Playground snippets 369

Happy new year to you all
I hope you had a lovely time
l lost a family member (suddenly)
So in between Xmas and new year
Wasn't too good but you pull through
Which is great coming from a large family
We are always there for each other
l find crafting eases my pain kind of therapeutic 
This is my first post of the year
And what better to use but snippets of card
So this is what l made for the challenge below
Made with snippets and a freebie image
Added some Gems and stitched edge Die
l made 3 of these cards slightly different layout
But the same image 
Thank you for your visit
Hope you have a great week ahead of you
And sending lots of TlC for those who need it
Sandra H

I can't find your email address for Mary's snail mail address. Can you please ping me an email and I'll get back ASAP. Thanks. Have had to pull the plug on searching for email addresses from purely blog comments - taking me ages. Which is good news of course! A lovely response so far!

Love, Di xx

Love this Sandra. Such a gorgeous image and th3 papers behind work perfectly with one another. So sorry to hear of your loss over the Christmas period. A shock at any time of the yr but more so at a festive time. Hugs Mrs A.

Darnell said...

Excellent use of snippets of pp, Sandra, and they are all beautifully coordinated! That party girl is gorgeous and playful with her drinkie-poo and handful of balloons! PARTY!!

I'm very sorry to hear that there was a sudden death in the family right after Christmas. I agree with you about crafting being very therapeutic and distracting when you need it to be. All the best. Hugs, Darnell

Di said...

A lovely card Sandra! Super image as well. I'm so sorry to read about the loss of one of your family, as others say, at Christmas it seems all the more poignant. I too find crafting is a good escape when the going gets tough.
