Results of Challenge #449

Hello Playmates, I'm popping back in the middle of Di's challenge, to share my Top Picks and the prize winner for Challenge 449.

Here are my top picks (in entry order):

I adore this brilliant masculine card (below) by Sandra H. It's a great layout and has plenty of dimension - and a super guitar charm too!

Just look at all these brilliant vintage tickets and stamps made by Granne (below). Great for anyone making junk journals or vintage ATCs.

This beautiful card full of green and gold dragonflies (below) is a stunner. Made by the talented Bonnie. The leafy embossing makes a perfect background.

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

The lucky winner of the two die sets is No 30:


Congratulations Kate. 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 address so that it can be copied and pasted for speed and ease.

Remember there's still 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

Challenge #450

A new challenge and here's my snippets card:

Sorry, it's Christmas once again, all the details, with Dudley's latest news, are over on Pixies - HERE.

The prize for this fortnight is: 

We had some lovely dies available in Sarn's last challenge and so it's perhaps time again for some stamps - both sets are from the Snippets Toy Box. It's a set of Pretty Pink Posh sentiments called 'Crafty Sentiments' and a Woodware set of stamps called 'Van Cat' - the sentiment reads 'Keep Calm and paint'. I just KNOW there will be a 'stampede' for the crafty sentiments stamp set - it's super! And 'Van Cat' is a pretty cool guy as well!

As always, the Snippets Challenge will run for two weeks and the Playground gates will close at 11am UK time on Saturday, 1st April. The gates will open again at midnight UK time on the same day. Mr Linky is below this post. 

Please remember to either state what snippets you used on your entry, or add a photo of them, otherwise it won't count in the prize draw.

Winners outside the UK: please remember that you may be charged fees and import duty on your prize - although we both always send them out clearly marked as "gifts". 

Love and hugs from Di and Dudley,

Results of Challenge #448


Right folks, let's get straight onto the three top picks for Challenge #448, in numerical order:


I picked this card, made by Granne, as it's a very clever, pretty simple (if you are artistic with layouts and colours) way to create a super and very effective card - using either circular punches or dies. Love it and a great way to use up snippets of course!


Really lovely Christmas card from Lesley - using lots of snippets too. I do love that Lesley even created stencils using the snowflake dies - and those mittens - SO cute! Sweet colours as well, HOW can Lesley always make it look so effortless?


Oh WOW - what a card! Susan S really came up trumps with this totally fabulous 'crammed full of candles' card! It is SO gorgeous - all 65 of them - great work Susan! That is taking snippets well above the bar - and also your patience I suspect.

We had so many fabulous entries once again - it certainly gets much harder to choose as the challenges go on. You are all so talented and we do love to see your entries - sharing how snippets can be used very effectively. 

The randomly drawn winner of a 'dandelion clock' embossing folder, also stamps by Whimsy and Your Next Stamps is:
Straight out of the 'trap' like a greyhound - Susan's name popped right out as wanting to be in the prize draw - and so thanks to Mr Random - she won! A 'pick' as well as the winner of Challenge #448's prize in the draw! How cool - a double whammy!
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! 

Love from Di and Dudley
