Results of Challenge #450


Let's plunge  straight into the three top picks for Challenge #450, in numerical order:

What a gorgeous bouquet of flowers, created by Lynne R! Wonderful use of plenty of little snippets, gorgeous colouring and a perfect result!

Love, love this adorable Easter card - made by Alice. Such a lovely design, fresh Spring colours - and also the image is currently a freebie over at Gerda Stein. Alice has a link on her blog post if you want to download it!

I adore the simplicity of the Easter cards that 'Papierelle' brought to share with us. When you look closely, there's actually a lot of work colouring the pussy willow branches. The sweet little tails swung it for me - how clever to use real little pussy willow fluffy buds!

It's totally coincidental that the picks this week are flowers or Easter - just the way it turned out. Every single entry was great and, as I always say, it's a tough job picking just three to showcase.

The randomly drawn winner of a set of Pretty Pink Posh sentiments and the Woodware 'Van Cat' set of stamps is:
And once again, one of our picks popped out as the prize winner! Incredible - well done Alice, it's been a while since you were a winner so it's all the sweeter we hope!
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! 

I have yet another Easter appearance by 'that Bunny' over on my own blog - HERE.

Love from Di and Dudley
