Anyhow, let's get straight on with the fortnightly 'picks' and first of all we have a *Gold Star* - this is absolutely stunning with SO much careful detail:
Do please take your Gold Star from the RH side bar Donna - and thank you for such a fun entry!
And here's the rest of our fortnightly picks:
Heidi had been making Christmas cards, using square and circular snippets to create backgrounds - so colourful and such fun - as well as great use of snippets!
These all used snippets in ingenious ways that might inspire you girls to try for yourself - which is one of the aims of the Playground of course.
We had one new Playmate joining us this time:
So that was one new Playmate this time round - and we had a total of 49 entries. Bit of a drop but totally fine by me, given the lack of time I've had to comment. In fact, as I type this I haven't even managed to comment on any entries for the current challenge - but Len is home (rain stopped play at archery) so I hope to get some peace to play catch up after I finish this post.
Now it's prize draw time, and our two winners of an MFT 'WISH' die are:
Two lovely winners - I'm sure it's a first win for Pippa and also that Karen hasn't won in the normal draw for about a year. Well done ladies!
Do please send me your addresses, with 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. 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 confirmation that you still would like the prize of course, not that I doubt it really! 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.
Remember folks, there's still almost another week to run on Challenge #336 - just check back a bit and you'll easily find it. The prize is a set of dies as well as a single die, two lovely items making up one prize, kindly donated by Viv.
And, here's a photo of Dudley to finish off with:
Lying on my glass cutting mat on the desk is one of his favourite places - which certainly puts paid to crafting. He woke up just before I took this photo, hence the 'bad hair day' look! We're working on the tear staining as well during his brushing/grooming sessions with me - which he generally loves ........... until you take a pad to wipe near his eyes of course! He was also weighed at the vets and has put on half a kilogram in weight since he arrived here, so he now weighs 2.35kg which is just right apparently. Hooray!
And my shoulder is almost back to normal again - double hooray!
Hope you all have a lovely week ahead, and little Parsnip and Dudley (woof!) send their love too!
