Using Those Snippets!

 
     I recently saw a fantastic background created out of scraps, and the word window punch from SU!  It's not hard to do, it just take a little time.  I also used a fairly new stamp set from TPC called Yarn Crafts.  I found this at Big Lots for $2, and I was really excited because it came to live here just in time for my DIL's birthday.  She recently got serious about knitting.

     For my embellishment, I used some American Craft twine, mini pearls, a button, and a punch from another SU! punch called Petite Petals.

     I would like to enter this at Pixie's Snippets Playground, and also over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, which is Anything Goes, this week.

     It's not quite Hump Day, but make the best of the week ahead!

What a great way to use up those snippets! I love the whole concept of the word window punched bits, but that sentiment completely cracked me up! Fun card!

What a super way to use up some snippets with this punch. That is so clever and worked perfectly with your wonderful $2 stamp! I always love reading about the bargain finds that people discover and then see how these are used. You have a winner with this one, and if your DIL is just into knitting, how she will love receiving this special card. I'm with Carol - love that sentiment!!! TFS & Hugs
