I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

I quite enjoy joining my friends at the
This is a challenge run by the lovely Di and her helper Parsnip.
The aim is to use up your mounting snippets of paper, and card amounted by creating your creations.
So when Di asked for people who would like to be a GD I put my name to the list of lovely playground friends who were interested.
So this week she kindly asked me if I would like to be her GD.
Of course I said yes, so thank you so much Di for inviting me to be your GD this time around, and thank you for all your hard work involved in this super challenge.
So here is the card I made out of my Snippets for my GD.

This card is a 5"x4" in size.
I started by cutting the shape of the card out of a 6"x6" card blank with my Couture Enchanted Escapes Die.
I used the next to largest die for the shape as there are 4 sizes to choose from.
Then I cut an aperture from my snippets with the smaller die.
I glued some more snippets left over from another project to the inside of the aperture. 
Mounted the whole shape on foam pads for depth.
Cut out some small foliage that came with the die from more snippets, and added some gems, and butterflies given to me by Wendy a good blog friend, and I'm sure she makes these out of snippets too.
Finally I stamped my sentiment with London Fog Ink, and inked around the edges with Milled Lavender Ink.

Thank you so much for your visit, and your precious time.
I very much appreciate your visit, and comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
