Next up is from Valery Anne (or Mrs. A as she's known at Pixie's Playground)..She's counts waterpistol marksmanship among her artistic talents too. (should that have been marksladyship???)
I've had some questions about what is the meaning of the term 'snippets' that I use on some posts. Well, in Yankee speak, we'd say "Scraps" "Leftover cuts" or something of the sort. In the UK, they are called 'Snippets', which I think sounds ever so much more fun. When I first started to blog, one kind reader directed me to the website Pixie's Crafty Workshop and suggested I submit a card.(the only requirement for the challenge is that one uses a scrappy bit - ie- snippet. Rules are very easy as is linking up). It was the very first time I'd tried anything of the sort. Of course I managed to be a total mess-up with the process; Miss Pixie (aka Di or Diane- who does all the hardwork to maintain the challenge & offers some super prizes too) took the time to help me, explain how (and re-explain several times when I kept screwing it up!). She also generously gave her time to help me with some blogging how-to's...etc. So if you have never checked out this site, please, please do. There's so many talented folks who submit cards, projects & have really awesome blogs to browse. People there are friendly, so generous with their ideas & encouragement. It's just been a wonderful experience for me, and particularly in early days when I didn't have a clue as to what I was doing, but just needed to do something 'new'. So many people who visit there regularly have offered me such warm friendship, & many of these cards that I'm sharing - came from those lovely & wonderful card makers. So, as a New Year's treat to yourself, please take the time and visit for some fabulous inspiration--- & giggles too on occasion!
I hope to be back later with a few more cards, and I'm going to start posting a picture of the blog candy that I'd like to offer when I reach 200 followers. I've an idea about how I'm going to do it, and I hope you'll approve. In the meantime, have a super Saturday. If you're where the weather is terrible, I hope you have the opportunity to stay inside, be cozy & warm...and thankful to be so! Hugs, Hugs, Hugs. As always, thanks for the time you spent visiting here with me. MWAH!
