Our Snippet Play Day

Saturday was a fun day for Cathy and I.  Virginia was a bit under the weather and decided that home was the best place for her.  We missed her smiling face, and look forward to our next get together.  Cathy and I decided to try out one of my newest Spellbinder dies (Spectacular Spin S5-114).  We used the middle size die.  Pretty snazzy I'd say.  Of course also used is a Martha border punch, a Cuttlebug embossing folder, on the card above another Spellbinder die, the long die, and from Epiphany the #14 round epoxy piece.  I don't know the maker of the rubber stamp sentiment. The card below is the the one we made together and it's done the same way, with the exception of a Hero Arts Sentiment stamp and the tag was created using the Making Memories tag maker and rims.
Seems we are always at a loss when it comes to making boy birthday cards.  I think this one would be perfect.  At least we were hoping so as both Cathy and I are in need of a few boy cards for October. 

I'm off to make some Tomatillo Salsa for my honey and a few of the neighbors.  I'm not a super spicy gal, so depending on how hot the peppers make the salsa, will depend on how much I'll be eating or sharing. 

Speaking of sharing.....I'll be adding my card to Di's blog....Everything was from snippets, which made these cards even more fun...using up scraps is always a good thing.  Check out Di's blog to see what everyone has been up to.  And then before I begin my kitchen chores, I'm going to go check on two very funny gals, Margo and Harriet and their "mum" Sarn.  Have a look here.

Hugs to all, have a crafty week.  I hope to see you on Wednesday.  I'll be playing with the gals tomorrow, if we actually get some crafting done, I'll share the creations. 



  1. They are both fabulous Mary! Love the colors and design.
    Well after all this time Blogger has finally allowed me to follow your blog. I'm #90 yeah!

  2. Wow Mary. What a beautiful pair of cards you have made this weekend. Very cheerful for this horrid weather we all seem to be having!

  3. Oh Mary, these are fabulous! Love the colours and elegance - perfick!

    I'm not sure but the stamp you used on the yellow card might be from the SU 'Sincere Salutations' sentiments set, I just checked mine and am almost sure it is. SU are retiring the set apparently which I think is such a shame :(

    Hugs, Di xx

  4. Hi Mary . . . 2 brilliant snippety snip cards here. Di is right, the sentiment on the first card is part of the Sincere Salutations set by Stampin' Up!.

    Thank you for mentioning my "girls" in your blog.

  5. That spellbinders die has gone gone straight to the top of my must have wish list. Your cards are fabulous. Love the yellow one in particular. Hugs Mrs a.

  6. I believe that first Happy Birthday sentiment is by Stampin' Up. I have one of these cut and tuck dies from Spellbinders! Truly I must dig it out and play with it. I'm not sure if I have the one you do or not but I kind of think so. I love that Martha Stewart border punch! I didn't used to think much of it back when it was everywhere but now that I've seen the light on how cool it is, it is nowhere.

  7. Love these new S/binders...don't have any yet, but yours was so beautifully done. Would be hard to pick one, as both are gorgeous. The MS punch with this S/B is the perfect touch, and I liked the EF you chose also. Yellow was so cheery, and Blue would be great for a masculine card. Isn't it fun to create with a friend? TFS


Thank you for spending time visiting my blog. And thank you even more for your comments. I LOVE reading each and every one of them. Happy creating!
