What, no Guest Designer I hear you cry? Absolutely right - but we do have a celebration anyhow. Today is this lovely lady's Birthday:
Some of you already know that Darnell recently had surgery and is still recovering - so no swinging from the Playground's rope ladders for her just yet!
Darnell is every bit as delightful in real life as her photo suggests - this time last year she was busily packing her spotted hankie for her 'epic tour' of the UK - which many of us will never quite recover from :)
So, dear friend - we send you our love, friendship and sincere wishes for a marvellous Birthday. Psst, mine's a Gray Goose Gin and Tonic or soda please - with the lemon squeezed over it ...... including the pips! Darnell and Mrs A will relate to this little tale - our hotel in Southampton last year certainly wouldn't win any prizes for making relatively straightforward drinks to order!
Now for my picks from this past fortnight - the usual difficulty in whittling a very long list down to three picks - tough call as always:
That's my three picks - I do hope they will inspire you as well girls. Of course we had loads of fabulous ways to use up snippets and I really had to be very firm with myself and not add in at least three more cards from the short list. I highly recommend that you grab a cup of coffee and spend some time visiting blogs - the thumbnails with links are always there for you to look back over.
49 of you joined in this past fortnight, I could see the numbers almost stand still as we went through our mini heatwave! And, right at the last minute, we also have one new Playmate:
Well done Greta - can you please drop me an email with your address in and I'll post your prize off as soon as possible. My email address is on the right hand side bar.
Keep those snippets entries coming girls, you still have a week left to play HERE remember! And the prize is a Crafters Companion 'Baby Bamboo' stamp set (kindly donated by Val ), a set of The Works 'Stitched Squares' dies and a Bow-Easy bow maker. I will split the prize if you only want to play for part of it.
Love from the little white peril - and of course from me too
