Playing with Snippets


     Today we are having our deepest snow of the season, and since I am home from work, what better playtime than using up some snippets.

     I received two great die sets from Santa, and they are made by a new to me company.  It is called Little B.  One is called Baby, and the other is called Handwritten.  They are very intricate, and cut well.  Each set comes on a magnetic board, that holds them securely.  Sooooooo, I pulled out my tub of scraps, and cut a bunch of baby onsies in many colors, to use on cards.  The stork is from the same set.  There are 18 word dies in that set, and I chose congrats for my card.  I also used a frame that was once a punch out from an 8x8 pad.  My only embellishment is a twine bow.  My kraft background is embossed with Sizzix Decorative Dots folder.

     I will be entering this over at Pixie's Snippets Playground: Must use snippets # 166
.
     I see more of these cards in my future, especially when I break down and get stitched rectangles to make frames.   Thanks for the visit, and make it a good day!

Santa was very good to you this year. You must have been on his nice list. You made very good use of your gifts creating this darling card. Enjoy the day tomorrow.

I don't have to worry about that anymore!
