Possibly Taking Liberties

There was no post from me yesterday because I didn't bother to turn on the computer.  Besides I think August is cheeky for having 31 days right after July does it.  I think it should give up a day and give it to poor February who gets short changed all the time.

I wanted to join Di's Snippet Playground because I haven't been by in forever and I hear the sandbox has fresh sand and the teeter totters have been well oiled so they won't screech.  I suspect I may be taking liberties with the definition of "snippet" though.

Um... okay, I don't actually know the definition of snippet but somehow I don't think a 6x6 piece of patterned paper counts.  But it was in the bookcase! By itself! No rhyme or reason!  It was a little lost soul, which to me fits the definition of snippet.
But just in case that is too big to be a snippet I did use a left over piece of twine that I hid from the kitties, a smidge of blue paper and a scrap of blue to make this card.

I just love this stamp.  It makes me smile every time.  How silly is that that kitties are taking turns getting rides on a giraffe?!  And paying 5-cents for it!  I wonder what the giraffe is saving up for?

The Fine Print: Stamp by Magenta, a good old fashioned fat wood mounted one, twine by A Muse Studio (toffee color) and snippets from my stash.  I really like that paper but I don't know why it was amongst some books and I'm sad I have but that one piece.

Hi Judy - lovely to see you playing :)

Love this card - plenty of snippets - and the twine counts - plus the image made me giggle. Wonder what the giraffe is saving for, throat lozenges for the Winter maybe? :)

Hugs, Di xx

Great card there Judy and I am sure you used Snippets there! What I want to know is where is the Giraffe's pocket?
Hugs

I think he is saving up for a pair of skates (or in his case two pairs). Defo got snippets on your card. Hugs Mrs A.

Possibly a neck brace after all that abuse, eh? Good to see you back at the Playground, PJ! As I see it, you've used nothing but snippets and wonderfully so!!
