Whilst musing about my snippets card, and also that the Playground is such a happy place, I remembered a sweet little stamp I bought ages ago, and from that, this card took shape:
- 5.75 x 5.75 square pink card blank
- stamp by Flonzcraft called 'Kindergarten, Children Swinging', stamped using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink pad
- I then stamped the sentiment using a stamp from Kaisercraft's 'Life Sentiments' set and Memento 'Tuxedo Black ink pad
- one whole pink backing sheet and various snippets from First Edition's 'Bird Song' paper pad. To create the 'sunburst' effect I followed this great tutorial - perfect for 'snippets busting' :)
- snippets of SU's 'Certainly Celery' card from the snippets folder
OK, onto this week's picks:
And we also have some new playmates:
Lisa brought us this lovely card to see - I'd seen the sketch Lisa followed and ran away in horror but she really cracked it!
A huge welcome to the Playground girls and hope you both come back again to play soon.
There are two draws this week of course. First of all the weekly prize of the Penny Black 'Hello Sunshine' stamp was won by:
And now for the Taylored Expressions 'Mr & Mrs' die plate.
19 of you entered at least three times in total over the two weeks so I numbered the qualifiers and ran the Random Number thingy. I did try to check that you hadn't forgotten to add a 3 after your third entry. And the winner is:
This coming week's prize is of course linked to my snippets card.
As usual, the snippets challenge will run for one week and the Playground gates will close at 11am UK time on Saturday 8th March and will open again at midnight UK time on the same day. Maximum of three entries and please say 'No thank you' in a comment if you wish to still play but not be the winner of the prize. Do also say if you're only interested in part of the prize as I can then do a further draw for the remainder.
Please NEVER be afraid to say you're just playing for fun - it doesn't offend me at all, and the Playground is first and foremost for us to have fun, the prizes are just a thank you for playing :)
Mr Linky is below - please let me know if you have any problems linking, I can sort it out for you quite quickly and am always happy to do so.
