Snippets Card

Hello Friends

Sorry I have been MIA for the last day or two.  Feeling a bit sorry for myself with the treatment I am currently receiving and just too tired to do anything when I come in from work.  I am sure that when I am used to it all I will be back to my usual self!  Hope so anyhoo!

So on to my post today.  Just a simple Snippets card using a stamping I made ages ago made by inking the stamp with DIs and spritzing with water before stamping on to watercolour paper, double mounted on card out of the Snippets box, a gem leaf and a flower embellie which I layered with a punched Snippet.  I hate to think how long I have had those flower embellies so they are v VOS!

A little fluff and a stamped tag and hey presto a card for my box to use on a day when I have forgotten someone and need a card pronto.  I am taking this over to the Snippets Playground.  Tis about time the chooks were cleaned out and it is my turn on the rota!  Parsnip is a task master you know, just cos Miss is on her teacher training!

I love the delicate look of this card and you have used some of that fluffy wuffy stuff too!! hope you feel better soon on your treatment. Waiting for Accupuncture treatment for my hip which is taking a long time to get authorised by hospital cos of cut backs which doesn't help me any. Not been blogging much either. Hugs Mrs A.

Sorry to hear you are not well, huge hugs. I must try this technique again when I tried before I think I sprayed it too much. Lovely fluffy stuff and a gorgeous VOS too x

Dreamy and so delicate, as though it could be whisked away by a light breeze.
Take good care, it is miserable to feel poorly so I do feel for you.

Sam, what treatment? I'm sorry I'm out of the loop on this and don't know to what you refer. It must be bad if it warranted a pity party. If I'd known I'd have joined in from here! I love a good party and pity ones can be the best sometimes!!

This is such a lovely feminine card. I would love it if you would link it up with the current "MUSE card club" challenge where I am this week's GD. Your card goes great with my layout ...

I did get in on Rudolph Day today since it was the same day as PTI's blog hop and our theme was Christmas tags.

HUGE hugs to you! I do hope you feel better soon! Darnell
