What a great fortnight's challenge that was Sarn - thanks so much for running two prize draws, the usual one, plus one for the Jubilee. That already seems a while ago now - the Playground is all tidied up, the bunting is down and the empties have gone to recycling. ☺ No doubt there will be something new happening before long though.
For me, the highlight of the weekend's official events was our Queen with Paddington Bear right at the start of the 'Platinum Jubilee Concert'. I will never hear the opening beats of Queen playing 'We Will Rock You' without thinking of our own dear Queen (and Paddington) tinkling their cups and saucers to the beat! Totally brilliant! And what a good sport HM is, as well as so human when you see her in a 'normal setting'. HERE is the full video of HM and Paddington on YouTube - in case you missed it. ☺
As always, the Snippets Challenge will run for two weeks and the Playground gates will close at 11am UK time on Saturday 25th June. The gates will open again at midnight UK time on the same day. Mr Linky is below this post.
The latest news of Dudley is also over on my own Pixie's blog post for today - HERE. He needs to go to school to learn good manners!
Fantastic snippets card using a lovely dieReplyDelete
Yep - the Jubilee Tea Party was a lot of fun. Thanks for clearing up so many empties. We did a lot of washing-up too didn’t we, but everyone had fun. Although We’ve yet to ascertain for sure who lit that beacon so close to the Treehouse!!!!! X
Phew! Although I got in first, and enjoyed a lovely hot buttered crumpet in the Treehouse Breakfast Club, I nearly panicked when Mr Google wouldn’t let me comment. Managed to change one of my settings and hey presto I’m now allowed to speak! I’ll say no thanks to this one Di, as I’ve got lots of other new stuff to play with at the moment, but good luck everyone! XxxReplyDelete
Fabulous snippets card, Di. I’ll be a Yes Please for my name to go into the draw. Great Jubilee Tea Party, but it wasn’t me who lit the beacon so close to the Treehouse. Rumour has it that it was Sarn, but don’t tell her I told you. 😉 xxReplyDelete
Whaatttt? I deny everything!!!Delete
Dudley snitched anyhow! xDelete
What A PERFECT Snippets card Di! I love the colors!!! Thanks for the Jubilee video! I'll just be playing for fun this time!!!ReplyDelete
What a wonderful snippets card with those lovely papers! I just love the colorful way you designed this and I have to smile every time I see it! Playing just for fun this time, but I'll see you around the treehouse for some antics I'm sure :)ReplyDelete
Beautiful card. Love this vibrant colors.ReplyDelete
Fabulous inspiration, great die to use snippets! Thanks to Jackie T for the amazing prize, love it so much, is very elegant! Hope to have time to play.ReplyDelete
Also in Italy there were a lot of videos about your Queen's Jubilee!
Hope Dudley could learn good manners quickly :D
I love this fun group! The teasing about the mischief- or perceived mischief- makes me smile! I especially loved sharing in the excitement of the 70th Jubilee. It's so much more fun when I now have friends who live across the pond. Plus, I really do admire your Queen. Now... let's talk about prizes. I raise my hand with a yes please for being in the draw. Thanks for the opportunity!ReplyDelete
FAB make and prize .. just uploaded my own entry but I'm just playing for fun this time aroundReplyDelete
Just found the new site - its been a hectic few months - it looks amazing and an amazing card for inspiration - so fresh. YES please to playing this month. Hugs EmmaxReplyDelete
Your card Di is gorgeous l looked at the dies on the sight you highlighted there are some gorgeous dies lovely use of snippets too xxReplyDelete
Just playing for fun good luck all who take part xxReplyDelete
Wow, such a wonderful card Di, and an inspiration for me to try later. I always love the look of a white die cut with brightly colored papers. I enjoyed the Paddington tea party with the Queen when I saw it online during the Jubilee, and loved that sense of humor that was so well showcased. The party at the treehouse was even more fun than the Paddington video..and a lot noisier too, haha! I think I overdosed on cake, but I'll just have to cut out dessert this week to make up for it. Totally worth it though.ReplyDelete
Yes Please to the prize, as that's a beautiful stamp and die.
Just playing for fun. CarolGReplyDelete
Thanks for the link to Paddington and the Queen. I didn't see the whole thing until now. So sweet! Yes, please to the prize.ReplyDelete
Beautiful card Di, I love that fancy die you have! I'm playing just for fun 😁ReplyDelete
The Paddington sketch was fab, I would have loved to have seen the Queen's reaction when she saw it herself!
Loved that video of the Queen and Paddington Bear - what a woman our Queen is!!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous card, think I might have to invest in that die! I am just playing for fun this time. Sorry I missed the Queen's Jubilee Playground Party, it sounds like lots of fun and naughtiness was had by all! The Paddington sketch was priceless! Will pop over to see what Dudly has been upto a bit later. Take care and hugs my friend xxxReplyDelete
Jolly good die for using up snippets, love the card. I'm just playing for fun this timeReplyDelete
Thanks for the video link. It is sweet and fun. Yes please on the prize.ReplyDelete
Absolutely love your card, Di! Thank you for the video link as I'd love to see it. I'm just playing for fun this time.ReplyDelete
Even from my side of the pond the news showed the Queen having tea with Paddington Bear!! That was the best part of the whole Jubilee I think. Sorry I missed tea in the tree-house but I had several cups here in her Majesty's honor. Yes please for the prize too. I used a lot of bigger snippets this time for me.ReplyDelete
I am looking at my overflowing NBUS box and think it's best if I don't enter the draw for the prize this time but what a beauty it is! So generous of Jackie T. I absolutely love your card Di and will be hopping over to your blog to see how you made it (and Eva wants to know what Dudley has been up to as well!!) Hugs, Vicky xxReplyDelete
Thanks for the prompt Sarn - I WAS playing hide and seek and I'm afraid I dozed off in the middle of it all...don't know WHAT was in that hot chocolate I had in the treehouse but my homework has now been handed in!ReplyDelete
Oh wow - love your bright & cheerful card Di!ReplyDelete
I'm playing just for fun (and snippets mountain reduction) this week.
Yes, please, to the beautiful prize! It seems like it's been so long since I've been to the playground. Whatcha serving for a cocktail today, Sarn? I commented on Di's card at her site. I just love the die she used.ReplyDelete
