Results of Challenge #474

Hello folks - hopping in with the results from Challenge #474. We had a bumper number of 42 entries and quite a few new faces - Sarn and I , along with Dudley, have been celebrating by seeing who could swing the highest on the swings! As a child I once, only once, swung high enough to actually go over the top bar on a swing - no-one told me what a sudden thump you came down with, rather like a stone falling rather than the exhilarating swoop I'd expected! I never tried that particular trick again - probably lucky I didn't break my neck!

Here are my 3 top picks (in entry order) - which were whittled ,with enormous difficulty, down from my short list:

I love this really happy card made by LesleyShe actually made a huge selection of them and they really are uplifting! Loads of snippets used and a lot of patient work too!

Karen C also hopped in (no pun intended) with a lovely variety of cards. Another very happy and fun card - that smile just cracks me up! Plenty of snippets used here too.

And last, but by no means least, Kath skipped in with this absolutely gorgeous Christmas card. Each year, Kath chooses a theme for her cards - this year it's 'green and gold' - so elegant and a lovely result.

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

The randomly picked winner is:

Sue (Zouave Cards)

Please claim your prize by 23rd March 2024 by sending your name and address details via email using the Snippets Playground email address shown in the sidebar, with PLAYGROUND WINNER in the subject line.
