Pixie's Crafty Workshops...Snippet Challenge

Well, here I am again....I've been working on cards for Operation Write Home.  I decided that I'd pull out a box of snippets and make as many as I could with whatever I found in that one envelope.  Well, I put together 14 kits, which will be assembled soon.  I was actually amazed with how many cards came from that snippet box.  The label on the bag said green, which was pretty amazing, because very little in that bag was green...I must have put them into the box in the dark!  This is one of the cards I put together.....

The layouts are very similar, the finished cards will look the same, but different (a phrase my kids used years ago!)  Here's what my desk looked like as I was putting the kits together.  See what I mean, not too much green in the green box....

More about OWH keep checking in to find out some exciting news....which will be coming soon!

Di over at Pixie's Crafty Workshop is the sponsor of the snippet challenge.  If you need a reason to use those snippets, she'll steer you in the right direction.  While there, how about peeking into the playground.  It's fun to put our hair in pigtails and skip past the gates to meet the sweetest people anywhere.  Thanks Di for giving us a fun place to play...

A reminder check the blog post 8/15/2012:  My blog-aversary is coming up in September. I usually remember it, right after it's gone by. But this year I'm planning ahead and I want to celebrate by gifting some lucky person a bag of goodies. What's in the bag? I have no idea, why? Because every day something new goes inside. If my math serves me....there should be 29 items in the bag. And....I'll ship, all you gals across the could win! Here's the way to win....Follow me! ....and then leave a comment. What if you already follow me? Well, then just leave a comment. What if you don't have a blog page.... well, then leave a comment with your first name and last initial. might win too! Every time you comment you will have your name put into the drawing. Only one comment per post please....Here's the bag I'll be putting the goodies into.....If you look closely, there is already a treat inside.....

Note: Before I receive questions about why does blogspot list me as a member since July of 2008 and I'm claiming September 12 of 2009. I signed up for blogspot in July of '08, and then really didn't do much of anything until September of '09. So, I've picked my blog-aversary as of the September date, when I started counting visits on Clustermap. that that is addressed.....

Those of you who know me, know I don't (usually) post every day, but every day something will be going into the bag.....September 11th is the last day to Follow and/or comment... Off I go, I've got shopping to do! When I announce the winner, you will have 24 hours to claim your prize. If you don't....I'll draw another name.
I found something fun to put into the bag....want to see it? peeking!  I did take  the names of those who are following my blog and entered them into the drawing....
Off I dinner, packing for a play day tomorrow.  I'll be working on my album...

Again, have a great week, and don't forget to enter the drawing.....

  1. Sweet! Thought I was a follower but must have been an RSS feed cause my name wasn't on the list...but it is now! Vickie

  2. Wow Mary, how exciting :) And also how generous of you.
    hugs, Di xx
    Love your snippets card and I bet those others will be as fabulous when they're done. I'm working with green and aubergine here right now - so obviously I totally adore the green card.

    And thank you for the sweet things you wrote :)

  3. Ha, you've got some really interesting shades of "green" there Mary!! Great idea to lay the cards out like like to see the colours and the patterns, and the finished items is really pretty and for such a great cause too.


  4. Hi Mary . . . that's very generous of you. Good luck everyone!

    Love that snippet card and can see the rest will be just as lovely.

  5. Snippet away! Your cards will truly be a blessing!

  6. The OWH is a very worthwhile endeavor. Our group was doing that for a while...we need to get back to it, summer plans have sort of disbursed our usual gatherings. Your card was lovely, and the layouts are going to make great cards too. Thanks for the chance to win a generous gift from you, and HAPPY BLOG-A-VERSARY...early! Can't wait until I've been at this blogging bit for a year!!! TFS and hope it was a fun shopping trip.

  7. love your card! so elegant!
