Snippet card

I am definitely finding the reorganisation of my snippet draw a benefit, I found all the items for this card in there. My craft room is a mess at the moment though as I try to sort it into a working space as I have stuff all over the
place and have never really organised it properly. I bought one of those rolling carts  and although I thought I only had a few 12 x 12 packs I have managed to fill all 10 draws and couldn't fit another pad in. I found the
pads all over the place and in some quite unusual places too so it will be nice to be able to actually see what I have and maybe it will stop me buying more...unlikely but you never know.

So onto the card, I have used a fab stamp, perfect for paper piecing too, from MFT called "Geek Guy", as soon as I saw this I knew I had to get it as so many of my family are into their computers I knew I would get lots of use out of it.

I have used a new, well to me anyway, piece of equipment on this card, as I have been laid up with my knee I have been watching lots of you tube and a few presenters in particular. Amy R uses a Stampin Up Mat Stack to position her brads and I had to have one, placed an order with Jules and it arrived really quickly and it has already been put to use.

Sentiment: "Big Greeting" MFT Stamps
Papers: "Cozy Sweater" Shabby Shoppe (all in the snippet draw with enough left for another card too...shocking)
Cardstock: Snippet Draw
Brads: Stash
Tools: Stampin up Mat Stack, MFt Flagstak dies

Challenges: Snippet Playground

Craft, space, orgainized. Do those 3 words go together then?!!!!!!
That must be where I'm going wrong.
Great stamp for a man's card. hugs Mrs A.

Great card there and such a tricky subject that - men!
You have my deepest sympathy with your knee problem. I had mine operated on last year and on Saturday I managed to twist it - big owch. It appears to be non-lasting as it isn't hurting so much today.
Thanks for becoming a follower. I hope I meet up to your expectations!
