Let's move straight into this fortnight's picks:
This is two weeks running for Karthikha - Gold Star last time and a pick this time! I love this shaker card and the clever use of the interwoven snippets meant I had to share it with you for inspiration. Brilliant!
What a great card, made by Janice. It's 'punch art' made with a mix of dies and punches - and very cleverly done too! I used to make cards for a little boy who adored diggers and would have loved to have this as inspiration - err, instead I bought a die one year and other times used Len to create images using Clip Art.
I instantly knew this had to be a pick when I saw Charlotte's entry! What a cracking idea and a super way to use up snippets of course. A perfect card for a chap and so well explained by Charlotte - follow the link! Love it!
And last, but by no means least, take a look at this fabulous card, made by Franka - one of our newer Playmates. It's a double fold and to really appreciate it you need to check Franka's blog post out. She uses the name Inkami for her blog and what really delights me is that she uses my snippets card for inspiration. Not a CASE, it's always a lovely fresh twist based on one of the elements - in this case it's the roses on my snippets card I used for the challenge and such a compliment.
I've noticed that Franka tries to comment on all your entries and would love it if you could visit her to return the favour - comments are always so welcome as we all know. You won't regret it - her work is fabulous.
We had two new Playmates this time round:
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 your own snippets.
We had 50 entries in total, with two new Playmates this time round.
Now for the prize draw, which is for three Lawn Fawn Shammys (or should that be Shammies?). And the winners are:
The numbers look a bit 'clustered' but in fact it took a few goes to find people who had said they wanted to play for the prizes! So in reality, the Random number selector was actually pretty random.
Congratulations girls! You're sure to love your shammies I know. Please send me your addresses, with your full name at the top as well so I can copy and paste for speed and ease. It's also confirmation that you still would like the prize of course and I'll do my best to post your prize later this coming week. 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 #380 - you can find it HERE. The prize is a Clearly Besotted 'Best Balloons' set of stamps and a matching 'Best Balloons' set of dies.
I managed to post off all Overseas prizes this past week. Spent ages weighing then checking and double checking the right postage. They're coming by Airmail so that's something for previous winners to look forward to!
Dudley finally had his grooming session yesterday/today actually as I type. He looks gorgeous, albeit so much shorter. The process was quite well controlled and I skipped to the head of the 'social distancing queue' for the other pet supplies. He's quiet right now so no photos - but nothing like as stressed as he was after his previous brutal treatment with the other 'groomer'. He's been treated with love and care - and for that we're so grateful.
Am more or less used to the new Blogger interface. Hooray! Time will tell if there are any hidden trip wires I guess.
Remember it's the Rudolph Days Challenge beginning on Thursday 25th over at ScrappyMo's!
I've slipped a bit on commenting on the current Playground Challenge but hope to catch up ASAP!
Love from Parsnip, a happy wave and woof from Dudley - and of course hugs as always from me. Stay safe - and keep on crafting.
