Pixie's Snippets Playground - Challenge #418 - Grand Draw results

Oooer, we even have a proper results badge for the new Snippets Playground! I'm so pleased you all seem to like the Playground's new home - 'where the sun is always shining'. And, hooray, on Wednesday and Thursday we truly did have some lovely sunshine here as well - Dudley certainly had more of a 'Spring' in his step after his walks as well. ☺ Mind you - we had to then chase him around the house to pop him into the utility room sink to have his legs and undercarriage washed as it's still very damp underfoot. My word, he can move like a little rocket, and naturally he thought it was a great game.

Let's not hang about though, here are the picks from our previous challenge and as it was a four week long challenge, we have a total of six picks this time round.
The first one is actually a *Gold Star* too:

Kitty totally blew me away with her fabulous snippets iris-folded ornament. It's absolutely stunning! A really worthy *Gold Star* winner. Please collect your badge, if you wish of course, from the badges page/tab above.

Stunning card from Glennis - perfect use of snippets and so CAS and elegant!

Linby made such a gorgeous snippets card - love the design and a great combination of papers as well! 

Wowser, another wonderful card - this time from Lesley G. Fabulous use of snippets and such a gorgeous result too.

Liz Cavill is one of my ever widening circle of 'I will enable you to spend on craft goodies' friends and this fabulous card is no exception! Gorgeous snippets patchwork quilt and such a great embossing folder as well.

And last, but never least, our lovely buddy Alison hopped in with some brilliant Christmas gift tags! Always perfect for snippets busting and something to aim for next Christmas! 

Please feel free to collect your 'Top Picks' badge from the badges tab/page at the top of the blog. 

That's the picks from Challenge #418 in the Playground and we had 68 entries - great going girls!

Many congratulations to the lucky winners and massive thanks to all of you who came along to play! As always, I wish that everyone could be a prizewinner.

To claim your prize:

Please send me an email using the NEW Snippets Playground gmail address shown on the RH sidebar, with PLAYGROUND WINNER (or similar) in the subject line. Please add your FULL NAME above your home ADDRESS so that I can copy and paste it for speed and ease.

26 prizes will take me some time to package up, possibly print 'click and drop labels'(which is extra fussing around) and then get posted off to the winners in perhaps two or three batches so please be patient. I will add something on this new blog to keep you updated rather than send out individual emails to everyone. 

Remember folks, there's still almost one more week to run on the current challenge #419 - just scroll back a couple or so posts to find it.

Lots of love from Dudley Dog and of course me,

Di xx
