We're doing a huge declutter here and a lot of time is being spent sorting and either Freecycling, taking to local charity shops or dumping stuff that's been accumulated over donkey's years. In fairness, little will be dumped as one man's rubbish is usually another man's treasure as they say :)
Let's get straight on with our Guest Designer for this fortnight - it's Elly of Elly's Creaties with this fabulous card:
|Here's the front|
|A little peek inside|
|And a look at the snippets that Elly used for her glorious die cut flowers|
This is what Elly said about her card:
I have used two snippets for my flower die.
First I layered my card with designer papers and then I used a stencil and made the brick wall with texture paste .
I stamped the butterfly and colored it with markers.
I also layered the inside with designer papers.
The sentiment/textt is on vellum.
I hope you like it.
And a few words about Elly:
Thanks for the opportunity to be a Guest Designer for this challenge.
My name is Elly and I live in the Netherlands.
I've been married to Jan for almost 48 years and we have 2 beautiful daughters and 2 lovely sons in law + 4 granddaughters.
I've been making cards for many years.
I love all kinds of styles and I always like to try something new.

And here's the lady herself:
Little Miss Marple here noticed that the file name of the lovely photo of Elly implies it might be a passport photo - so why do my passport photos always look as if I'm under arrest?
Huge thanks to Elly for being our GD this fortnight and also for being such a loyal Playmate.
Drum roll - it's time for the fortnightly picks! And we have a Gold Star again this time!
Now for my other picks from this past fortnight - and I struggled as always but here are the final three I chose to show you:
This is such an eyecathing way to use up some of those little snippets strips we all seem to hoard! Made by Kath and, although it might look easy, I bet she spent quite a while arranging those colours to achive such a lovely result. Love it - one to remember!
made by Steffi H for you to see. I know, I know - we still have three months until Christmas, but time will fly past. This card is so lovely - and as well as using snippets it's a possible for 'batch baking' :)
49 of you played along last fortnight, with two new Playmates joining us:
|Lavinia - with these adorable pop up box cards|
And Gwendolyn, whose card image I can't copy to this post, but do hop over and take a peek if you can!
Keep those snippets entries coming girls, you still have a week left to play HERE remember! The prize is a set of stamps with matching dies by Lawn Fawn called 'Hang in there' - as well as a set of The Works 'Stitched Circles' dies. I will split the prize (ie. the Lawn Fawn stamps and matching dies together or the Works set of stitched circle dies) if you only want to play for part of it.
Love from the little white peril Parsnip, who sat sobbing on the hallway floor yesterday when he saw me nipping off to the local charity shop with a huge bag of soft toys - I think he thought he might be next! Never fear little chap, you're here to stay for always - I need a little 'troublemaker and spy' in the Playground!
