Swirly Scribbles for Snippets Challenge

Well how is that title for a bit of alliteration?   I raided my bits boxes for a selection of colours to make this card and die cut the pieces several times, leaving me with four piles of bits and pieces on my mat - some of them very small I must say.  If you check out the post written by the clever Di HERE you will see her explanation of a really good way to deal with inserting all the teeny bits back into the spaces in the die cuts.  I did mine in the really fiddly way by sticking the main die cut shape down, then scrabbling through the coloured bits before sticking some of them back into the gaps with the aid of tweezers and glue which was a bit of a fiddly task.  I will certainly grab a sticky sheet to give her method a try next time I decide to go for this technique!!  Definitely a good number of snippets this week.

Sorry I've not posted much lately, nor left many comments but I've not been feeling 100%, hopefully on the mend now though.
