Friday Snippets - I see a trend...

Hello Peeps

It is Friday so that means I (usually) post my latest Snippets cards.  I missed last week's posting (so sowwy folks) due to life and stuff getting in the way but I have saved them for you to see this week.  So grab a coffee/tea/wine/Baileys (wish I could join you but I am on antibiotics *sad face) and then I shall begin! 

I don't know if you know my blogging buddy Sandra of Stamping for Pleasure, well a few weeks ago she posted instructions to make a pop up card HERE.  Well, I couldn't resist being able to make something just that little bit different than an ordinary rectangular/square card, not that I have any objection to those, but I am known for being different! Or is that eccentric?  

Well, I made this one for my friend who was poorly whilst she was on holiday in the Bahamas and during the flight home.....

(I don't know why the "Get Well Soon" on the front does not show up well, it did in real life!)
Then I made this one for my Mummy for her birthday.

And this one for my lovely friend Sandra (love that bunting punch, which you can buy through Sandra as she is Stampin Up agent - see her blog for details).
Oh! And this one for my dancing teacher and her hubby on the celebration of their 50th Wedding Anniversary.
You cannot see but it has a gold shimmer of perfect pearls mist on there!
I managed to get some bigger envelopes from eBay so I could use a larger base (6"x12") or (4"x8") or (5"x10"), depending on what size envelope I have handy.  Sorry Sandra, I don't do centimetres!

Well, you know me, I rarely cut into a whole fresh new sheet of paper to make a card so these all qualify for the Snippets Challenge over at Di's Playground.  Feel free to make something using snippets and join with us.  

The sun was shining today and the forecast for the weekend is good, so if I am well enough to play tomorrow I shall see you there, but nothing too spinny or up and down-ey or I am liable to fall off at the moment!  So the go-karts better stay in their sheds!

See you for a gentle game of hide n seek!!

Oh, Sam, you have been busy. These cards are fabulous and very diverse. I especially love the one with the banner. You are inspiring me with these cool pop up cards! Keep it up!

They are all superb Sam. Glad you had fun with my little tutorial. Nice to make something out of the ordinary every now and then isn't it?

Thanks for the SU plug honey! Mwah, mwah! xxxx

Brilliant cards Sam - I love them all, especially the fab job you did with the bunting! Ages since I made a pop up card, gonna have to play soon :)

Hope you feel better soon - steer clear of the roundabout, don't want no 'barfing' in the playground :)

Hugs, Di xx

Hope your feeling a bit better now your on the antibiotics. I made one of these springey cards a while back for my Mum. Once you get to know how the folds go they are nice and easy. Busy knitting Pixie a swimming cozzie cos she is going for a dip in the duck pond.
Hugs Mrs A.
