  1. Absolutely adorable, Sarah! The touch of glitter is perfect for pixie wings! But what really stands out is how you snipped around her them! The banners are a great mix of patterns and colors. Thanks for playing with The Paper Players...and welcome to blogland!!!

    1. Thank you Katina. I feel very privileged to receive your comments about my post. I adore your cards and style and I've been following you since I purchased my first quick cards made easy magazine some years ago. You are a great source of inspiration.

  4. Hi Sarah! Welcome to Blogland and of course to the Snippets Playground. How lovely that you chose to join us right away, I do hope you'll come and play often. It won't be long before the girls will have you drawn into their Playground mischief - now the weather is warming up I suspect that Mrs A will be blowing up her water wings for swimming sessions in the duckpond!

    Love your card, LOTV is a great fave and the way her wings overlap the circle is a lovely touch. Super too the way the papers all pick out the colours in the image - a really pretty card.

    See you soon!

    Hugs, Di xx

    1. Thanks Di for your lovely comments. I hope to become a regular on the Snippets Playground. Still trying to familiarise myself with blogging as well as finding the time to craft too so hope it won't take me too long to fathom it all out!

  5. Hello Newbie (to the Snippets Playground) . . . you can come over and play on the swings with me if you like! I won't bite, although I do get into mischief in the playground sometimes!

    Love this cute LOTV card with bright spring colours. Gorgeous!

    1. Thanks again Mrs A for the comments on my snippets card too. Really thrilled with all the great comments I've received and only wish I'd got into blogging earlier. See you again soon in the playground.

  8. Hi Sarah, I love your card. I'm always awestruck at what is done with LOTV toppers. You used this one to perfection with all the background papers, and your layout certainly enhanced the image. I 'think' I just became your newest follower, if I did the Bloglovin bit properly. Hope you'll come to see my corner of blogland when you have time, and welcome to the world of blogging. You will meet so many lovely people, and lots of them at the Playground! They are a very encouraging group of cardmakers (not to mention supremely talented & generous as well!) TFS & Hugs.
