Results of Challenge #457

Hello Playmates - Sarn here - popping back in the middle of Di's challenge, to share my Top Picks and the prize winner for Challenge 457.

Here are my top picks (in entry order):

Maxine's homework (below) was for a commission . . . and what a splendid job she made of this card, involving snippets and stitching. She didn't just stitch the flowers on the card front, ohhh no, she went ahead and did the same for the inside too! A lovely keepsake for such a special occasion for sure.

Carol S bought us a basketful of beautiful flowers (below). Lots of intricate and colourful die cutting going on here. Such a lovely easel card for a special occasion.

I make no apologies for choosing another card with pretty flowers! Alice's beautiful floral card (below)  is a work of art. She even used the leafy die cut negatives to stencil a background. Absolutely gorgeous work. 

And . . . yes . . . I just couldn't resist adding a fourth piece of homework as a top pick . . . because Kathy A's little dog image on her card is so like our own Playground Pup Dudley and the sentiments (inside and out) were so cute! Plus she used up a heap of snippets in the process! I think I heard Dudley do a little bark of appreciation and saw him dancing around in circles on his hind legs (because he CAN!).

If you've been showcased, please feel free to collect and display your 'Top Pick' badge from HERE.

Next up: the prize winner of the embossing folder, stencil and stamp set is No. 36:

Kathy K

  1. Great picks Sarn - and well done to Kathy for being our winner of the prize draw! Dudley is currently flat on his back fast asleep on my side of the bed but will be thrilled to know that Kathy A thought he deserved to feature on such a lovely card - it really is uncannily like him!
