WOYWW and a snippets card

Hello peeps, I hope you are all well and for those being hit by weather colder than Mars over in the States that you are all ok.  I also hope all those of you in the UK are ok with the gales and flooding (my garage has flooded and the road I take to Bath is closed but apart from that, fingers crossed, we have been VERY lucky as I know many who haven't).

So, on my workdesk this week (I admit I did this Tuesday late afternoon as I am am busy tomorrow) is top left my Darth Vadar handcut snowflake left over from Christmas.  It took so long to cut it out I am loathed to throw it out.  I am tempted to spray it black and cut out the Darth Vadars and use them as toppers!

On the right is a lovely new stamp set (Lynne Perrella collection from PaperArtsy - a Christmas gift from hubby) and a card I made at coven.  I didn't have any UFO's (that I could find any!) so grabbed a handful from my scraps box grabbed my craft grab bag (a few bits and bobs in a small tote that I keep hand for times like this) and my new stamp set and made a card at Coven (our weekly craft get together).

This is the card I made.  I created a background with a stamp, tore up a page from a Chinese newspaper (free as wrapping from a Chinese supermarket) and stamped the image on scrap card and coloured it with DI and a waterpen.

I also had the right shade of purple flower in my scraps box (I really do chuck any old bits and bobs left over in there!) for the purple ink pad I had already in my bag!  It was meant to be!!

I will be entering this over at Di's blog in the snippets challenge.

Finally, my "Man Bites Dog" cards this week....."Rare DNA Dog Tricks Judge!"....I almost dread to pick the papers up this week!!!

So, if you pop over to the  WOYWW blog here you too can have a legal snoop at tables all over the globe!

Happy crafting


  1. Hi there Kyla - love your card! The image is perfect on the recycled newspaper too :) Great to see you in the Snippets Playground again - which is more than can be said for me playing along with WOYWW, sigh.

    Hugs, Di xx

  2. Oh nice stamps! Love the card. But I had to laugh - reading a book and it actually references Man Bites Dog, but as the actual headline, not the game. Still it made me smile....and think of you.

    Happy WOYWW day!

  5. Hi Kyla
    that is a great card just shows what we can do if we put our minds to it and get our scraps out of hiding.
    Have a great WOYWW today and enjoy the rest of your week

  9. Well, as I saw a black Christmas tree with a Darth Vader helmet on it somewhere on Facebook, I think you're onto a winner with your DV snowflake! Sell them next Christmas!
    Love the card too...
    Hugs, LLJ 2 xx

  10. Hi Kyla- I know a few people who would have loved your Darth Vader snowflakes on their windows! The ATc came out great, its lovely when everything falls nicely into place like that. Have a great week, Hugs Shaz #93xx

  11. Oh yes you have to do something with Darth Vadar, am sure you can come up with something. I do chuckle at your love of bits and bobs but it just shows they do help!! Hope you are well and hope to see you at the crop. I will there! I am determined even if I have to use my wheelchair. I don't care as long as I get to see everyone! Take care. Zo xx 90

  12. Your snowflake made me laugh, you can't possible throw it away.
    Love the card you've made, that chinese paper is amazing. Hope the floods subside for you soon. We have been very lucky here in Yorkshire and apart from a bit of wind , the weather has been OK. Hope it stays that way.

  13. Wow! Free chinese paper for wrapping from the supermarket...that sounds so exciting. We (well maybe in the capital cities) don't get anything like that here in Oz and I just love how us crafters can make use of anything! Great card! Vikki #108

  14. Great idea to use the Chinese newspaper as DP. I will have to remember that trick!
    Your card is wonderful.

  15. Hi Kyla, love your snippet card. And how lucky were you to get that Chinese newspaper - definitely serendipitous :) Elizabeth (the very late WOYWWer) x #71
