Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 281 and 282 - results

Hello again! Time for the fortnightly round up of  the Playground which includes our latest Guest Designer, some 'picks' of the fortnight and of course the prize draw.

As this publishes I should be playing at my old School Reunion in Stratford Upon Avon - not sure about dancing on the tables this time though! Len and Parsnip are 'home alone' and probably having a great time without me :)

We have another Guest Designer this fortnight, and it's Megan of 'My Merry Card Corner'. We have not one, but two, snippets cards from her:

Wow - two really gorgeous cards from Megan - and showing some great ways to use up snippets of course! Love the fresh look of these cards, perfectly designed and made and the colours are so lovely. Aren't the dies stunning as well - just read what Megan has to say about the cards and the dies below:

I have been trying to have a clean up of my desk and make use of the large volume of snippety bits currently holding a take over bid of my desk top, I found this strip of paper and decided to make two cards to use it up, I dug around in my box of snippets for some co-ordinating card to layer the bits on and came up with these two designs, I have also been trying out some of the super cheap dies I have bought online from China and I will not be accepting any responsibility for enabling any of you!!!! 

Something Megan says that's so true - snippets do make a bid to take over the place! 

Megan is a much more elusive creature than many of you are - despite really searching I can't find much out about her ..... so she shall remain a 'lady of mystery'. I do know that she's been blogging since January 2015, has quite a few wins for her designs, lives in Australia - and that's about it! No profile photo either. But, she's one very talented lady and I do think you should hop over to her blog for a closer look - and perhaps add yourself as a follower at the same time?

Let's move onto my picks from this past fortnight - tough call as always! I say that every fortnight and it's so, so true! To be honest, each one of this fortnight's picks is worthy of a Gold Star, so ladies do feel free to pick up your badge from the RH sidebar!

Vinita made this fabulous Mothers Day card - as I said on her blog, it's jaw-droppingly gorgeous! What a wonderful Mothers Day card - and so much fabulous detail as well. The huge pink rose she made for the front is stunning - and there's lots of detail about the whole process over on Vinita's blog too.
Diane H made this marvellous window scene - if you look closely there's even a little cat peeping out of the window! So cute and I do like the modern feel of this card.

And finally, Sonia made this stunning garden shed! Again. she has loads of information about the process over on her blog - the attention to detail is utterly amazing isn't it! I squealed at the darling little hedgies of course :)

That's my three picks - I do hope they will inspire you as well girls. They're extremely detailed pieces of work, that's the 'theme' I homed in on this fortnight. Of course we had loads of fabulous ways to use up snippets, so I do recommend that you grab a cup of coffee and spend some time visiting blogs - the thumbnails with links are always there for you to look back over.

59 of you joined in this past fortnight - with one new Playmate:
What a fabulous card, made by Claire of 'String Bows'.

Welcome to the Snippets Playground and I do hope you return to play again soon.

Prize draw time now and our winner of the MFT 'Chevron Edger' pair of dies and a set of Waffle Flower 'Flora Cat' stamps is:
Well done April - can you please drop me an email with your address in and I'll post your prize off as soon as possible once I return from my 'jollies'! As you're such a cat lover I think you'll be extra pleased with Mr Random! My email address is on the right hand side bar.

Keep those snippets entries coming girls, you still have a week left to play HERE remember! And the prize is a W Plus 9 'Doodle Buds' stamps set and the Avery Elle 'Postage Elle-Ments' die set.

Love from the little white peril - and of course from me too
