Pixie's Snippets Playground - Weeks 315 and 316 - plus Tombow Sand Eraser winners
That has now closed, along with being able to comment on prizes - on the dot of 11am this morning - here in the chilly UK. I'll publish the winners next Sunday along with the fortnight's picks - much the same as usual but with a good few more prizewinners of course.
Speaking of prizewinners, before I move onto our prize for the coming fortnight - here's a list of the 20 winners of the Tombow Mono Sand Erasers. I used the random number generator but it takes too long to fiddle around publishing 20 screen shots, so you'll have to trust me.
1 - Christine Smith
13 - Carol L
8 - Sue (Morris)
28 - Janice
35 - ScrappyMo
5 - Karen L
18 - Viv
31 - April
9 - Lynne in NI
15 - NanaConnie
7 - Val
29 - Lia
22 - Kathy A
10 - Liz C
12 - Kath
19 - Alison C
20 - Sandra H
24 - Em
33 - Helen
16 - Sandy J
I took the time and trouble to link back to your blogs - only hope I got them all correct! The names are right - even if the links aren't.
To make life much easier for me in terms of addressing all these prizes, can you please send me an email with your name and address (my addy is on the RH side bar) with Eraser as the subject. I know I have a good few of your addresses but it would save me from flipping through files and old emails - a quick copy and paste into a labels template here would help me loads! Thank you - and congratulations to all the winners!
I'm not holding any of the eraser prizes back waiting for the 'big draw' - once a prize is drawn and won then it's got to be sent on its merry little way, otherwise I get into a real pickle. I'd rather post two packages and keep things in order :) Besides which, it sends Parsnip into a little white fluffy ball of confusion!
Now we've got the 'eraser draw' finished off - let's see what's on offer this coming fortnight:
One could always buy a synthetic shammy and cut it up to use - in fact am sure we have some in a cleaning cupboard here, bought at the Ideal Homes Show many moons ago! But, I like the size and also the pretty colour - although it's only fair to say that it will become stained straight away - but 'oh boy' will your stamps be lovely and clean! It just works with water like any shammy and whilst it apparently will clean off some amount of the permanent inks such as Stazon - you're probably still stuck with using the proper cleaner for those. But, for water based inks (which as I said will also stain the shammy, just so you don't get a surprise!) this really is the business - and no more nasty little pieces of fuzz to catch you out! I keep mine in a poly zip lock bag in a drawer beside me - with just enough left open for it to breathe. I think a stained shammy means happy stamps :)
As always, the Snippets Challenge will run for two weeks and the Playground gates will close at 11am UK time on Saturday 20th January. The gates will open again at midnight UK time on the same day.
It's a maximum of ONE entry and please say in a comment if you wish to play and be a possible winner of the prize. Please also link back to the Playground in your blog post to be eligible for the draw.
Remember, if you link into the Playground and don't say clearly that you're wanting to be in the draw then you will be bypassed if your name comes out of Mr Linky. I'm sure you all know I ask for a positive 'yes' - just in case you're playing only for fun. Thanks!
Mr Linky is below - please let me know if you have any problems linking, it's easy for me to sort out so don't struggle on alone :)
Be sure to call back next week to see the winners of last fortnight's Bumper Christmas/New Year giveaway! Again, we won't have a guest designer but I'll be showing my 'picks' from last fortnight of course.
Love from Parsnip (he's still recovering from being such a little Hampshire piglet over Christmas, in between fussing around muttering about padded envelopes and the number of lists I have here!) and of course from me,
Thank you so much if you take the time to comment!

