Lavinia Stamp - Thank You.....

Hello Peeps

Just a short post this afternoon, but I will be back blog hopping later today once I have housey duties finished!  Hate doing housey stuff as it gets in the way of crafting!!  Ho Hum!

Though I am doing the Happy Dance today as I have two new Followers - Bonnie and Toni.  Thank you. Do go check out their blogs as there is some bootiful stuff on them both.

I was recently lucky enough to win the Fairy stamp from my Buddy who runs the Playground which I often frequent.  It didn't take long before hitting the doorstep before I had it inkied up, though I did wait a few days before turning it into a card.  

A little masking, some Distress, Archival and Memento inks and Stickles and a whole lorra fun went in to creating this card.  I wish I had taken a photo of the envelope before posting it as I doodled all over it!!!  I have not heard from the recipient yet, but I am sure she has received it by now.  The lilac backing card was from the Snippets box (does anyone's Snippet receptacles ever go down?) so I shall be taking it to a very soggy Playground.  Why not join us by using Snippets to make anything you wish and link up - we really are a friendly bunch you know!

The Challenge over at Lavinia Stamps this month is "Anything Goes" so I shall be putting this in there too.

Thanks for calling by.  See ya all later and hope you have had a good weekend.  Off to clear the spare bedroom ready to strip wallpaper.  Need to redecorate as we have schpecial guests coming from US later this year so want it schpick 'n' span for their arrival!

Oh Sam, this beautiful card is on my desk in front of me as I type. I adore it! Good enough for Lavinia's DT I think. AND the envelope was a scream - our postie thinks I've got some very eccentric friends. Err, is that a cat's rear end on the back?

Hugs, Di xx

NO, my snippits box is an ever growing pile and I emptied it by giving the contents to the little girl next door! I think the fairies double it while we are sleeping...

You're going to turn me into a fairy stamp admirer after all. This is another beauty using those little pixies. Liked the larger one too, and love that it's a woodland scene. Beautiful colors used to create this one, and congrats to you, for getting this one from our Playground buddy. Isn't she the most generous???I hate housey stuff too. As long as we can kick our way through a path, and the local Health Dept. doesn't pay a visit, I guess we're ok. Not as clean as should be, but not too filthy either!!! LOL. TFS & Happy week
