Here are my top picks from Challenge #444.
What a great card from Christa! I love Leo the Lion and what a fun way to use up lots of lovely snippets as well. Great idea to incorporate the patterned papers reflecting animal patterns - I spy zebra and giraffe at least.
Aw - how adorable is this sweet teddy bear and a pile of (his?) presents. Lucky bear if so! Helen always does such amazing paper piecing - a truly lovely card! Great colouring as well.
Our lovely Carol L came to play - and for a cuddle with Dudley I suspect. It's heartwarming to see Carol still playing along with us and sharing her talent. We always LOVE a herringbone card - such a super way to use snippets!
Oh wow! What a fabulous idea this is - brought to us by Susan B. Susan always makes such lovely cards, and this is no exception. I'm sure that those sweet snippets hearts positioned as they are, weren't just a happy accident - perfect!
Four picks this time as I truly couldn't whittle it down.
If you're a pick or 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 £50 (or overseas equivalent) craft voucher - and the winner is:
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. In addition, please include the details of the craft store you would like your prize voucher to come from.
I expect your prize voucher is most likely to come via email - the equivalent to £50 sterling. That's just under $61 and I can't see that it will be easy to buy a voucher for that amount so I propose that the voucher will actually be for straight $60. Once I hear from you, I'll arrange for a voucher to be sent to you. Please remember that if any post and packing charges apply when you order using the voucher, you will need to cover them yourself. I bet there's a bit of a Happy Dance going on right now!
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 another celebratory prize to be won as well!
After that, we'll return to normal for a while - whatever 'normal' is in the Snippets Playground!
Finally, many of you will already know that our Janis (Woolbright) unexpectedly left us far too soon, just over a week ago. A lovely lady who will be very much missed for the Cat Lovers Hop. And by me for the gentle humour in her emails and quite a lot of invaluable advice when Dudley was just a little puppy. RIP our sweet Playmate - hope you're running around surrounded by all those kitties you loved over the years. Thoughts are also with Janis's family as well - her son James has been kind enough to keep her Facebook, as well as her blog, up to date.
Anyhow - if you haven't already joined in with the current challenge - what are you waiting for? Shoo!
