Here are my top picks from Challenge #440. It actually turned out that they are all Halloween/Autumn based picks. Not deliberately, as the challenge was also 'Anything Goes' and that wasn't ignored at all - but they just seemed to call out to me:
Oh goodness me - who could resist this delightful 'puddy tat' treat bag, made by Helen - HERE. Such fun and I just love how Helen is so fond of Penny Black stamps and always finds way to keep them up to date. Penny Black do recognise that some of their older stamps are the best, by only now producing matching dies for some of the best loved 'oldies'.
I chose this image by Karen C for a few reasons. Mostly that it really suits the Autumn/Fall optional theme. It's also really lovely and hugely pleasing to the eye - AND it shows super use of snippets! What's not to like? It's hard to go far wrong if you choose horizontal or vertical strips of snippets - especially with mitred ends - clever move there Karen!
And here we have a card made by Heather - just stunning! And a very fitting finish to my choices for the challenge. It just sums up the Season and also what is ahead perfectly! Love it and the clever layers are always so eye catching.
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 dies and sentiment stamps - and the winner is:

The current snippets challenge is being hosted by Sarn and still has almost a further week to run - just scroll down to the previous post to find it. There's a nice prize to be won as well!
Little word of warning - Sarn is a bit of a Christmas 'Early Bird' compared to me. Dudley, and his still much loved pal Parsnip, both 'snitched' independently to me that she's been rummaging around in the storage lockers behind the bike shed looking for Christmas decorations etc, muttering along the lines of 'THIS year we WILL beat Regent Street's Christmas lights'. Oh help!
