First of all, let's dive straight in with, as planned, we ended up with just three picks from the previous challenge to keep life simple here:
I adore this marvellous wreath card made by Kathy A - just LOOK at all those snippets, wow! What a stunner.
What a fabulous array of snippets on this wonderful card made by Karen (Letchworth) - a real work of art and all the different shades work together so well. Which is a feat in itself!
Love this card, made by Sue (Morris) - so wonderful for a chap and what a die that is! Wonderful use of snippets and I think Sue will get loads of fun out of her die (eek, it's a Simon Says Stamp one, which is a real treat for us UK gals). I'm off to check it out!
That's my picks from a very quiet challenge 392 in the Playground, only 36 entries and no new Playmates. I'm putting it down to the 'run up the Christmas' pressures and truly hope that, after the Grand Draw currently running is finished, which always gets plenty of entries, the normal fortnightly numbers will go back up again. We shall see.
Now for the prize draw, which is a Spellbinders 'Chevron Border' die. And the winner is:
Congratulations Tina! I'm sure it's absolutely ages since you had a win, so well done, I did say that always nipping in for the very last entry place wasn't always Mr Linky's favourite choice! And of course, you will still be in the Grand Christmas Draw as well.
Please send me your address, even if you know that I know it already, 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(s) ASAP this coming week, depending on our weather here. 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 two more weeks week to run on the Grand Draw Challenge #393 HERE. The prizes are numerous and varied - with plenty more to appear in future posts until the closing date of 9th January 2021 (I keep writing the year 2021, in the hope that it will be so much better for us all!)
It's time to make some more biscuit treats for Dudley. I'm tempted to try another new one, which has wholemeal flour, polenta, rolled oats and doggie peanut butter in. He's certainly been happy with the varieties to date ☺ Another recipe uses Vegemite and I'm sure one of you said you'd made similar for your own dogs in the past so there's a jar of Vegemite also in 'Dudley's baking ingredients box' ready to try. ☺
Another Grand Draw prize will appear very soon so keep checking - and I promise to knuckle down and catch up commenting on your Grand Draw entries, as I type I'm quarter of the way through commenting. I've been tracking all your own comments in case any one got into a pickle and have been drawing up the various lists of entries for each prize.Do please make sure you comment on the right prize and don't cause confusion by referring to a different prize. I'm easily discombobulated!
Love from Parsnip, the usual happy
'high-five' and woof from Dudley and we hope you're enjoying the break between Christmas and New Year. It's really my favourite part of the festivities as we use it as time to relax, have a fight or two (just checking if you read my drivel) and enjoy the Christmas decorations, new toys etc. without all the pressure we went through beforehand. Mind you - our social calendar isn't exactly brimming over with engagements! Santa brought me a new camera to play with, amongst other goodies, so that's likely to keep me out of mischief! 'Look this way and smile Dudley'. ☺
