WOYWW - Pixie's Crafty Workshop and More

My goodness, the past week just flew by....three days at Paradise Scrapbook Boutique, a Monday crop with the girls and today, my card class....After today, I think I will just sit and enjoy a day of coloring.....

So, here is a thank you card I made last night....Dee Dee and Pete sent me a great cover for my Ipad.  It's one that will be very useful on our trip which is in the not too distant future.  So, here's the card...
The paper line is My Mind's Eye - Indi Collection.  I can not of the pieces was not a snippet, but the rest was made from bits and pieces left over from an attempt at a card that did not please me.  I like what I did with the button.  I couldn't find black cord and I was tired of looking, so I used a strip of the brown trim paper in the button.  If you've got a snippet card, or if you've got snippets waiting to be turned into a master piece....join in with us and play along with Di and the gang at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.  Check out what can be made with snippets.

Two weeks ago Brenda came to play and she brought me a card made by her friend Amy.  She also brought the pattern and directions to make more.  Amy....thank you for this lovely card.  Maybe I'll give this a go when I return from vacation.  Cute little dress and I love all the fancy gems and the ribbon belt is the perfect touch....

I had a great time at Karen's....these are just a few of the great items I came home with.  Her lace is always the best and this time she out-did herself.....Many of these items were treasures I'd won...Now to get busy and get them made into something....This will be my desk top for today.  As nothing much was going on there.  Julia forgive the stretch of the word "Workdesk"  Check out what the more productive gals and guys were up to this week.  Check out WOYWW here.
Last week, I saw this little fella in the tree outside my living room window..... I think he was taking advantage of the day....a full tummy, a warm day and a great nap.
Maybe he was thinking...Thank God It's Friday......

Well, off I go, lots to do before card class.  Have a crafty week, see you all soon,
Mary aka:  Glitter Grammy

  2. Great post, Mary. Your card is lovely - I like the colour combination and great use of snippets. The little dress shaped card is so cute - nice use of fibres for the tie. And isn't that sunbathing squirrel just super ... he clearly knows how to enjoy himself :) Hope you've had a good WOYWW and have a great vacation. Elizabeth x #55
