Afternoon, all! It's another cold, grey day here in Hertfordshire - flaming August!

I got out my snippets boxes and made a Christmas card! I cut 3 strips of 2 different papers and wove them into a square, stuck it on a blue mat, and added a die-cut snowflake and a Christmas tree, also out of snippets of plain card. I glamour-dusted them and voila!

The dies are both Marianne, and the tree is new!

I'm going to enter the lovely Jules's Snippets Challenge. On Sundays she challenges herself, and anyone else who wants to join in, to use up papers that have already been used before. If you haven't seen her blog, do go and see!

Thanks for looking!

luv, Mags x

Hi Mags

What a great idea!!

I love your paper weaving very much. It looks like a Christmas patchwork quilt!!

The snowflake and Christmas tree are just enough to finish your card off perfectly ... gorgeous!!

Thank you for heading along to the snippet playground this week.

Love Jules xx
