Here's a super card made by Franka (Inkami). Again, a very elegant card and plenty of snippets used. Red and either gold or silver are such wonderful companions on Christmas cards.shared with us by Kitty - it looks good enough to eat really. Wonderful combination of snippets as well!
We had two new Playmates this time:
|Jennifer H, with this fabulous male card|
|Pauline C with a lovely vintage card|
Now for the prize draw,which is an Echo Park 'Candy Cane Christmas' set of dies plus a Neat & Tangled 'Medallion Flower Builder' set of dies. Kindly donated by Kathy A. And the winner is:
Congratulations Karen! Knowing your 'love of die cutting', you'll love these dies. Kathy will post/mail it to you directly from her home 'across the Pond'.
Please send me your address, even if you know that I know it already, with your full name at the top as well so it can be can be copied and pasted for speed and ease. It's a good prompt for me and also confirmation that you still would like the prize of course. 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 one more week to run on the current Challenge #415 which you can find HERE. The prize is a lovely floral Penny Black slapstick/cling stamp called 'full of glee', kindly donated to the toy box by Darnell.
Challenge #414 was in aid of Ruby's Memory and I just sent off a further donation to USPCA, the rescue charity who saved Ruby and gave her the chance of the wonderful life she had with Lynne and Greg. That means, thanks to your generous prize donations, and the addition of Gift Aid tax relief onto my donations in lieu of buying prizes, we've raised £175 for USPCA so far.
And, there is some really happy news over on Lynne in NI's blog, in case you missed it - take a look:
Meet 'Miss' Molly, who has joined Lynne and Greg as their new little Westie fur baby. We all know that a new doggy can never, ever actually replace Ruby - but this little sweetie will surely help to heal the massive holes left in Lynne and Greg's lives and hearts, coming up to a year ago now - as well as becoming a much loved and very important member of the family. In time I think she and Ruby will blend together all the love in your home and almost become as one. We all wish you three loads of happy times ahead - and wee Ruby will always be in our hearts and watching over you all for sure.
Am currently doing a turn as Guest Designer over at the Christmas Kickstart Challenge - run by the very sweet Jo. The theme is Christmas of course - and it's snippets! Please come and join in HERE.
On Friday I had my COVID booster jab, with no reaction so far other than feeling as if someone punched me in the arm. The organisation was brilliant, unlike the local health centre's chaotic and hopeless 'organisation' of flu vaccinations six weeks ago. Hats off to the NHS - so that's both of us up to date with our flu and COVID jabs. Little Dudley has his doggy booster jab in December but we're keeping that under wraps!
