Results of Challenge #430


Mixed weather and generally a very mixed up World right now. Even Dudley is chasing his tail for fun!

Here are my top picks:

I picked this 'Birthday fishes' card by Carol L for a few reasons. Great design, super use of teeny snippets for paper piecing ..... and it made me really chuckle! What's not to love? 

Liz always comes up with clever ideas for ways to use up snippets - and this is no exception! I so love the circles just floating around the sentiment - just perfect!

I had to pick this card, made by Denise. Denise really never, ever disappoints and this Christmas card uses snippets and also stays close to CAS and elegant. Not easy!

I just couldn't stop at three, try as I might - so we have four picks this time - in numerical order. My final pick is this wonderful and so feminine card made by Lynne. Beautiful as always - pretty and elegant combined! So lovely.

As always, we had some really 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, for a stamp and a set of matching dies - kindly donated by Brenda.  And the winner is:

Susan Sudbery


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, being allowed to run riot hosted by Sarn, still has almost a further week to run - just scroll down to the previous post to find it. 

IMPORTANT NEWS! From the next challenge (which begins in a week's time folks!) we will have two back-to-back 'Christmas in July' challenges (i.e. four weeks in total). Both Sarn and I each have a lovely bundle of Christmas craft goodies to offer as our prizes. And this time we ARE making a stipulation. You must make something Christmas themed or a Christmas card to come and join in with the chance to be a pick or in the prize draw. This is fair notice - it's a week until the new challenge begins - and surely you would like to play ............ as well as increase your stock of Christmas cards? We will revert to 'anything goes' again afterwards - but do please play nicely, according to the rules and also our 'Christmas in July' Christmas theme - else your entry might be deleted.

I've made a card using duplicate set of dies which are part of the Challenge #431 current prize. It's over on Pixies HERE - just to whet your appetite! Far out!

Love from Di and Dudley (Mister W-B)
