Here's hoping we haven't seen the last of the recent warmer weather we've been having - the past few days were pretty gloomy, despite all the pretty Spring flowers bursting into life. Thankfully we've since had some sunshine here - yay!
Straight onto the 'picks' now:
Val came to play with this really great card - a set of shelves with lots of lovely books to read - plus a sleeping kitty, aw so cute. Lots of lovely snippets used and a lot of detailed work as well! Lovely card.
What a great card, made by Caroline (KISS). to celebrate her daughter gaining a PhD. She certainly is a super star and Caroline brought such a great way to use up plenty of different coloured snippets - this is a design I think you might want to try for yourselves?
I do so love this card, it made me really have the giggles. Made by Lynne in NI, a super fun card and great use of snippets. I giggled all the more when I read further and discovered that the 'parachute' half deployed is actually the bunny's ears!
It reminds me very much of a guy I've nicknamed the 'Red Baron' who has started up his annual 'flights for thrills' from a nearby airfield. At times I'm sitting here, emailing Sarn on Snippets business, whilst waiting for the Red Baron, doing his 'loop the loops' complete with white silk scarf, to end up looking at me with a sheepish expression ..... with his plane's cockpit embedded through my craft room window.
And as a grand finale - perhaps we need an extra prize for 'using up your oldest snippets'! Karen (Ladd) recalled punching a load of these hexagons - and it turns out to be closer to 20 years than the 10 years ago she originally thought! But, it does show all the more how we really ought to hang onto every scrap of card and paper we can for future use! A lovely card as well Karen - even if we had to wait a while ☺
As always, we had some great entries. If you're a pick, please always feel free to collect your 'Top picks' badge from the 'Badges' page.
Onto the prize draw, set of dies and stamp set kindly donated by Brenda of 'Floral Fantasies'. And the winner is:
To claim your prize, please send me an email using the Snippets Playground email 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.
The current snippets challenge still has almost a further week to run - just scroll down to the previous post to find it.
For news of Dudley - go and peek at 'Pixie's' over HERE. He's still nosing around, and reporting back, in the Playground - but I keep his more personal stories, adventures and updates on my own Pixie's blog now. I do know that flying around on Maypoles make him 'car sick dizzy' - don't even go there!
Love from Di and Dudley (Mister W-B) xxx