I've just seen that my name has popped up for one of the erasers. Thank you SO much, It will be so useful, the number of times I've tried to disguise the odd ink smudge! If it's okay, can I have my name put in the draw for the shammy please, it looks like another useful piece of kit. xxReplyDelete
It looks like 13 is my new lucky number!! Thanks so much, I am anxious to see how this eraser works! Thanks so very much - I'm emailing you shortly. I will also enter a card for this challenge and say yes please to the shammy drawing too! Have a great week ahead and thanks so much!ReplyDelete
Congratulations to the lucky winners. Love the colour of the stamp shammy, I think we've got a regular one around, I'll give it a try.... have a wonderful weekend... MeganReplyDelete
I thought I went to the post office a lot, but oh my goodness--they really must consider you a friend! So many prizes to mail & you haven't even done the bonus draws yet! I keep my sand eraser on my table, so know all these folks are going to love having this. Must say--it sometimes works like a charm & for other inks not so much, but very worth having! I almost bought a Stamp Shammy, but never did, so please include me in the draw, Ms Di! Stay warm! By the way--we'd always trust you with the draw, so no need to ever do the screenshots if that would be a help running The Playground!ReplyDelete
Congratulations to the winners! I didn't enter that one as I already have one - love mine though :)ReplyDelete
Yes please to the stamp shammy! I have been really wanting one!!
BIG congrats to all the winners of the Eraser!ReplyDelete
I have seen this Law Fawn Stamp Shammy, and it's very intriguing! As you say the baby wipes always leave little fuzz on the stamps and is a shame waste them. So I will love win one of these items. Hope to enter early with a snippets card.
Yeay, thank you, I'll put it to good use. I've not seen that shammy before but it sounds good. I always use the cheapest wet wipes after a tip I heard from Barbara Gray years ago. They have fewer loose fibres but, of course, just one can leave you spitting. Yes please to the draw. I have lots of ideas brewing so hope I can get a card in. xReplyDelete
Congratulations to all the winners of the sand eraser . . . A V useful addition to yr craft room tools.ReplyDelete
I have been using a Stamp Shammy for a few months now & it's very stained but works perfectly. I love mine &am sure whoever wins one will be delighted with it. I'm not as organised as Di, so mine is always drying out rock hard, but it just needs wetting again & it's ready for use in seconds. Good luck xxx
Ooh thank you Di - so pleased I’ve won one of the sand erasers, I’m sure ut will earn its keep!ReplyDelete
Thanks to you and Mr Random for picking me as a winner of one of the erasers. I'll be in the playground soon and would love a chance to win the shammy please.ReplyDelete
Lucky me for being picked as one of the eraser winners - thanks so much. The shammy is something new buts looks so handy so could my name be popped in the hat please - those stray fibres which get onto stamps are such a pain!ReplyDelete
I think I should go out and buy a lottery ticket...I'm definitely on a winning streak at the moment!ReplyDelete
That stamp shammy looks awesome...those baby wipe fibres are the bane of my life! I'm a 'yes please'...
Congrats to the eraser winners. So glad to see your challenge pop up in my blog feed. Extra incentive to use the scraps always welcome. Please add me to the shammy draw. Looks like a useful tool. Back soon with a scraps project. HUgzReplyDelete
congrats to winners!ReplyDelete
that shammy is great!
I have one that one friend from Australia sent me .
How lovely to see I am a lucky winner Di, thank you so much. I’m really looking forward to erasing my faux pas’s! Congratulations to all the other winners!ReplyDelete
The shammy looks brilliant, so I’m a yes please for this if you don’t mind. I’ll be entering my card soon.
Thanks ever so much, Janice x
Thank you for popping over to my blog and leaving such a lovely comment Di - to be honest I am very naughty and don't use many snippets these days 'cos I've got so much stuff and I pop the bits and pieces in a box and forget about them and I have such a guilty conscience!! I will try to do better missus and use some bits up - if only just for flowers - which are almost always on my cards!!! Big hugs to you and have a great 2018 Sue PxxxReplyDelete
Hi Miss Di and the lovely Parsnip.ReplyDelete
Happy New Year to You ,Len, and Pasnip.
Wishing you the very best for this New Year.
Yes if I'm lucky as that sounds wonderful.
Sorry I have been missing for a while I've had that nasty cold bug thing for weeks now and it's still not shifting.
