Let's get straight on with the fortnight's picks:
I just love the Playground for new ideas and techniques to try out!
Let's also welcome two new playmates as well:
|Chandini (and our first set of twins in the Playground as well!)|
Hi there girls, so glad you came to play and we do hope you come back again soon!
So, we had two (three really) new playmates this time and a total of 67 entries. I'm so happy that numbers are really healthy - and of course that you're using up some of those dreaded snippets!
Now it's prize draw time, and our winner of the Clearly Besotted 'Hoppy Easter, set of stamps and matching dies is:
I'm pretty sure that Janice is a big fan of 'Clearly Besotted', so this should make her smile a lot when she finds out! Please send me your address Janice, with your full name at the top as well so I can copy and paste or just write straight from the email onto the envelope - for speed and ease. It's also confirmation that you still would like the prize of course and I'll post your prize once I hear from you. Please put Playground Winner or similar in the subject line of your email in case it drops into my junk mail. Email address is on RH sidebar as always and I'll post the prize off to you ASAP this coming week.
Remember folks, there's still almost another week to run on Challenge #349 - you can find it HERE. The prize is an MFT 'Stitched Diagonal Cover Up die' and an Impression Obsession 'Thanks' die.
And, a few people have commented that they wouldn't attempt to line the stripes up as I did on my 'sample snippets card' for challenge #349. The thing is, that's exactly why I lay in bed pondering just how it could be done to always work without fail. And, by following my little instructions below that card - I promise you it WILL always work. Basically you're cutting the sentiment die in exactly the right place, every single time! In a way, it's a bit like cutting a sentiment into a patterned piece of paper to make a 'camouflage' card. And those always line up perfectly don't they?
Afraid there's no new photo of Dudley this time round. He's booked in for a grooming session on Thursday so I'll try to take a photo - once he's back home looking all freshly bathed and groomed.
The hedgies are still visiting each night, and somehow they've avoided being around when Dudley goes out for night time toilet trips - amazing really, but no doubt it'll happen as time goes on.
And lastly, I'm almost back to how I was before the dreaded gout - hooray! My GP has agreed that I need to go onto preventative medication, after giving things a further month to totally settle down. Phew - although it isn't infallible, it's the best option there is.
As always, Parsnip and Dudley send their love, and so do I of course!
