In the absence of a guest designer, I thought I'd give you a laugh and show you some of my early card creations now and again.
here if you want a closer look. At the same time I made another card almost the same, using pink of course. I still have this stamp set (I hope!) and it's overdue for an outing! Just laughed here, I didn't get one single comment - the blog was only a couple of months old at the time :)
Let's do a very quick scamper around my picks for this fortnight, no particular theme - just entries which caught my eye:
I chose this card, made by Charlotte as it's so bright and cheerful - and such a lovely design of course! Charlotte has a video over on her blog if you'd like to see how she made it! Citrus colours really are so perfect for Summer cards - and the little bird totally tones in with his background of course :)
So that's just three picks from a host of fabulous entries. Some entries are really detailed and some very CAS - but every single one is worth checking out I promise you!Why not have a browse if you haven't done so already.
No new Playmates this time round and 56 of you came to play! I'm hoping that we'll have a few more entries than we have at the moment for the current challenge as that stitched tag prize is such fun - and you certainly don't need to be a master seamstress either! But, it's holiday time and also many people are suffering from high temperatures - and not just in the UK.
Prize draw time now and our winner of the Art Impression 'Doggy Kisses' stamp set is:
Do please send me your address Carol, with full name at the top as well so I can copy and paste - for speed and ease. I don't keep addresses of previous winners, even if they might be in my private address list - if that makes sense! It's also cofirmation that you still would like the prize of course, not that I doubt it really! I'll be off to the Post Office 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.
Speaking of prizes, one prize I sent to Canada has finally arrived there - TWO whole months later! Phew - relief as I don't seem to be able to replicate the goodies at the moment.
Remember folks, there's still almost another week to run on Challenge #331 - just check back a bit and you'll easily find it. The prize is an MFT 'Cross Stitch Label' die set - and if you don't have any threads of your own, and you're the winner, I'll be happy to enclose a little selection of ready wound bobbins!
Hope you have a lovely week ahead, and that you come and play - if you haven't done so already!
Love from the little white peril Parsnip - who has emerged from the duck pond at last! So now we have a little green bear .......... he forgot about the algae didn't he .......... and he stinks! Someone's going in the bath tub later on, sssssshhhhhh :)