One min you think oh I am at last getting better, and then it knocks you for six all over again.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
That looks a very useful prize, so it's a yes please from meReplyDelete
Congratulations to the winners of the erasers and I know you will find them very useful as I have one thanks to Di, and wouldn't be without it. If I get a card in then I am definitely a 'yes please' for the chance to win a shammy as I have seen this used by Jennifer McGuire and it looks like a useful bit of kit. xReplyDelete
Hello Di, you have been busy. I've just had a lovely time scrolling through your Christmas posts and admired your lovely cards too. The last few weeks haven't been an easy time for my family - three deaths in as many weeks - so wasn't able to keep up with all those fabulous giveaways. Congratulations to the winners. I should try to find the eraser and cleaning cloth tov- I can see they'd be a boon. Regards to Parsnip - his adventures really give me reason to laugh out loud :) Regards to Len too. Hugs, Elizabeth xxReplyDelete
Well you certainly have had a busy start to the year and I hope Parsnip has the post room well organised for you. I'll be back later with my snippets make but I shall be playing just for fun xxReplyDelete
Yes please for the shammy prize draw! I think even if I not the lucky winner, I shall invest in this product. I have been caught with the fibres from the wipes as well and it is a waste of good copic paper!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for the eraser win. You are such a generous soul. I never got a chance to take part in your other celebrations as we were both sick here with a nasty flu. We are still suffering the last of it...Al much more than I now.
HUGE Congratulations to all the lucky winners named above.ReplyDelete
Happy New Year to you all too .... just uploaded my entry for this fortnight's snippets challenge and saying a resounding YES PLEASE to the stamp shammy prize
Happy New Year to you Di!!ReplyDelete
Wow Di, what a big job you had to do. My compliments for all your patience to choose the winners and sending the prizes. I am so glad I am one of the lucky ones!
Today I see the new prize and did not know this item untill now. So: yes to this shammy!
Have a nice day,
Wow! Thanks so much, Di! I'll be back tomorrow with my latest entry, so it's a yes please from me.ReplyDelete
Many congratulations to all the winners and thank you l am one of the winners too my details will be sent shortly xxReplyDelete
Oh, my goodness.....are those annoying fibers on my stamps from the baby wipes???? I thought they were CAT HAIRS!!! Seriously. In my craft room, I likely have both...lol. Yes, please, to the shammy/chamois prize drawing.ReplyDelete
Congratulations to the winners of the Sand Erasers. I have one that I manage to employ quite regularly. I appreciate its small size because it fits easily into the cubbies in my drawer organizer. I know that the winners will get a lot of good out of their prizes. You are so kind to share your windfall.

Hello Di, seems like you've had a busy few weeks. I haven't played in awhile so thought I'd stop by and wish you all the best for 2018. I'm just playing for fun as I don't participate all the time but it was here that my challenge blogs happened so its nice to pop back :) xReplyDelete
Congratulations to all Lucky winners! Goodness here!'Would love to see Shammy at my craft table, so a big YES for this prize!ReplyDelete
Congrats winners...would love to win..please count me in..ReplyDelete
Congratulations to all the winners. I love the idea of the shammy so it is a yes please from me. Take care. Hugs JackieReplyDelete
Congrats to all the winners! I have to say, I have been wondering about the shammy. It would be useful not to have those bits on the stamps and probably save the environment from too many baby wipes. So yes please! And always, thanks for hosting this great challenge!ReplyDelete
Gosh Di you have got your work cut out..you are so kind. The erasers are brilliant, the lucky winners will love them. I haven't seen this shammy before and would love to try one, thanks for the chance. I'll be back in the morning with my snippets card. Enjoy your evening, hugs xxxReplyDelete
Congrats to all the lucky dogs, I mean lovely peeps :-) that won an eraser... I'm not jealous AT ALL, lol. You must be so glad the marathon is behind you Di, back in rhythm now. Yes please for a chance at the shammy... another thing I didn't know I needed until you showed me, rofl.ReplyDelete
Av a good one, as we say here, Donna xx
