This is the 10th challenge for Ruby's Memory. The first one was on 7th February last year and thanks to your lovely prize donations, when this final Ruby's Memory challenge closes we will have donated £300 to the USPCA charity (remember we donated £50 over Christmas in case you think the figures don't add up).
Let's get straight onto what the prize is this time and it's a rather bumper and fun one to finish up with - kindly donated by Zoe:
Here's an image of one of the holders made up - borrowed from the Craft Stash website - so you can see the gap which will hold something about the size of a Cadbury's Cream egg or a Kinder egg. Sorry it's so small, if I expand it then it pixelates, but you get the idea:
The prize comprises three 'Easter Egg Holder' die sets - made by Creative Craft Products. They are 'Easter Chick, Easter Bunny and Easter Lamb'. The sets can be 2D or 3D, so they can be used for card fronts as well and they come with a lot of dies per set! Perfect for using up snippets for sure and 'eggselent' for adults and children alike IMHO. The three sets are all included in a single prize by the way - I won't split them up. It would take too much fiddling around doing a triple draw with different choices - not to mention packaging and postage.
As always, the Snippets Challenge will run for two weeks and the Playground gates will close at 11am UK time on Saturday 19th March. The gates will open again at midnight UK time on the same day. Mr Linky is below this post.
Dudley news - on Friday evening we had a slow cooker beef casserole which had been sending out lovely smells for a good few hours. Dudley had already been fed steamed chicken breast (which is his favourite dinner) when it came to us sitting down to eat. Immediately he was up on his hind legs desperately trying to see what it was on the table that smelled so tantalising. Of course he's not tall enough to see no matter how far he tries to stretch up! Len went and got one of his small feeding dishes and we both donated some small pieces of beef, sliced carrots which were originally pinched from Dudley's personal store and cooked in with the casserole, a tiny little dribble of gravy and a teaspoon or so of cheesy mashed potato. Down went his own 'tablecloth' on the floor beside us, then the dish and he was in seventh heaven! The moans of pure delight as he savoured every mouthful were hilarious! For the rest of the evening he wore the biggest smile we've ever seen on him - nonstop - and his eyes were literally sparkling with pure delight.
We've given him tiny little titbits of Christmas dinner etc., in one of his little dishes before now - but for some reason that casserole ticked all his boxes! It's the exception rather than the rule here as we're well aware about what not to feed dogs in case anyone is worried! I'm typing this on Friday evening and right now he's lying flat on his back, gently snoring. We think a lot of his joy came from him feeling included in our meal. Let's just hope he doesn't demand his own high chair so he can sit up at the table to eat with us!
Love and hugs from Dudley and Di, xx
