A couple of 'snippet' cards

While my mojo was having a holiday yesterday, I decided to give up on making 'proper' cards and see what I could make from my scraps.



I quite enjoyed myself, and will definitely make some more of these.  After a frustrating day where nothing seemed to be coming together properly, it was quite relaxing just to shuffle bits of paper around and see what happened :o)

As they're made from my 'snippets' this means I can finally join in with Jules' Crafty Snippet Challenge and I'm also entering them for Creative Card Crew's 'no stamps' challenge.  Although I'm not sure if the 2nd card qualifies as the sentiment is stamped.

Thank you for all the lovely comments yesterday... I was obviously having a negative day and really appreciated them :o)

  23. Its always amazing when you look in your scraps box and realise what papers you have . You have made some lovely cards with yours.
    I'm married to a second generation Pole. His dad came over during the 2nd WW, unfortunately my OH never learnt Polish which seems such a pity.