Congrats to all the winners. Stamp shammy looks amazing, so yes please.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Di! I'm sure you must be up to your ears in emails and padded envelopes - all your hard work is very much appreciated. Yes please to Stamp shammy. Hugs, April xxReplyDelete
Di, Please include me in the drawing for the prize. Thank you.ReplyDelete
Congratulations to the winners of the erasers. I just can't imagine how you are managing to sort it all out Di but I'm sure it's much appreciated by us all. Yes please include me for the shammy draw. It sounds like a great idea. BarbxxReplyDelete
Yes please for me too Di, they sell out very quickly when you can find someone that supplies them and they run out again before you get a chance to purchase them lol! Your card above is beautiful too, such a cute image! Karen xxReplyDelete
Well done to all the winners and yes please to going in the hat for the shammy. I feel guilty about all the baby wipes I use, and I have a hairy black stamp cleaning mat but I've noticed stamps I've cleaned with it don't seem to give such a sharp image afterwards - I think it sort of "blunts" them, so I seldom use it unless a stamp is really badly stained.ReplyDelete
Finally I'm entered with my snippets card! :D Yes thank you for this super-prize!!!ReplyDelete
Just found your blog, great inspiration. Yes please for the chance to win the shammy - what a fab product. I'd given up cleaning my stamps properly because I kept getting all those annoying fibres.ReplyDelete
Just entered my make for this fortnight Di, and yes please to the shammy, might make me clean my stamps a bit better!ReplyDelete
I'm just playin' for fun this time Di, it looks a good idea but I'm happy with my stampin' scrub :)xxxReplyDelete
Thanks again Di for another snippets challenge : )ReplyDelete
Yes please to the shammy prize draw.
I'm going to play just for fun this week, Di. I'm so hooked on digital images that I rarely have 'lint' issues anymore and the prize needs to go to one of the gals who might really use it. :-D Besides, I was a Tombow Eraser winner and that's wonderful! :-DReplyDelete
My first time entering here, woo hoo! Thank you for the chance to win (yes for the prize!) and thank you for this inspiring challenge idea! Happy to hav found my way here!ReplyDelete
Yes Please! I would love to be in the draw for the prize - it looks so useful! Thank you! Hugs xxxxxxxReplyDelete
Thank you for the eraser Di, as you'll see from my card it came in very handy! Yes please to be in your draw for your shammy - I'm a dirty beast who never cleans her stamps ;)ReplyDelete
Better late than never! I am trying to get back into crafting after what seems like a very long time off with a virus. I am glad I remembered to take photos of these cards before I sent them.I would love to be in the draw for the shammy. I hadn't heard of them but what a good idea. Kate xReplyDelete
I love the ease of using the baby wipes (and for the most part, the price can't be beat!), but those little fuzzes are sooooo annoying!! So, yes, please enter me in the draw. Though if I don't win, I might go still one of my husbands new car cleaning shammies!! Shhhh . . . don't tell.ReplyDelete
Congratulations to all the winners! Those shammy cleaners are so awesome! My friend Barb gave me one a couple of years ago during a visit and then I passed the idea on to our little SU group and now they all do it. I'll bet the baby wipe industry is wondering what the heck happened to their sales as this idea is slowly spreading far and wide, haha!! Thank you for spreading the word and for another challenge - just a wee bit of snippet, but it's a snippet!! Hugs, DarnellReplyDelete
Happy 2018! I have a shammy (the ole car one, not the cute LF one) but love it!ReplyDelete
A belated Happy New Year, my friend! I'm bringing my sled in hopes that Parsnip and the girls will join me in some sledding. It's been a while since I've been on a sled and I'm a bit rusty. Hope there's a bonfire to warm us a maybe something warm and tasty to drink?ReplyDelete
How fun...yes please!ReplyDelete
197 day break from crafting but I am back! Will be linking my card later today (just finishing the post). Please count me in for the prize draw :)ReplyDelete
Just playing for fun. I bought a large synthetic shammy at the local supermarket and cut it up into 4 pieces. So far, I'm really happy with the results.ReplyDelete
Big congrats to all the winners :-)ReplyDelete
Yes please to the shammy prize draw.
Yes please include me in the draw, I saw the video too and those shammy's look great. CarolGReplyDelete
