Results of Challenge #445

Hello Playmates - Sarn here - popping back in the middle of Di's challenge, to share my Top Picks and the name of the big prize winner for Challenge 445.

Like Di - I had real trouble whittling down my picks to just 3, so this time around I have a Top 4! As always, they are listed in entry order:

I simply adore the cute polar bear (below) and the way that Lynne in NI thought outside the box by using Christmas stamps for a birthday card. Perfect for a winter birthday

New playmate, Ellie, bought along this cute Happy Birthday card (below) featuring a sweet Penny Black mouse and lots of snippet strips.

Heather made this lovely homely scene on her card and used up a PILE of teeny tiny snippets in the process. Just gorgeous!

The beautiful quilted card (shown below) was made by KATE L. The pastel coloured snippets remind me of Laura Ashley or Cath Kidston fabrics. The personalised letters complete the look and really complement the quilted pattern below - plus the sentiment is SEW perfect! LOL! 

If you've been showcased, please feel free to collect your 'Top Pick' badge from the 'Badges' page HERE.

Drum roll please . . . the winner of the craft voucher for £50 (or equivalent in any other currency) is no 34:

LYNNE R (Lynne's Craft Haven)

Congratulations Lynne. Please claim your prize by sending 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 addressIn addition, please include the details of the craft store you would like your prize voucher to come from. Once I hear from you, I'll arrange for the voucher to be sent to you by post or email. Please remember that if any post and packing charges apply when you order using the voucher, you will need to cover them yourself.

There's nearly a week of Di's challenge to go. If you haven't submitted a piece of homework yet, just scroll down to the previous post to find all the details.

Hugs, Sarn xxx
