Results of Challenge #436


What a sad couple of weeks. I think many of us were shaken by how deeply the loss of our beloved Queen affected us and there have been some very poignant and dark days. Sarn and I felt it was right to close the Playground for the Period of National Mourning. Had we not been so totally shocked, I think we would have closed it immediately rather than a couple of days after the news broke, but, that's hindsight for you. However, we're now back in the Playground and ready to have some fun. Come and play!

Here are my top picks from Challenge 436:

Carol L brought this really super Birthday card to share with us.Wonderful use of snippets and all the stars are really great! 

I totally love these adorable little 'stamps' - made by Granne. Brilliant way to use up snippets and so lovely to actually see that the images started off like just as little images - the franking etc. was added by Granne.

And, last but not least of my picks, Becca made a really fresh looking Christmas card. I do love the idea of the bingo card - and that little Santa is the ultimate in dedication to fiddling with tiny snippets for sure!

If you're a pick or, as sometimes happens, a Gold Star winner, please always feel free to collect your badge from the 'Badges' page - click on 'Badges' on the top bar of this page.

Onto the prize draw, for the Pink Ink Designs 'Crazy Birds' stamp set. Obviously, closing the challenge early meant that 'the early birds' did indeed have a chance of 'catching the worm'! The winner is:
