It never fails, I wash my car and it turns cold and rainy. I had a lovely stay in my PJs all day crafty Sunday. I had so much fun so I don't really want the rain to go away. Did you watch the Queen’s Jubilee Pageant? It was wonderful! I thought the Queen looked absolutely fantastic and seems to have enjoyed it all in spite of the rain.
My Internet service has been spotty at best lately and as it is available ATM I will take advantage of it and post all three of my snippet cards at once.
My first card is for our niece Maggie’s birthday. Maggie loves orange and green. I find orange a difficult color to work with so lots of green. I’ve stamped my background with a flourish stamp using ColorBox Celadon ink. I’ve used SB Labels Seven and MS butterflies. The butterflies were painted with glitter nail polish which sparkles IRL but doesn't show up in my photos. And a little tip, don't fold your wings until your Liquid Pearls has dried.
My second card is for our granddaughter Kili’ohu’s birthday. Kili loves hot pink, another difficult color for me so again lots of green. I’ve used the same layout and background. I’ve wanted this fabulous SU Bird Punch since it first came on the market but anyone who knows me knows I can’t bring myself to buy anything unless I have a coupon or it’s on sale. Jim got fed up with me being such a tight wad and insisted I get it for my birthday or as he said he would find a way to get it himself. Bless his heart. I LOVE IT! My flower is made up of a number of flowers layered together.
My third card is for our niece Vicky who will be having surgery this week. I’ve used my lovely SU Bird Punch, Sizzix Branch w/ Leaves, EK Success 1” Circle, Scalloped Border and Flower punches, MS Hydrangea punch, Darice Wood Grain EF and SB Classic Oval Lg. All that and I still feel something is missing.
I always punch out more foliage then I need so I've dipped into that little stash of extras and used a bit on each card. Everything not mentioned came from my stash as well.
You don’t want to see the mess I’ve made in The Closet. (I don’t what to see it either.) It’ll take quite some time before everything is back in order. I should be cleaning but I’m headed to the playground to share with Di and the gals instead. I know I’ll need to dry off the swing before I get on but I much prefer that to burning my fanny like I did last time. Come join the fun at Di's Snippet Playground.

Whatever you are up to today I hope it will enjoy yourselves.
