Snippets to the Max!

     Welcome to another week, and a new post for Pixie's Snippets Playground # 149.  This card has more bits than a horse with it's tack.  I was so happy when people started to include banners on their cards.  It makes for some good use of those strips that are too wide to just toss, but not wide enough to create a whole background.

     That about sums up all of the papers used on this card.  The lacy heart die is from Simon Says Stamp, and the little love die is from PTI.  There is some hot pink burlap, and faceted square gems.  I used one of the threads I pulled from the burlap, to tie a little bow.  Just in case you did not know, if you pull a thread in your burlap, you have a perfect straight line to cut on.

     Since I did use one of Simon Says Stamp exclusive dies, I shall load this on their Anything Goes, Wednesday Challenge.

     Looks like some of my stamping friends had a bit of the white stuff, over the weekend.  Sorry, guys!  We just had cold and wind.  They are starting to hype up about something coming this weekend, so we will see.  Have a great week.

Mary Anne, very sweet card and thank you for the hint about the burlap. I did not know that. I love the combination of papers you used here and that die is very sweet and delicate looking. It snowed here all day yesterday but no accumulation. Very windy here today. Have a fun day.

Hah hah, I'm cracking up over your horse joke! That's a new one on me!!! LOL
Fun card with all those snippets! I just love that panel of text across the heart! This card screams love all over the place - and that's something this whole world needs a lot more of!!
