We were in brilliant company for Challenge #56 - Christmas Snippets with the very lovely Di - The Queen of Snippets as our elfin inspiration.Thank you so much for being a fabulous elf, Di! You've been so supportive, so generous with your time and creativity, and great fun 'backstage'. I can't thank you enough.
And you guys, haven't you been amazing too? The standard has been nothing short of jaw dropping for this challenge and a 112 beautiful snippets cards filled the gallery! Thank goodness I had Di to hold my hand and help me pick some favourites. Our short list was very long and I'm sorry that so many of you just missed out for our Top Picks.
We both loved how Greta used the Disappearing Nine Patch technique for her card.

Such a classy design using parcel snippets.
Elegance, simplicity and perfect positioning of the different
elements combine to make this a truly beautiful card.
Prudence blew us away with her careful and creative Christmas tree card.
