Time Flies!

 This week just seems to have flown by even more quickly than usual and with not much being achieved by yours truly 🙄.  Luckily I have a card which was made in the previous week and which is just right for the current Allsorts Challenge where the theme is ** Christmas Time **.  Quite a simple card but a happy one with these little penguins dancing in the snow.  Where would we be without our die cutting machines and dies I wonder - just a stamped greeting added.

EDIT:  I've just had a lovely comment from Dotty Jo pointing out that the unusual colour scheme of this card would qualify it for entry into the Christmas Kickstart challenge this time so the penguins are dancing over there to join in along with the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers

Snippets Playground

 There's a new challenge in the Playground and inspiration from Sarn in the form of two super ATC's - of course there is also a lovely prize to be won by one lucky winner at the end of the two weeks.  Just follow the rules - there aren't too many - use some of your Snippets and enter a project.  Simples 🤣.

I have to admit to using a whole piece of designer paper on this card, but it was a 6" x6" piece so not much left over.  Other than that, and of course a card blank, everything else on this card came from my Snippets mountain.  An aperture was cut into a square of card which was trimmed to be slightly smaller than the DSP and the butterflies had been die cut from snippets some time ago and were languishing in the pot on my desk which holds all sorts of treasures, mostly surplus to requirements on past projects but they do eventually get used.  A computer sentiment was die cut and layered onto another matching snippet and that's it my Snippets card for this challenge.
