She has been running the playground for seven 7 wonderful years. I first joined on 13th March 2012, see this post here (for Challenge no 11, early in Di's first year) where I wrote:
“This card also really qualifies for Di's snippets challenge this week, so pop along to the playground for it... that is if you dare - yep, they dip your pigtails in the inkwells over there in the playground”.
Miss Di, I want to say a ginormous warm thank you from Downunder for all your work in running this challenge for so many years.
It’s one of my highlights to join in with the playground, using up snippets... even though they grow faster than they reduce!
I've been grateful for the fun and shenanigans of the playground to brighten my blogging, for almost the 7 years now! And now Miss has an extra helper as well as Parsnip - ‘tis the ultra cutest ever Dudley, who is rather a cheeky distraction in our playground these days! My card.. of the snippety variety again! Recipe below.
Today I decided to revisit an old technique - the salt with water-colour technique, with Brushos! Not sure if anyone else has tried it, but it seemed a good idea. I’m also not sure if it’s my watercolour technique or the salt, but it didn’t react that much! (maybe too it dried quickly in our hot weather?) It has great colour so it didn’t matter that the salt failed to match my expectations. *Used sea salt and regular salt.
*Stamped over one end with Hero Arts background stamp in versamark and added WOW bright white EP.
*Used thank you die cut x-large “thank you” by Honey Bee, bought with Simon says voucher before Christmas and having its first outing today. I die cut three pieces from snippets, two of white, a bottom and top piece, and from base Brusho sheet also cut a top piece.
All have DST to adhere easily.
Added a bit of lace to finish it off. Cut Brusho base in SB stitched rectangle Die, largest one, extended.
So everyone who has snippets (and who doesn’t?) pop over and say thank you to Miss Di and to Darnell’s blog hop and join in the hop too.
Made another card too more in Miss Di's colours.
Also a pickie of our creek in lovely summer colours.. off for swim tomorrow! Hope this warms you up!
Thanks for all the lovely 💕 😊 comments, you really cheer my heart so. And may God bless your day wherever you may be.
Prayer hugs, Shaz in Oz.x
