Pixie's Snippets Playground - Challenge #370 - results

This week's post is likely to be a quick one for the Playground results - Storm Dennis is here. And 'Storm Dudley' is in full flow, racing around upstairs - and  also leaping on and off our bed, using it as a trampoline and generally having a whale of a time. It's taken a week but it's so lovely to have him causing chaos again!

Let's move straight into this fortnight's picks:

Brenda L brought these two fabulous cards to share!  So clever, and made without any templates. Most certainly one to CASE - just perfect for a chap!

What a stunning Christmas card, using tons of snippets (aka scraps), made by Jenny L I love all the different detail.

I do so love this adorable cat card, made by Glennis. Loads of snippets used and such a clever idea to ink in the balloon strings and attach them to the 'puddy tat's tail'! 

We had four new Playmates this time:

Raga - girls,  DO please go and check the link, this is such a fabulous card and there's a video as well!

Linda (of Snail's Pace) - someone we've probably seen around Blogland, now playing with us! Adorable card!
Lucy E - CAS at its best!
Nicole G. Unfortunately all that's linked is this photo of her card, no words, no nothing. I'm letting it go this time but under our rules it wouldn't count in future as there's nothing else there to support the photo as a snippets entry - but it's very cute! I can see from the URL that it's using a Germany based photo facility, the word Wilkommen is of course Welcome, it's for a baby, and it uses some snippets by the looks of it. Do please email me Nicole if you want any advice about joining in with the Playground - we'd love to have you play!

So, that's my picks and I do hope they've given you some inspiration for ways in which you can use up some of those snippets.

We had 55 entries this time round - and of course we had four new Playmates.

Time now for the prize draw, which is for a Clearly Besotted 'Simply Succulent' set of stamps with matching dies. And the winner is:
Emma T

Well done Emma. I think your last fortnightly win was in November 2018 - so this is well overdue! Please send me your address, 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.

Remember folks, there's still almost another week to run on Challenge #371 - you can find it HERE. The prize is a Lil Inker 'Boxed Up Thanks' die.

Parcels and packages are still arriving at Mary's - she's having to buy new roller carts to store all the goodies :) Thank you so much girls for pitching in to help.

  17. Lovely picks again Di and congratulations to Emma on her win. Great to have so many new playmates this week. xx

  18. Congrats to Emma and all the top picks! The cards by Brenda L are just amazing and would make the perfect masculine cards for so many occasions. I'll have to remember this design for future birthdays, Father's Day, etc.

  19. Hi Miss Di and the lovely Parsnip and of course cutie Dudley.
    Sorry I am late with this thank you for choosing my card as one of your picks.
    I have not been too well and seem to be getting one thing after another of late.
    Now it seems I may have Gout coming as I deescribed it to my sister who looked after my Dad when he had it, and she says that was how he was.
    I know you have suffered with it too.
    So now I realise how you felt.
    I have just had injections in my varocoise veins and need to walk atound a lot and sit for long periods which is sometimes so painful.
    My daughter has to pop in every morning and put a stocking on my leg which is such a job and half oh the joys of getting old.
    I do so hope you are no longer in pain from your.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  20. Hi Diane, thank you for my prize, i love it and very different for me so will get the old grey cells working. Thank you for your extra kindness in letting me know. Internet back so trying to catch up. Hugs Emmax
