Thank You and Get Well - Snippets

Hello Lovely Bloggers

Well, here we are in July and no change to the weather and no sign of Summer 2012 yet!  Never mind, we still have August and September to look forward to!

I wanted to make Hubby a Get Well card and a card for my dear Friend last week, and now I know both have received their cards I can now post them for you to see.  First is Hubby's......

From the photo it looks that the sentiment "Feel better soon" is wonky but I can assure you it isn't in the flesh, so to speak.

Here is my friend's card......
Both cards were made using a Sizzix die, the book pages were from a French novel which I bought at a Charity shop, the bees are from Jo Copper-Sandon's stamp (well, it is mine really as I bought them, but Jo designed them!), not sure what make the chicken wire stamp is, the sentiments were from SU, Hero Arts and K & Company.  The ribbon was brought back from USA and this is its first outing.  It cost a small fortune so I am limiting its use!

As they were made using Snippets I can have a play in the Playground.  Why not join us?  Liberate your snippets pile, make a card or layout or anything else you wish and link up with the Playground Keys Keeper and you too can play.  Anyone joining me on the monkey bars?

Please don't forget to sign in the visitor's book so I know you have been and then I can pop over to your blog!

Oh Hettie, they are fantastic, love the bee theme. The ribbon looks very special so totally understand why you're not using loads but it's still very eye catching!

Bought some PB stamps, oops!

Have a great night x

Great bee cards, that ribbon is brilliant, nice layering and the chicken wire stamp is perfect. I hope I don't loose you again LOL Gay xx

Oooh! So pretty! I love the bees and honeycomb. Love how you layered it all together.

Not my favourite insect as the little blighters always make a straight line for me with me dashing off into the distance!! Like the honeycombe effect on your cards though. Like eating the stuff too. (Would probably why the bligthers hate me then!!) Hugs Mrs A.

I'll join you on the monkey bars but I haven't made a snippets card yet. Am hoping to make time later today :) That is the perfect ribbon for these cards, can see why you wanted it. Fab stamps too!

Ooh . . . I'll come and play on the monkey bars with you. Ooh ooh ooh (scoops hands under arms monkey fashion).

Both gorgeous cards. I can vouch for one of them being EVEN BETTER IRL than the picture shows. Such a lovely design Sam. xxx
