Results of Challenge #454


Let's take a dive straight into the top picks for Challenge #454, in numerical order as usual:

Linby (Lynn) made this really lovely card, immediately using two items from her Snippets Challenge #452 prize win. Talk about quick off the mark and it's always really lovely to see people using their prizes to make a snippets entry. And what a super card as well, very elegant.

This glorious card by TK is a lovely work of art and dedication with SO many snippets used in the design. And a little reminder from TK, Press n Seal clear film is a great way to pick up pieces that you've got laid into an arrangement and transfer them safely onto your card front. Am almost certain the idea originally came from Jennifer McGuire, whose husband invented Press n Seal - Amazon sell the film BTW.

And my final pick this time was made by Susan S. Such a wonderful way to use up snippets and a great reminder of the 'wave' card technique! Always perfect for CAS cards, especially for 'chaps'. One of Len's great-nephews has a Birthday coming up in June and I may very well make him a 'wave' card! Thanks for the timely reminder Susan!

Please take your 'picks' badges for your blogs - if you wish of course - from the top bar.

We had some lovely entries, as always. My short list had five 'picks' on it - but I was strong and whittled them down to the usual three that Sarn and I aim for. It's always heartening when people come to play with us every fortnight - keep it up girls. Mind you, with the warmer weather here I expect the outdoors might be beckoning to a lot of people - make the most of it whilst we've got it! Sunshine can be as rare as hen's teeth in the UK, but when the sun does come out to play it's a total delight!

The randomly drawn winner of the two sets of dies from Positively Papercraft 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 very nice prize to be won as well! 

Love from Di and Dudley
