Results of Challenge #458

Let's leap straight into the three top picks in numerical order for Challenge #458, which was 'Christmas in July':

What a great card from Suzanne H. Loads of snippets which 'gel' together beautifully - and so festive for Christmas! Love it!

Beautiful set of snippets cards from Emma T - a Playmate who is always inspirational in the Playground! I just LOVE mistletoe at Christmas - although, with having Dudley Dog, ours are 'realistic' but artificial. Don't know if it's true about the berries being poisonous or not but we try not to take chances!

And my third choice is from Carrie HERE - who used lots of snippets for her lovely Christmas card. Also, there's a current craze for using six 6" x 6" designer papers, cutting them into a prescribed pattern and then making a bunch of 15 cards incorporating the 'snippets'. Looks like fun - check out Carrie's blog for more detail and links!

The randomly drawn winner of the bundle of Christmas goodies 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.

Don't forget folks, Sarn is still running our final week of 'Christmas in July' Challenge, with a great bundle of goodies to be won - HERE! And no doubt there will be the usual celebrations going on but if Dudley Dog staggers home with his bandana all askew and a silly grin on his face once more during 'Christmas in July' - I shall be having serious words with 'Miss Mischief'! His duties do not include being chief cocktail taster! 😂

Love from Di and Dudley
