I can't believe it's been well over a year since my last post. I have suffered really badly from anxiety over this last year and a bit and I lost interest in crafting.  I think I'm over it now and am starting to get a bit more enthusiastic about making cards and crafting again.

I'm glad to see my favourite challenge blog Less is More is still going strong and I've have made a couple of cards to enter into this week's challenge.

This week is a celebration as it's Chrissie's 70th birthday - happy birthday Chrissie, I hope you have a wonderful time.  

The challenge is all about 'Snippets' - so here's my efforts:

My first card has used a snippet of ribbon I found in my ribbon/string bag of bits.
The image is from Miss Katie Cuttables

My next card is made using bits of card and I have used alphabet dies from Mollymoo,  stamps from Card-io and birthday die from Rob Adams:

Well I did enjoy making these - I'd forgotten how craft has the ability to absorb you into a little world of your own and take your mind off your woes.

Thank you for dropping by and I hope to be a regular again.

WOW! Stunning snippety makes here Sue and I'm so glad you've dipped your toe into the crafting circle again! Struggling with a similar condition I find crafting keeps me 'sane'!
Best wishes and thanks so much for sharing and taking part this week.

Two wonderful cards. I LOVE your little elephant card, such a cute image and your offset panels look great. So sorry you've not been well but hopefully some crafting again will give you some happy time.
