Results of Challenge #442


Here are my top picks from Challenge #442.

We have a *Gold Star* pick - the first one for a little while too! It's Liz, with this great snippets 'Shutter card'. I absolutely love the card and design - plus, and it's a big plus, Liz has included a link in her post. To her very first tutorial video - and it's brilliant! I certainly will be making a shutter card before too long.

I really love this card, made by Carol G. It's a different technique, using snippets  and only adding the lovely colours once the shapes are glued onto the card front! Clever stuff and Carol also has a video link to another crafter showing the technique.


How cute are these adorable little Christmas penguins that Glennis made? Perfect to pop some chocolate in and a wonderful way to use up a bunch of sbippets as well! The grand children are bound to love them!


And last, but not least, Alice made this gorgeous card. A fabulous quilted effect using up a load of snippets. Love the fact that the frame is sparkly - great idea! Sweet image too - harmony reigns.

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

Onto the prize draw, for the embossing folder and dies - and the winner is:


To claim your prize, please send 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 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! 

A little 'heads up' about our next fortnightly challenge which opens on Christmas Day. There's a theme - which is 'Anything BUT Christmas'. Just to give you a little bit of advance warning! There isn't a 'Grand Draw' with multiple prizes this time, but we're both sure you'll want to join in with an entry when you find out on Christmas Day just what the prize is!
