Clearing my desk of snippets, scraps and leftovers ... Day 7

Hi All,

Well, while you are reading this, I'll be home - the jollies over and no doubt the week will  have just flown by ... they always do.

So this, Day 7, is the last scheduled post and the last of this little series of mine. It was fun for me to do so I hope you have enjoyed seeing just what I managed to create out of that pile of scraps shown on the Day 1 post. Here's the snippet make for today.
The background is made from what is left over from a master board created for a Twinchie project - a swap challenge. The basis is white card inked and stamped in various colours to create my very own patterned paper. The topper is yet another of the Penny Black Stickeroos I find so irresistible :)

Scraps - the master board, teal cardstock (Papermill Direct), smooth white cardstock
Additional supplies: Image from Penny Black Stickeroo A Bunch of Love sheet; stamps - Art Journey Sweet Dreams, Inkadinkado Leaves Mini, best wishes stamp; inks - Big & Juicy Mountain Meadow, Tim Holtz DIs Evergreen Bough, Shaded Lilac and Vintage Photo, Adirondack Peach Bellini, Memento Tuxedo Black; punch - Woodware small butterfly and a corner punch; scallop shaped scissors; teal/white bakers' twine; blue glitter glue

Just as soon as I've unpacked, done all the washing and ironing, I'll be back to see what you all thought of my little exercise. I'll also reveal what is left of the scrap pile on my desk.

It's the weekend so I hope you are all having a terrific time. 

See you soon and happy crafting,

Oh Elizabeth, I just HAVE to link this as a second card into the snippets playground. You'll see why tomorrow - sure we weren't separated at birth? :)

This is one of my fave PB images and I love the blues!

Welcome home, hope you had the best of the weather. I suspect you did thankfully, but it be mighty wet in the Playground right now!

Hugs, Di xx

Most impressed with the way you've been using your snippets and scraps up. We should all do this more often I think! That is a great choice of background for your adorable hedgehog. Love the balance of the colours. Hugs, Jenny x
