Hello Playmates - I'm just popping back in the middle of Di's challenge, to share my Top Picks from the previous challenge with you, and to let you know who won the prize.
My top picks - in entry order - are as follows:
I simply adored this pretty floral card by Linby. Very envious of her gorgeous dies and how she managed to create this beautiful arrangement!
Then Alice brought along this super seaside-themed card using up gelli prints and recycled materials too. Very creative Alice.
My final pick is by Susan B who entered a festive snippets card - again using some lovely dies. I thought this would keep you in the mood for our current CHRISTMAS IN JULY challenges!
It's always difficult to choose just three out of your wonderful entries! If you've been showcased, please feel free to collect your 'Top Picks' badge from the 'Badges' page HERE.
Challenge #431's winner is . . .
Congratulations Alice - you've been showcased AND you're the prize winner - go and buy a lottery ticket! LOL! Please claim your prize by sending me an email using the Snippets Playground address shown in the sidebar, with PLAYGROUND WINNER in the subject line. Please ensure you add your full name and address so that it can be copied and pasted for speed and ease.
Cocktails in the Playground:
As you know . . . Miss Di challenged me to get some extra homework done in the shape of finding a cocktail suitable for "Christmas in Summertime" . . . and I think I've found just the thing. Once the research was done, I roped in Lesley G to help with all that cocktail shaking . . . because she'd already mentioned she was a dab hand at making Eggnog!
In a cocktail shaker add Eggnog, Amaretto & Vodka PLUS a dollop of Vanilla Ice Cream (the ice cream is the secret to making this a SUMMER cocktail)! Lesley and I used caramel sauce to rim the glasses, then added cinnamon sticks and a little cinnamon and nutmeg sprinkled on top to garnish. If you fancy one of these beauties . . . just come on up to the Treehouse Bar and order one . . . calorie-free of course, being virtual 'n' all that! They will certainly help you get your homework done! Expect another summer cocktail next week - which might just be Miss Di's favourite (she's testing a few of them out first)!
Remember there's still nearly a week to go for the current Snippets Playground challenge - just scroll down to the previous post to find it.
