery is proving to be very slow and painful but I'm getting there gradually.

  4. Hi Val

    Very lovely indeed .. .. so bright and beautiful.

    I too have been MIA from the snippet playground. In fact from blogland for a little while .. .. but hopefully things will be back to normal soon.

    Yes, I agree, Di's card was really stunning. That is one special die!

    Hope all is well with you.

    Love Jules xx
